Guidehouse has been awarded a prime role on Accelerating VA Innovation and Learning, a Department of Veterans Affairs initiative focused on designing, testing and scaling health care innovations to improve veteran care.
The contract is a multiyear indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity $650 million project.
“Guidehouse is honored to have the opportunity to work with VA to develop innovations that will advance care and improve the lives of our nation’s Veterans and their caregivers,” said Alicia Harkness, Guidehouse partner and health segment leader.
As part of the contract, Guidehouse won four of five key task orders to help VA develop a digital twin solution to optimize its health care construction, design and planning processes; and to pilot innovative payment models to support chronic conditions management, physical therapy care coordination and in-home care delivery.
“This effort aligns our powerful combination of innovative digital and data transformation, commercial healthcare, and public health expertise with our collective partner network, the type of collaboration and synergy that embodies why Guidehouse exists,” Harkness said.
AVAIL will also support the work of the Veterans Health Administration and the Office of Healthcare Innovation and Learning as they ensure solutions are of value for VHA clinicians, administrators, caregivers, veterans and their families.
