Tech giant Google has been identified as part of a PricewaterhouseCoopers-led group vying for the Defense Department’s $11 billion electronic health-record contract. PwC says Google was always part of the bid, which proposes to build a system on open-source software derived from the Veterans Affairs Departments’ EHR system, VistA. Google would provide services in infrastructure, including cloud, security, storage, networking, and enterprise search capabilities, according to PwC health IT practice leader Dan Garrett.
