$25M Veterans Affairs Human Factor Services IDIQ awarded

G2X TAKE: Beating out 8 other bidders, three awardees to include Cognitive Medical Systems, a physician-led Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business who specializes in managing and utilizing health data throughout its life cycle to give customers the ability to measurably improve Healthcare delivery while reducing administrative costs, just scored this 5-year multiple award IDIQ. The work under the award will be to provide human factors engineering support services to the VA Human Factors Engineering (HFE) directorate in support of their mission to increase awareness and application of human factors principles, improving performance and safety of VA Health Information Systems (HIS) by optimizing the end-user experience. This multiple-award IDIQ was competed as an SDVOSB set-aside. The full solicitation, which was posted to FBO, can be found here. The two other known awardees are included below. 

Why so many bids? A focus for this effort will be to provide human factors engineering support to a range of projects and programs listed below, as well as new initiatives that can and will emerge:

  1. Legacy VistA/CPRS: VA’s current electronic health record (EHR) system. Includes the Joint Legacy  Viewer (JLV) and CPRS support on national releases.
  2. Electronic Health Record Modernization (EHRM)
  3. Connected Care: tools for Veterans, family caregivers, and clinicians provided through a number of modalities including smartphones, tablets, kiosks and websites. My HealtheVet, Web and Mobile  Solutions, and Telehealth are part of this suite.
  4. Community Care: refers eligible Veterans for care in the community, collecting data about the care provided and patient outcomes achieved, and paying for the care.
  5. VA Innovation Office
  6. Clinical Informatics and Data Management Office (CIDMO)
  7. Other VA administrations and program offices: HFE conducts ad hoc reviews of websites,  commercial software products and a variety of other systems, including support for Veteran Benefits  Administration (VBA), Office of Information and Technology (OI&T/OIT), Veterans Experience Office  (VEO) and Digital Service at VA (DSVA).

Clearly this is a big win for the team led by Emory Fry, MD, CEO/Cofounder and Doug Burke, President/CoFounder, as the types of perspective and insight that this group can and will gain on this type of a contract, coupled with group’s existing role as a longtime partner to Veterans Affairs and many T4NG Primes, only further ensures Cognitive and Stanton Denman, the Sales Director for Cognitive, will remain a popular teaming call to make. 

Update: The two other known awardees for this IDIQ include SDVOSB, Ben Allegretti Consulting (BAC) and EDWO 8(a) and SDVOSB, Visionary Consulting Partners, LLC (Visionary)
