The VA’s office of information and technology gave the company a $19 million contract to develop and provide training for the wireless infrastructure.
The company received the contract through the department’s Transformation Twenty-One Total Technology, or T4 vehicle.
Through that vehicle, the company will also integrate the health record systems of the VA and the Defense Department.
Twenty-six VA sites will use the enterprise-wide infrastructure to deliver voice, video and real-time mobile healthcare services.
Harris’ partners for the two-year contract include Advanced Management Strategies Group, Synaptek Corp., and TL Services Inc.
