Ashburn’s Mindseeker lands ‘game-changing’ $101M contract

An Ashburn-based national professional services firm has announced it was awarded a nearly $101 million contract from the U.S. Army Medical Command (MEDCOM).

Mindseeker, Inc., owned by Chris and Joanna Dobson of Leesburg, will staff and manage the remote coding service for 18 medical treatment facilities across the Central, Pacific and European regions under three five-year contracts, Chris Dobson, Mindseeker's president said.

“This was a big one for us and we will be hiring a number of people – about 200 – to support this effort,” Dobson said.

MEDCOM retains medical records for all services – Army, Air Force, Navy, and Marines – for active duty service members, family members and beneficiaries, retirees, civilian trauma and other categories of patients.

Outpatient medical records include Outpatient Clinic (OP) Records, Emergency Department (ED), Ambulatory Procedure Visits (APVs), and Inpatient Professional Service Rounds (IPSR), and other outpatient records within MHS Genesis, which is the military's electronic health record system.

Mindseeker will partner with Peak Health Solutions, based in Franklin, Tennessee for the project.

“We are proud to have successfully demonstrated through an exhaustive MEDCOM selection process that we have the technical expertise, financial wherewithal, and past performance track record that enabled this award. Having built a prior partnership with Peak Health Solutions, we are pleased to have Peak Government Services join us in this endeavor to deliver exceptional services to MEDCOM,” said Joanna Dobson, CEO of Mindseeker.

Mindseeker launched in 2000 as an IT staffing company. After several years, they wanted to grow the business and diversify, so they began elevating beyond the original business plan to include both the public and private sectors, as well as government contracting.

With this contract, Dobson said their revenue – which is listed on Glassdoor.com as between $10 to $25 million per year -- will double. The company currently has 150 employees, including internal corporate staff and billable consultants.

“We are very proud to serve those that serve us. This is a game changer for us and a testament to our focus on building the business,” Chris Dobson said.


This is great news.

Healthy to see solid achievement in a homegrown Loudoun County company. And privately owned.

Think back to the dot-com boom-burst days and how little tech employment in the county.

Great accomplishment!
