Ellumen Inc. Increases Presence in Medical Logistics Arena with Additional Task Added to Incumbent Contract Award

Ellumen Inc., a trusted provider of professional services and IT solutions, was recently awarded a contract for incumbent work with the Department of Defense (DoD) Defense Health Agency (DHA) for the LogiCole Documentation, Training and Independent Verification and Validation Testing Services (IV&V).  LogiCole represents the third iteration of the DHA integrated suite of business process applications that was initially known as DMLSS (Defense Medical Logistics Standard Support), and more recently DML-ES (Defense Medical Logistics—Enterprise Solution). DML-ES represents the DoD MEDLOG IT Portfolio of capabilities that provided a continuum of medical logistics support for the DHA. LogiCole is the technical refresh of DMLSS, transitioning all MEDLOG applications into a single, web-based application supporting all medical logistics functions in the Military Health System.

While DMLSS provided excellent medical logistics support for the past 20 years, it was determined that a technical refresh was needed to improve the user experience and ensure availability. The refresh will provide real-time analytics capabilities supporting fast and accurate enterprise decision making, as well as highly reliable data to users. As part of this effort, the Ellumen Team’s expertise was tapped to execute an additional task for independent verification and validation (IV&V) that was added to the LogiCole contract. Under this task, Ellumen’s experienced IV&V Team will support Multi-Market Medical Treatment facilities with testing that encompasses functionality, security, capacity, and performance.

“Our Team will continue to improve business agility by optimizing existing processes and enhancing new functionality, stated Mary Vogel, Vice President of Client Solutions at Ellumen Inc. “We are very excited to continue this work on LogiCole, and we believe that a new, more efficient system will be a great asset to the users.”

As the incumbent on this contract, Ellumen’s Medical Logistics Team will remain at Fort Detrick in Frederick, MD to align training with the direction of the LogiCole product to maximize the impact of the LogiCole rollout and adoption.
