Federal Health Solutions

At the intersection of a changing health IT environment and the rise of new pressures and complexity in how our nation provides and pays for health care, fresh solutions are essential to enable federal agencies to meet the country’s health care needs. Lockheed Martin applies emerging science and technologies to improve health outcomes and enhance access to affordable care, priorities for U.S. economic security.

As an experienced systems integrator, Lockheed Martin is uniquely qualified to help federal health agencies operate more efficiently and securely. We integrate complex streams of data across multiple systems and operators to engineer secure and efficient healthcare solutions, every day.

We collaborate with federal customers and a robust network of partners to address the growing national priority of quality health care, while implementing solutions to significantly drive down costs. Our diversified portfolio spans a wide array of customers, services, solutions and capabilities:

Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC): A CDC partner since 1999, we provide a variety of IT and operational services that support the Office of Public Health Preparedness and Response (OPHPR) as it prepares for and responds to public health threats.  We provide 24/7 support to their Emergency  Operations Center, ensure their grant management system processes vital aid for state and local health departments, assist with accounting and tracking for the Strategic National Stockpile and provide additional consulting and technical services. Lockheed Martin has collaborated with the CDC to provide solutions to public health professionals around the globe.  These solutions include tools to help predict the spread of disease and manage response logistics.  We also deliver real-time satellite telecommunications, decision support capabilities, and most recently direct emergency response services to address the Ebola and Polio health crises.

Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS): For more than a decade, we’ve helped CMS by providing consolidated IT infrastructure support and helping transition to computing platforms and technologies that help ensure Americans have up-to-date healthcare coverage. Under the Virtual Data Center (VDC) contract vehicle, we are working with CMS to apply Green IT and data center consolidation best practices to help reduce their overall energy footprint and capture efficiencies. In addition, HLS manages CMS’ National Data Warehouse, which provides mission critical information essential to the quality of service to all Medicare and Medicaid beneficiaries.

Food and Drug Administration (FDA): We are applying advanced analytics, real-time decision support solutions, and modern software development practices to support the FDA’s modernization effort of one of its core systems essential to protecting the health of all Americans. The FDA headquarters and field inspection staff relies on the Mission Accomplishment Regulatory Compliance Services (MARCS) system to monitor and oversee all imports of food, drugs, and radiological devices into the United States.

National Institutes of Health (NIH): Access to clinical trial data is essential to protect the health and safety of the public. Lockheed Martin’s support to the NIH’s National Cancer Institute (NCI) includes the aggregation, management, and enhancement of secure data access related to clinical trials. Our managed cloud solution,  SoLaS, helps the NCI enable clinical cancer research across the country, including government, industry, and public health collaboration. For the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development, HLS established a comprehensive Down syndrome patient registry in 2013 for individuals and families. This comprehensive and integrated patient registry was the first critical step to communicate the most recent advances in basic and translational Down syndrome research. 

Sponsored by NIH Information Technology Acquisition and Assessment Center (NITAAC), the CIO-SP3 contract vehicle is available to all federal agencies for awarding IDIQ contracts for a wide range of IT products, services and solutions. For more information, visit our CIO-SP3 page.

Social Security Administration (SSA): We provide engineering and mission solutions to help SSA leverage the latest advances in IT and business processing capabilities. For example, we partnered with SSA to develop a digital IT system, eDib, for processing disability claims across the agency’s 1, 500 locations nationwide. The eDib system now processes more than three million claims per year, enabling SSA to achieve cost savings, reducing cost to taxpayers, and making the claims process easier and faster for disability applicants.  Building upon this historic modernization initiative, Lockheed Martin is currently working to replace 54 unique state/territory level disability systems with one national Disability Case Processing System (DCPS), greatly reducing costs and improving service to some of the nation’s most in need citizens.  Our 25 years of progressive innovation with SSA continues with robust initiatives around Big Data, Data Analytics, mobile Solutions and Agile software development methods.

Department of Veterans Affairs (VA): Lockheed Martin supports the IT infrastructure and systems for the Bi-Directional Health Information Exchange (BHIE), which is currently the most-used capability for sharing electronic health record information between the Department of Defense and VA.

We are a key partner in the VA’s Million Veterans Program (MVP), a national, voluntary research program with the objective to leverage the evolving field of genomics to assess genetic influences on diseases such as diabetes and cancer, as well as illness such as post-traumatic stress disorder.

Through our subsidiary QTC, we are also the largest provider of government-outsourced occupational health and disability examinations in the nation, supporting not only the VA, but also Federal Occupational Health Service and the Department of Labor.  These services are backed by 31 years of experience and a nationwide network of over 11,000 credentialed and trained providers.  A leader in service innovation, technology, and provider network managements, QTC supports over 240,000 medical evaluations per year.
