Unisys Corp. won a four-year contract potentially worth $132 million to provide worldwide implementation and training for the Defense Department's electronic medical records system, the company said today.
The system, called the Composite Health Care System, will supply medical records for approximately 9 million military health care beneficiaries, including active-duty personnel, reservists, retirees and family members.
The system integrates government-owned software with commercial products and delivers information to all Army, Navy and Air Force military hospitals and clinics, ships and deployed medical facilities.
The contract is for one year with three one-year options. Unisys can earn an extra $2 million for the base period and each option year by meeting or exceeding various performance measurements.
The system will maintain the pre- and post-deployment physical examination records for all troops along with information about chemical or biological agents to which they might have been exposed. The data can be sent electronically to the Veterans Benefits Administration to help ensure appropriate follow-up care and benefits for veterans and their dependents.
Based in Blue Bell, Pa., Unisys is a global systems integrator that employs more than 37,000 people and had 2003 revenue of more than $5.9 billion. It is No. 28 on Washington Technology's 2004 list of prime federal contractors.
