Defense inks deal to upgrade Medical Health System

The Defense Department has awarded an $11 million IT support and engineering contract for its Tri-Service Infrastructure Management Program Office.

Under the four-year contract, RGII Technologies, an Annapolis, Md., subsidiary of Computer Horizons Corp., will help TIMPO run the Military Health System, the comprehensive health information network used globally by Defense and military service medical personnel.

RGII will be working with TIMPO to install and maintain a common, standards-based communications and computing infrastructure.

"The Military Health System is a dynamic network of health care programs and technologies, constantly growing and evolving with the emergence of new standards, regulations, clinical practices and operational needs," said Kathryn Freeland, RGII's CEO. "With that in mind, our objective is to work closely with TIMPO over the next four years to plan, design, test and evaluate a flexible, yet highly secure, technical infrastructure that allows the MHS to expand according to program and patient needs."
