Harris To Build Wireless Infrastructure For VA Medical Centers

Harris Corp. will build a mobile network infrastructure for Department of Veterans Affairs medical centers, the company announced Tuesday.

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.
