General Dynamics Information Technology has won a spot on a massive billion-dollar contract with the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Service to compete for work dealing with federal health care quality management.
The indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity Measure and Instrument contract, awarded by the agency’s Center for Clinical Standards and Quality, has an estimated value of $1.6 billion and includes a base period of five years with an additional 5-year option period.
Under the deal, GDIT will support CMS with developing quality measures for the federal health care system. These include measures relating to clinical quality of care, care coordination, population and community health, safety, person and caregiver-centered experience and outcomes and efficiency and cost reduction.
“GDIT will continue our broader partnership with CMS and our five-year legacy supporting the MIDS initiative,” said Vice President Kamal Narang, head of GDIT’s Health Sector. “GDIT’s next-generation technology is making dramatic leaps in quality analysis and cost-saving efficiencies. These and other tools will help CMS in their important mission of providing quality health care and resources.”
