Harris Corp., Melbourne, Fla., will develop a program to allow veterans with mental illnesses to organize information on their medications and treatment plans online.
Harris wins VA contract for mental-health app
The U.S. Veterans Affairs Department awarded the three-year contract, which falls under a larger purchase agreement with a $4.5 million overall ceiling, according to a Harris news release.
The program will function through the My HealtheVet online personal health record that has given veterans access to their healthcare information since 2003. The company's My Recovery Plan application within the My HealtheVet portal will provide a Web-based interface to allow veterans suffering from mental health disorders, including post-traumatic stress disorder, traumatic brain injury and substance abuse, to track and organize all information relevant to their recovery.
Last month, Harris Corp. announced that it had received a $54.9 million contract from the VA to implement a surgical workflow management program.
