Harris Corp Receives Task Order

Harris Corporation has been awarded its first task order from the Department of Veterans Affairs to support the tracking of medication and treatment for veterans suffering from mental health disorders. The task order falls under the three-year “My Recovery Plan” blanket purchase agreement which has a ceiling of $4.5 million.

The “My Recovery Plan” is an interactive personal treatment planner for veterans to use in conjunction with their care providers. The “My Recovery Plan” application within the “My HealtheVet” Personal Health Record provides a web-based interface to allow veterans with behavioral or mental health concerns to track their progress towards recovery, track mental health symptoms, track changes in their level of functioning, identify how medications may affect them, and make guided changes in their treatment to compliment to the services delivered by VA clinicians.

Under the task order, Harris will provide support services for the “Medication Monitoring and Tracking Module” and the “My Goals Module” through requirements development, testing, and implementation support. “My recovery Plan” gives veterans an invaluable tool to monitor their own mental health regime, develop life goals, and stay in constant contact with their clinicians,” said Jim Traficant, President of Harris Healthcare.
