Small Business scores big, adds $41.2M CMS HQR Support task
G2X TAKE: Beating out 2 other bidders, this SB just added this 3-year Hospital Quality Reporting (HQR) task order under the CMS Agile Delivery to Execute Legislative Endeavors for Quality Related Initiatives (ADELE-QRI) BPA. “The HQR suite of applications and reports has been implemented in support of federally mandated programs that govern the quality of care provided in multiple hospital settings.”
Awardee, Bellese is by no means a new face to CMS, but this does appear to be their first prime contract with revenue tied to it in the Federal sector. As this timeline on their website indicates, this group won their first subcontract at CMS in 2012 to support the Consolidated Renal Operations in a Web-Based Network (CROWN) Program and their first quality-related sub-contract in 2013 to support the End-Stage Renal Disease (ESRD) Quality Incentive Program (QIP), followed by several other sub-contract awards at CMS.
Bellese was one of 6 prime awardees on the ADELE BPA awarded last Fall.
