Base Technologies, Inc. Awarded Defense Health Information Management Systems Contract to Support In-Theater Deployed Tele-Radiology Systems

MCLEAN, VA--(Marketwire - November 21, 2008) - Base Technologies, Inc. of McLean, Virginia announced today, the award of the Deployed Tele-Radiology System (DTRS) in-Theater Operations and Sustainment contract by the Defense Health Information Management Systems (DHIMS) Program Office. Base Technologies has teamed with Nexsys Electronics, Inc., dba Medweb to provide full time, In-Theater systems support services to enhance the quality and timeliness of support for users of their currently deployed PACS and Tele-Radiology System, MedWeb™. Medweb™ allows Radiologists to view electronically stored images from any location, regardless of patient location.

Medweb™ is deployed in the Military Treatment Facilities (MTFs) in Kuwait, Afghanistan and Iraq, as well as Lanstuhl, Germany, and other MTFs in the United States. Current support is provided remotely from the U.S. and thus is subject to communication disruptions, time-zone differences, and lack of hands on contact with users and obsolescence of user equipment. The scope of this award is to provide user support to in-theater (local) systems administrators, through training and assistance associated with replacement of new hardware, the latter of which is being provided under separate contract activities.

Mr. Gary Nakamoto, CEO of Base Technologies, Inc. said: "We are proud to support DHIMS in providing outstanding care to our Wounded Warriors in Iraq, Afghanistan, and Kuwait."

The focus of this order is to provide enhanced sustainment capability and services to support the current capability until a successor system is developed and fielded. The Base Technologies/Medweb Team will coordinate and manage a rotational staff to provide installation, systems administration, and Tier 0 and Tier I support to deployed forces in Theater (Iraq, Kuwait and Afghanistan).
