Department of Veterans AffairsSystem enhancements expedite healthcare claims for veterans

PALO ALTO, Calif., March 6, 2012 – HP today announced that the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) has selected HP Enterprise Services to continue as a prime contractor for the Compensation and Pension Record Interchange (CAPRI) support program to help deliver quality healthcare to veterans.

HP will provide overall project management, business process analysis and testing services as well as software design, development and support services. The contract extends HP’s 10-year involvement with the CAPRI application, and the company’s relationship with the VA, which has spanned more than 12 years.

The CAPRI application enhances the efficiency of claims processing by allowing the Veterans Health Administration and the Veterans Benefits Administration to share medical data through the Bidirectional Health Information Exchange system. The CAPRI software provides online access to medical data, which enhances the timeliness of the benefits determination. This will facilitate expedited claims processing and improved quality of healthcare for disabled veterans.

“Providing quality healthcare in a timely manner to veterans is a top priority for the VA,” said Marilyn Crouther, senior vice president and general manager, U.S. Public Sector, HP Enterprise Services. “By enhancing the CAPRI application, HP and the VA will provide faster access to healthcare for veterans by expanding the VA’s information exchange network and expediting the claims cycle.”  

Over the term of the contract, HP will team with small, veteran-owned businesses Systems Made Simple Inc. and V-Tech Solutions Inc. to complete the project.

In support of the CAPRI Program, HP will deliver comprehensive, secure technology solutions to support the VA’s patient-centric delivery of high-quality healthcare to the country’s valued veterans.

In a world of continuous connectivity, HP enables agencies to become Instant-On Governments with technology, security and innovation embedded throughout their organizations to deliver immediate services to citizens and clients.
