Harris Corp. will implement surgical workflow management software across the Department of Veterans Affairs' 130 hospitals under a five-year, $54.9 million contract.

The Melbourne, Fla.-based contractor is implementing and operating the Centricity Perioperative Management software of GE Healthcare. It's the VA's first enterprise implementation of a commercial, off-the-shelf clinical system, according to the agency. The system will support scheduling, accessing patient profiles, ordering tests and tracking surgical assets.

The workflow software will integrate with disparate surgical information systems across the VA. Harris also will put the software in 21 Veterans Integrated Services Networks, which are regional integrated care networks.
