The wins include contracts and work orders for implementing electronic health record products and systems in health information technology, life sciences and behavioral health services.

SAIC attempted to significantly accelerate its healthcare business in the third quarter of its 2012 fiscal year through its acquisitions of maxIT Healthcare and Vitalize Consulting Solutions.

“We are pleased to continue supporting all of our customers in both markets, whether it’s helping to implement EHRs at hospitals to maximize efficiencies, or using health analytics and other solutions to enhance the health and deployment readiness of our military personnel around the world,” Comber added.

The biggest contract award that the company won this quarter was a Naval Health Research Center R&D contract worth $24 million.
