Army seeks COTS support for mobile health system

The Army’s Telemedicine and Advanced Technology Research Center is conducting market research for commercial software and other support to supplement its bi-directional secure mobile health system, the Mobile Health Care Environment. MHCE serves as a secure mobile messaging system that facilitates patient-to-provider, patient-to-system, provider-to-provider and provider-to-system interactions. 

The Army’s current MHCE system is a hybrid of interoperable government and commercial off-the-shelf  technologies. The system must provide the following features:

  • A mobile application platform capable of supporting all current major industry mobile operating systems and a select number of feature phone run-time environments.
  • Secure mobile content management with a dynamic publication mechanism through MHCE system settings.
  • Mobile application protection featuring encryption of data at rest and in transit.
  • Seamless integration with biosensor technologies for home health monitoring that leverages a “bring your own sensor” model.

Responses are due June 24, 2015.
