CNSI was named the Government Contracting Company of the Year by the Maryland Tech Council, Maryland’s largest technology trade association. CNSI accepted the award at the May 17 MTC Industry Awards Celebration in College Park, Maryland.
“CNSI became an industry disrupter nearly 15 years ago when we launched the nation’s first web-centric Medicaid Management Information System, transforming the health IT industry,” said Adnan Ahmed, co-president of CNSI. “Keeping true to our core value of innovation, CNSI has continued to make positive industry strides over the past year, and we’re thrilled to be recognized by the Maryland Tech Council.”
The MTC Industry Awards recognize the best in innovation and reflect the evolution in Maryland over the last 30 years. CNSI was recognized for its innovative and inspirational work in the health care industry. Specifically, CNSI was named as the Government Contracting Company of the Year based on the following qualifications:
- Achieved measurable success as evidenced by growth in revenue and profitability either through organic growth or acquisition
- Developed critical expertise in its service to the government
- Improved the level of service or cut costs of either the government or a prime contractor
- Demonstrated success in partnering with other contracting firms in the region
In 2017, CNSI made headlines for being the first company to work across state and federal lines to launch a CDC-backed cause of death mobile app to help states with disease surveillance, a critical tool during major outbreaks. The company also took on the opioid epidemic by developing a solution with the state of Michigan that uses predictive analytics and artificial intelligence to identify characteristics and patterns of Medicaid recipients who may be at risk for opioid abuse.
“CNSI has been a longtime partner of the state and federal government, developing cutting-edge solutions that increase efficiency and accuracy while also cutting costs,” Ahmed said. “We are honored to have our work recognized and look forward to continuing to deliver innovative technologies to public sector healthcare for years to come.”
