Developing Mobile Health Solutions for Military Personnel and Their Families
Tetra Tech is leading the innovation and modernization of mobile health apps and websites serving more than 9 million military personnel and their families.
Tetra Tech supports the U.S. Defense Health Agency’s (DHA) Military Health System (MHS)—one of America’s largest and most complex health care institutions—by implementing advanced technology capabilities for the successful delivery of quality health services to military personnel and health care providers and combating infectious disease.
The T2 Mood Tracker, developed by Tetra Tech personnel, received first place in the Apps4Army competition’s General Wellness category.
Tetra Tech manages DHA’s largest health-related websites, TRICARE.mil and Health.mil, and a portfolio of health-related mobile apps that provide health support, training, and news for DHA’s 9.6 million active duty members, retired military personnel, and their families. Tetra Tech led the consolidation of more than 170 public facing DHA websites, completely overhauling the Health.mil user interface and experience (UI/UX). This led to a 2,500 percent increase in site visits in the first year and a half after release.
By leveraging our Tetra Tech Delta technology expertise, Tetra Tech continues to innovate and improve MHS mobile apps. Our agile mobile app development personnel have delivered award-winning, health-related apps, such as T2 Mood Tracker and Tactical Breather, for Health.mil’s Connected Health branch, supporting their mission to improve health and readiness through technology. Tetra Tech is working with the MHS to incorporate leading edge technologies like virtual reality, blockchain, and artificial intelligence into the next generation of mobile apps.
