MELBOURNE, Fla., Nov. 2 (UPI) -- The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs has given the Harris Corp. a task order for support services in tracking of medication and treatment for veterans.

The task order falls under the three-year My Recovery Plan blanket purchase agreement, which has a ceiling of $4.5 million and is specifically aimed for veterans suffering mental health disorders.

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

Launched in 2003, My HealtheVet is a free, online personal health record that enables veterans to become informed partners in their healthcare. The My Recovery Plan application within the My HealtheVet portal provides an Internet 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.
