Northrop to build military health care database

Northrop Grumman Corp. will deploy, enhance and maintain a health data repository to help the Defense and Veterans Affairs departments share patient information, under a $10.3 million contract.

The Clinical and Health Data Repository initiative provides real-time exchange of computable health data between the Defense Department's electronic health record system, AHLTA and the VA's HealtheVet patient record system, VistA.

Northrop Grumman's Information Technology sector of McLean developed enhancements to AHLTA for the Clinical and Health Data Repository project under a contract award in 2005. Northrop Grumman has supported the AHLTA system as the primary systems integrator and developer since 1999.

Northrop Grumman's IT sector will provide systems engineering and integration, information assurance and security, configuration management, technical support and system enhancement and maintenance.

The company will conduct work on the project in Chantilly, Va., South Jordan, Utah, and various Defense Department and VA medical facilities nationwide.

Northrop Grumman of Los Angeles ranks No. 3 on Washington Technology's 2007 Top 100 list of the largest federal government prime contractors.
