Telos will host infrastructure engineering and operations services that support federal health services to American Indians and Alaska Natives
CHICKASHA, Ok. and ASHBURN, Va. – May 10, 2017 – Indigenous Technologies, a DNI (Delaware Nation Industries) company, and Telos® Corporation today announced they have been selected by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to operate the Indian Health Service (IHS) network that serves American Indians and Alaska Natives across federally-recognized tribes within the United States. Indigenous Technologies is a Native 8(a) company that provides IT services and solutions and Telos is a leading provider of continuous security solutions and services for the world’s most security-conscious organizations.
The Indigenous Technologies-Telos team will host infrastructure engineering and operations services at Telos’ secure operations facility in Las Vegas, NV. The team will manage and maintain the existing network functionality and design as a distributed electronic health care information system that securely exchanges patient information within its network and with other health care providers. It will also implement and support new network technology.
IHS is an agency within HHS that is responsible for providing federal health services to American Indians and Alaska Natives. The provision of health services to members of federally-recognized tribes grew out of the special government-to-government relationship between the federal government and Indian tribes. IHS is the principal federal health care provider and health advocate for Indian people that serves approximately 2.2million American Indians and Alaska Natives who belong to 567 federally recognized tribes in 35 states.
“As a tribally-owned company, we are very proud to select Telos as our partner to deliver valuable services in support of the Indian Health Service,” said Jason Pruner, CEO of Indigenous Technologies. “Telos’ capabilities and services are proven across the federal government, and we couldn’t ask for a better partner to deliver critical services to our nation’s tribal members, including those of our own Delaware Nation.”
“We are deeply honored to support our Native American communities, and expand our partnership with Indigenous Technologies to deliver services in the healthcare market,” said John Wood, chairman and CEO of Telos Corporation.
