Arlington, Va.-based Vangent Inc., a global provider of information management and strategic business process solutions, announced it was awarded a $15.6 million contract by the Office of the National Coordinator (ONC) for Health Information Technology to promote the adoption of health information technology, improve methods of health information exchange (HIE) and provide subject matter expertise as program manager for the Federal Health Architecture (FHA) and CONNECT initiative.

Under the contract, Vangent will provide ONC with program management and health IT management consulting capabilities and run the FHA and CONNECT Program Management Office (PMO). This contract award also calls for Vangent's health IT subject matter experts to work directly with federal healthcare agencies such as the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) to increase adoption of the CONNECT solution.

Under the new contact, Vangent will also support FHA integration with the National Health Information Network Standards and Interoperability (S&I) Framework and federal involvement with the National Health Information Network DIRECT project. The Vangent Team will also manage FHA and CONNECT operational performance and financial tasks. The Vangent team of partners (Iris Partners, SAIC, and Spire Communications) has already built a solid foundation of success from its previous work with the FHA and CONNECT, serving as manager of the FHA Program Management Office since its inception in 2004 and and program manager for the CONNECT initiative since its inception in 2006.
