The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services is gathering information for collaboration web tool services.
According to a new sources sought notice, the contractor would build a website to support CMS’s quality improvement organization (QIO). The goal is creating more efficient and effective services to deliver to Medicare beneficiaries.
The website solution would focus on technologies for collaboration and communication, including library, storage, retrieval, search, and education. CMS will use these technologies to find, store and share papers, audio and video files, and other media within the QIO program and among provider groups, hospitals, home health agencies, and similar healthcare organizations.
CMS wants a contractor to provide the website under a CMS service contract and have software licenses. The company would also need to acquire licensing or subscriptions for Software as a Service for the QIO collaboration. The SaaS would need to allow for proper processing and to transfer all data.
CMS released the notice Aug. 3. Responses are due by Aug. 17.
