Ellumen Inc. Increases Presence in Medical Logistics Arena with Additional Task Added to Incumbent Contract Award
Ellumen Inc., a trusted provider of professional services and IT solutions, was recently awarded a contract for incumbent work with the Department of Defense (DoD) Defense Health Agency (DHA) for the LogiCole Documentation, Training and Independent Verification and Validation Testing Services (IV&V). LogiCole represents the third iteration of the DHA integrated suite of business process applications that was initially known as DMLSS (Defense Medical Logistics Standard Support), and more recently DML-ES (Defense Medical Logistics—Enterprise Solution). DML-ES represents the DoD MEDLOG IT Portfolio of capabilities that provided a continuum of medical logistics support for the DHA. LogiCole is the technical refresh of DMLSS, transitioning all MEDLOG applications into a single, web-based application supporting all medical logistics functions in the Military Health System.
In 2015 the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) was facing a problem. As the VA OI&T organization was charging forward to align with target architectural goals and prepare for the next phase of clinical data sharing with the DoD and other partners the VHA clinicians were becoming concerned. Their clinical data sharing applications, used daily in the treatment of thousands of veterans, which provide access to longitudinal health data from the DoD were slated to be sunset, and a viable replacement was not yet available on the enterprise level. VHA clinical staff recognized that this issue was not just a mere inconvenience but had the potential to cause patient safety issues and negatively impact the overall quality of care provided to our nation's Veterans.
