Acumen Solutions® Wins Health & Human Services Contract for Cloud Computing Services in Support of Electronic Health Records

VIENNA, Va.--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--Acumen Solutions®, a leading business and technology consulting firm that specializes in bringing cloud computing solutions to government agencies and large enterprises, has been selected to provide a cloud-computing CRM and Project Management solution to the US Department of Health & Human Services - Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC).

In order to support the nationwide upgrade of our Health IT infrastructure, the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA) has allocated funding for medical providers to implement Electronic Health Record (EHR) systems. ONC has been tasked with encouraging the adoption of health information technology and the promotion of a nationwide Health Information Exchange (HIE) to improve health care. In order to effectively distribute these grants into the market, ONC is creating a network of Regional Extension Centers (REC) that will provide regionalized support to medical providers for the selection and implementation of an EHR solution.

To track, manage and report on this critical effort, Acumen Solutions will implement a cloud computing CRM and Project Management solution from Salesforce.com that will be used nationally across all Regional Extension Centers. This solution will provide the RECs with the ability to manage all interactions with medical providers related to their selection and implementation of an EHR solution.

"We are pleased to support ONC as they embark upon this critical project to improve our nation's Health IT infrastructure," says Marty Young, Managing Director, Acumen Solutions. "By choosing a cloud computing platform ONC is leading the way in innovation. We are proud to have been chosen for our demonstrated ability to help Federal Agencies weave cloud computing strategies into their enterprise architecture and as well as our strong background in the healthcare industry."

Acumen Solutions is a select consulting partner of Salesforce.com supporting Federal Agencies such as Census, DoD, GSA, IRS, SEC, and TSA with solutions for case and constituent management, call centers, customer relationship management, grants management, and program management as well as an American Recovery and Reinvestment Act solution called STARTTM - Stimulus Tracking and Recipient Transparency. With hundreds of enterprise-class cloud computing projects delivered including engagements leveraging Google Enterprise, Salesforce.com, SpringCM, and other cloud offerings, Acumen Solutions brings a proven track record in cloud computing strategy and integration to meet the needs of government agencies in record time.
