The Defense Health Agency issued a new solicitation for a five-year, $70 million set-aside contract to standardize functionality of clinical workflows at each military treatment facility.
The indefinite-delivery indefinite-quantity, single-award contract is set aside for small businesses.
The work will encompass the entire development lifecycle, such as planning and implementation to analysis and eventual closure, of workflow solutions across the enterprise.
The company will support DHA in creating, editing and performing services on clinical workflows, which include operational, administrative, and clinical processes through which a piece of work passes from beginning to completion. The company will aid DHA with its Military Health Systems Next Generation Workflow Services to design and integrate IT systems to a clinical workflow of its Military Health Systems.
DHA considers the workflow form as technically simple. However, the agency’s challenge is in standardizing clinical content of the form while balancing numerous physicians’ needs.
To make it successful, DHA wants proper training of the workflows, as well as analysis of metrics related to internal process management and even patient outcomes.
DHA released a request for proposal Dec. 15. Responses are due by Jan. 19.
