Military health records contract awarded

The Department of Defense's Theater Medical Information Program has awarded a $47.8 million contract to Lockheed Martin Corp. to develop and integrate software applications.

The expected total value of the contract includes $10.25 million for the first year, plus five option periods.

The new software will be able to generate and maintain standard electronic medical records that travel with a military patient from the theater to central Defense Department health care facilities. These records can then be consolidated and made available to commanders in near real-time through the Global Combat Support System.

TMIP is a joint program between the Tricare Medical Activity and the Defense Department’s Military Health System. Its mission is to provide an interoperable, integrated suite of software tools that pull together data from several existing Military Health System medical applications.

The program’s applications are designed to operate in austere communications environments and run on handhelds, notebooks or client-server systems.

TMIP is designed to address shortcomings identified during the Gulf War. These deficiencies included the inability to consistently capture information within and between military services, a lack of interoperability between systems and deficiencies in communications between medical groups.

Linda Gooden, president of Lockheed Martin Information Technology, said the company has assembled a strong team to complete the work. Teammates include Booz Allen Hamilton Inc., EDS Corp., Equalnox Consulting Inc., Integic Corp. and ScenPro Inc.
