SAIC Awarded $158 Million Task Order by Defense Health Information Management System
Company to Continue Support to Military Health System Community
AHLTA, the military's electronic health record, gives healthcare providers access to data about beneficiaries' conditions, prescriptions, diagnostic tests and additional information essential to providing quality care. CHCS was designed and developed for the Department of Defense (DoD) by SAIC. CHCS is a fully integrated hospital information system that helps capture, manage and share health data across the DoD enterprise by connecting medical departments, hospital wards, outlying clinics, laboratories, and pharmacies. These systems enable the Military Health System to track clinical care and exposures of deployed units, monitor demand-management effectiveness, better understand disease prevalence and prevention, and study both clinical and management outcomes. Under the task order, SAIC will continue to provide engineering, logistics and sustainment support for AHLTA/CHCS, ensuring the quality care of 9.4 million beneficiaries of the Military Health System TRICARE Program.
