CSRA to Digitize Veteran Records
The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) has awarded CSRA Incorporated a $158 million contract to digitize over 7 million health records of veterans. CSRA subsidiary, SRA International LLC, will perform the work at the VA’s Records Management Center in St. Louis under a 36-month period of performance. CSRA currently supports the digitization of veteran files through its Intake Conversion Mail Handling Services contract. By digitizing veterans’ files, CSRA is helping the VA transform from a paper-based process to an electronic claims system, saving physical space, money, and processing time, resulting in a more efficient way of processing veterans’ records, the company said. "CSRA is proud to lead the digital transformation for the VA," said Vice President Kamal Narang, head of CSRA’s Federal Health Group. "This opportunity reaffirms CSRA’s ‘Think Next. Now.’ approach to helping our customers navigate to the digital age and save taxpayer dollars in the process. More important, this work has the potential to save lives by quickly providing doctors and administrators with key information to inform their decisions. America’s veterans have made enormous sacrifices for our country and CSRA is honored to serve those who served."
