Harris Wins $80M VA, Defense Health Record Contract

Harris Corp. (NYSE: HRS) has won a $80.3 million recompete contract from the Department of Veterans Affairs to develop an electronic health record system, NextGov reports.

The Melbourne, Fla.-based contractor will develop software to integrate the VA’s and the Defense Department’s electronic health record systems, the report said.

The Pentagon and VA are set to integrate their health record systems and move them to Defense Information Systems Agency-hosted data centers this month.

The company will develop an enterprise services bus, or middle layer software, which Federal Times reported is considered the heart of the EHR system.

A VA-Defense interagency program office will use the software.

The company won a $30.5 million contract in December to develop a central network monitoring system for the VA.
