TYSONS CORNER, VA, January 10, 2020 â€” Perspecta (NYSE: PRSP) collaborated withÂ PRA Health Sciences (Nasdaq: PRAH) to develop a web softwareÂ platformÂ to helpÂ the Department of Veterans Affairs recruit and engage potential health research volunteers nationwide,Â GovCon Wire reported Wednesday.
The companies created the MVP Online software-as-a-service platform to support the VA's Million Veteran Program, which studies genetic influences on health,Â Perspecta said Tuesday.
The system is based onÂ PRAâ€™s mobile clinical trial application toolÂ and designedÂ for volunteers to accessÂ information about the national research program as well asÂ provide their consent to participate.
â€œMVP Online will be an incredibly useful tool for the VA today, but will also serve as a platform to allow current veterans to help transform health care for future generations of veterans to come,â€ said Mac Curtis, president and CEO of Perspecta and a 2019 Wash100 winner.
