Military health directorate joins Army ERP system

Military health directorate joins Army ERP system

The National Capitol Region Medical Directorate (NCR MD), a part of the Defense Health Agency, is the first organization outside of the Army to fully integrate into the General Fund Enterprise Business System (GFEBS)

GFEBS is one of the largest enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems in the world, processing 1 million transactions a day for some 79,000 end users at more than 200 sites worldwide.

Accenture fully deployed GFEBS for the Army in 2012 and recently delivered the solution to NCR MD.

The web-enabled financial, asset and accounting management system standardizes, streamlines and shares accurate, up-to-date financial and accounting data across the Active Army, the Army National Guard and the Army Reserve.  It also streamlines business processes by creating a single source for financial, real property, cost management and performance data, as well as a core system of record for the Army General Fund.

The NCR MD exercises control over the largest military health market: seven military and joint service military treatment facilities and related facilities that include family health clinics and related facilities in the region.  Its focus is to integrate services to provide convenient and accessible healthcare for the area’s military community.

With this integration, NCR MD officials will be able to access and analyze financial data in real time, giving more reliable and accessible data for improved decision making. GFEBS also will make it easier for NCR MD to work more closely with business partners, including the Army and the Defense Finance and Accounting Service.

“GFEBS is a solid foundation to help NCR MD meet the medical needs of our servicemen and women, enhancing support capabilities for our wounded warriors while addressing Congressional mandates for greater financial accountability of tax dollars,” said Joe Chenelle, who leads Accenture’s defense and intel business.
