The Defense Health Services System (DHSS) awarded Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC) a prime contract worth up to $11 million to provide ongoing sustainment, operation, and maintenance of the TRICARE Online (TOL) system, and expand Blue Button capability in support of the Program Executive Office (PEO) Clinical Support Division.

With work to be performed primarily in San Diego, Calif. and Falls Church, Va., the single-award cost-plus fixed-fee (CPFF) contract has a six-month base period of performance, two one-year options, and a one-three month transition period.

“We’re proud to continue our support of the TOL Sustainment team and the Blue Button initiative, enabling patients to have greater control of their own health record and medical history to help improve patient care,” said Steve Comber, SAIC senior vice president and business unit general manager.

Under the contract, SAIC will expand Blue Button capability including radiology results, vital signs, immunizations, outpatient discharge summary, surgical results, insurance, and other patient information to provide civilian partner information, allow reconciliation of active medications, have Personal Health Journaling (PHJ) in collaboration with the Veterans Health Administration, expand TOL to include mobile device access and appointment center, and prescription refill capabilities to incorporate Patient Centered Medical Home (PCMH) requested improvements.
