Most folks don't know how instrumental SAIC (NYSE: SAI) is in the electronic health record biz for the government/military. Well, it is, and this $53 MM contract helps show it.

SAIC, Inc. announced it was awarded a prime contract by the Department of Defense to provide information technology (IT) services and electronic health record systems support to the TRICARE Management Activity Military Health System (MHS). The contract has a one-year base period of performance, three one-year options, and a total value of $53 million if all options are exercised. Work will be performed in Falls Church, Va. and San Diego, Calif. Under the contract, SAIC will provide IT services as required, to improve the current electronic health record (EHR) by addressing existing technical and functional EHR challenges. The services include the necessary fixes to the legacy EHR systems and architecture so that the EHR capability will be more reliable, stable, user friendly and perform with adequate speed. The contract also provides for the new capabilities that need to be implemented in support of the Captain James A. Lovell Federal Health Care Center in North Chicago.
