SciHealth's Insight to help manage performance dashboards for Military

Healthcare Facilities worldwide

ATLANTA, Oct. 26 /PRNewswire/ -- The United States Department of Defense (DoD) Military Health System (MHS), awarded a four-year, $1.3 million contract extension to SciHealth, Inc. for clinical and business intelligence solutions. The contract will extend a previous contract through 2011, for implementation of SciHealth's solutions across all Service branches.

The new MHS contract will continue to support the implementation of MHS Insight, throughout more than 70 hospitals and 400 clinics around the world. Serving over 9 million Americans -- Active Duty and Reserve Component service members; military families; retirees, survivors and their families -- the MHS has more than 150,000 medical personnel, both military and civilian, providing medical services in combat theaters and in facilities worldwide.

"MHS Insight is a unique tool for the MHS," says Justin Sweetman of SciHealth. "Insight provides a unique capability for the field and headquarters by providing a top-down, bottom-up and cross-service communication channel for achieving strategic and tactical goals."

In implementing MHS Insight, the DoD is taking one more step in the MHS Strategic Plan to develop system-wide initiatives, such as balanced scorecards, to result in achieving their goals of objective healthcare measurement and oversight. In using Insight, the MHS will be better equipped to translate healthcare strategy into terms that can be easily understood, communicated and acted upon, closer to the point of care.

"MHS uses a Balanced Scorecard Methodology, and is transforming to a performance based environment focusing on results. Insight makes this possible. We want the widest dissemination and full visibility of all of our initiatives and our measures." - Lt. Cmdr. Lisa Lewis, DoD Health Policy Analyst.
