Accenture acquisition means new role for Traficant

Jim Traficant

Jim Traficant will head ASM Research, a new acquisition for Accenture.

Federal 100 winner and Accenture Federal Services executive Jim Traficant will soon have a new job:  president of ASM Research, the health care IT and human capital management firm which Accenture just acquired.

Traficant, who won his Fed 100 award in 2011 for his work at Harris Health Solutions on Federal Health Architecture for the Health and Human Services Department, is currently an AFS managing director.  He leads Accenture's military health projects with the departments of Defense and Veterans Affairs, and will continue in his AFS role while running ASM Research as a subsidiary company.

Traficant spoke with Washington Technology on July 31 about the acquisition and what it means for federal health IT.   The addition of ASM "provides unique access points into the market," he said, calling the acquisition and resulting business prospects a "once in a generation opportunity."
