The Washington-based Department of Defense (DoD) signed a contract with San Diego-based CliniComp to deploy its Essentris inpatient clinical documentation solution in 36 additional military treatment facilities.

The new contract more than doubles CliniComp’s current installations for the DoD, expanding the company’s role as the DoD-wide provider of inpatient clinical documentation solutions for the clinical areas of the Military Health System across the Army, Navy and Air Force, says the company.

CliniComp’s Essentris is a multidisciplinary suite of solutions comprised of inpatient clinical documentation; CPOE; and decision support tools for hospitals with both low and high acute care specialties and complex environments including military treatment facilities, academic medical centers and integrated delivery networks, touts the company. The solution is expected to be deployed within 18-24 months.
