General Dynamics Corp. will provide a range of medical technical expertise to the Army under a five-year task order that could be worth as much as $154 million.
The award calls for General Dynamics Information Technology business unit to support the Army’s Program Executive Office, Enterprise Information Systems’ Medical Communications for Combat Casualty Care Product Management Office (MC4 PMO).
GDIT will provide the full spectrum of predeployment, deployment, on-site, redeployment and garrison support to MC4 PMO system activities.
In addition, the contractor will assist at worldwide training events, including combat areas and contingency operations.
General Dynamics has partnered with MC4 PMO for the past five years to support the office’s vision for improved tactical health care and better decision-making through information technology, said Zannie Smith, senior vice president of GDIT’s Army Solutions Division, in a statement.
The Medical Communications for Combat Casualty Care office integrates, fields and supports a comprehensive medical information system that facilitates lifelong electronic medical records, streamlined medical logistics, and enhanced situational awareness for Army tactical forces, the GDIT statement said.
Since 2003, MC4 has installed 35,000 systems at combat support hospitals and deployable medical facilities in 14 countries for the Army, Air Force, Navy and Army Special Operations Forces. The program has trained more than 44,000 users, commanders and systems administrators on how to use and support the system, GDIT said.
General Dynamics, of Falls Church, Va., ranks No. 4 on Washington Technology’s 2009 Top 100 list of the largest federal government prime contractors.
