Anteon International Corp. has won a five-year, $117 million contract to support the Army's Medical Communications for Combat Casualty Care program.
The Fairfax, Va., company will provide program management and fielding to the program management office for all phases of the project, from predeployment to onsite support.
The Medical Communications for Combat Casualty Care program is the infrastructure that supports automated medical records for deployed forces. The program maintains medical records and supports patient tracking.
The system integrates roughly a dozen medical applications that let medics treat patients in the field, speeding access to medical records in the Composite Health Care System II database. Medics access the system via handheld devices.
