Axiom Resource Management, Incorporated, has been awarded a contract to support health care information privacy implementation, policy development, and privacy program management support to the TRICARE Management Activity (TMA) privacy office. The contract is valued at $9.45 million over 5 years.
Doug Peardon, Axiom's Chief Operating Officer, stated that the firm was very happy to have won the privacy work. "This is important work for a highly-valued client," he said.

TRICARE provides healthcare to more than 8.9 million military personnel, eligible family members, and retirees, through a combination of military hospitals and civilian providers.
"Ensuring that TRICARE complies with all federal privacy requirements is a complicated, serious job," Peardon continued. "Axiom is proud to help them get the job done."
