OSEHRA 2018: Perspecta Sponsors Open Source EHR Summit

Press Release | OSEHRA | June 7, 2018

OSEHRA is delighted to welcome Perspecta as the Conference Sponsor for our 7th Annual Open Source Summit, to be held this July 18 – 20, 2018. Officially launched less than a week ago on June 1st, Perspecta was formed through a merger of the U.S. Public Sector Business of DXC Technology with Vencore Holding Corporation and KeyPoint Government Solutions. Those of you who follow the industry know that DXC Technology was the result of a massive merger of Computer Sciences Corporation (CSC) and HP Enterprise Services (which also included EDS).

So, while the name is new, Perspecta will bring a wealth of experience (and yes, perspective!) to this year’s event. They possess a broad array of capabilities and more than 20 years of experience supporting the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), Defense Health Agency (DHA), Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

Perspecta will be joined by Gold Sponsors Cognosante and DSS, Inc.; Bronze Sponsors HSPC and InterSystems; WiFi Sponsor YottaDB, LLC; and multiple exhibitors. Register now and join us at the Bethesda North Marriott Hotel and Conference Center for this year’s three-day event. The schedule includes an engaging combination of track sessions, town-hall discussion, and plenary events. The agenda will be exceptionally diverse, with invited plenary speakers from VA, DHA, Indian Health Service (IHS), and Intermountain Healthcare, as well as panelists from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS), Centers for Disease Control (CDC), National Security Agency (NSA), U.S. Social Security Administration (SSA), and National Science Foundation (NSF).
