Google To Bid For The Department of Defense Healthcare Management Systems Modernization Program


Google is a part of the PwC team in the bid for the Department of Defense (DoD) Healthcare Management Systems Modernization (DHMSM) Electronic Health Record (EHR) contract.

The DHMSM program will replace and modernize the Military Health System (MHS), which currently supports more than 9.7 million beneficiaries, including active duty, retirees and their dependents.

Google's and PwC's proposal, called the Defense Operational Readiness Health System (DORHS), will help modernize the military health system and will create a single source for the medical records of service members.

"Google is known for its expertise in innovative, secure and open technologies, and the power of Internet scale. Their capabilities can complement our proposed open-architecture solution and bring added value, agility and flexibility to the new Military Health System," said Scott McIntyre, PwC's Global and U.S. Public Sector Leader. "Google can assist us in delivering a cost-effective and efficient solution to serve the healthcare needs of our military."

In related news, Google may be making another push in mobile payments.

The Internet giant is reportedly in talks to acquire Softcard, a company that helps people to pay for things using their mobile devices, according to reports by TechCrunch and The Wall Street Journal. The deal for the payments company -- a joint venture between carriers AT&T, Verizon and T-Mobile -- is said to be for less than $100 million.

Both Google and Softcard declined to comment on the possible sale.

The mobile payments technology has been a favorite of Silicon Valley companies hoping to expand beyond their roots selling devices or services and into the lucrative financial industry.

Besides market leader PayPal, Amazon, Facebook Square and Apple have all tried to become a go-to service for payments, particularly on the Web.

Google was one of the first companies to offer mobile payments, with a service called Wallet, but the offering failed to gain traction with consumers.
