A team led by Science Applications International Corp., San Diego, won a contract to continue providing sustainment services to all Defense Department military health system medical facilities worldwide.

The contract, known as MHS Sustainment, provides site operations support, upgrades and maintenance for the Composite Health Care System and numerous other clinical automated information systems at 140 military treatment facilities around the world. The contract is valued at more than $70 million over two and a half years.

SAIC began performing clinical sustainment automation services with the first CHCS contract in 1988. The program was fully deployed to all 526 military treatment facilities by 1995.

It serves more than 8 million beneficiaries and 131,000 MHS personnel, handling 51 million outpatient visits and 793,000 inpatient admissions each year.
