  • (1888PressRelease) November 07, 2011 - The task order falls under the three-year My Recovery Plan blanket purchase agreement, which has a ceiling of $4.5 million.

    Launched nationwide in 2003, My HealtheVet is a free, online personal health record that empowers veterans to become informed partners in their healthcare. The My Recovery Plan application within the My HealtheVet portal provides a web-based interface that allows veterans with behavioral or mental health concerns to track important aspects of their self-care, including medication intake and self-evaluations.

    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. These modules allow veterans suffering from mental health disorders, including post-traumatic stress disorder, traumatic brain injury, and substance abuse, to track and organize all information relevant to their recovery.

    "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, Harris Healthcare. "These new modules within the My HealtheVet portal will improve our veterans' ability to recover from serious mental health disorders."
