Cerner Corp. is partnering with Leidos and Accenture Federal Services to bid on an estimated $11 billion contract to upgrade the U.S. Defense Department’s electronic health records system. The contract would cover 56 hospitals and about 360 clinics serving the U.S. military and their dependents, including work for the Veterans Affairs facilities.

North Kansas City-based Cerner and its collaborators are competing with two other alliances for the contract: a joint effort by IBM Corp. and Epic Systems Corp., as well as Allscripts working in tandem with Computer Sciences Corp. and Hewlett-Packard.

A contract is expected to be awarded in 2015.
