The U.S. Army‘s Telemedicine and Advanced Technology Research Center is looking into commercial software and related service offerings to supplement the military branch’s mobile health information technology infrastructure.
In a request for information published June 9 on FedBizOpps, the Army said its Mobile Health Care Environment System is designed to employ government and commercial off-the-shelf applications and seeks to facilitate military healthcare provider-patient interactions.
The branch intends for the infrastructure’s COTS segment to include a mobile application platform that can support Android, Windows, BlackBerry, Apple and Java operating systems.
The Army also wants MHCE software components that can manage and secure mobile content as well as integrate with biosensors for in-home patient monitoring.
Interested vendors must send RFI responses to the military service by June 24.
