G2X TAKE: Beating out four other bidders, service-disabled Veteran-owned small business Cognitive Medical Systems has been awarded a new single-award IDIQ in support of the Department of Veterans Affairs. Work is intended to support Knowledge Based Systems (KBS) within the Clinical Informatics & Data Management Office (CIDMO) division and other S&I initiatives within OHI as determined and requested by the Government. The contract was awarded as an SDVOSB set-aside action with the solicitation released using SAM.
- Under this effort: “The contractor shall collaborate between business owners, health standards architects, VA project teams, industry experts, and standards-related organizations to accomplish successful, open-source health standards-based solutions to meet VA’s needs. The contractor shall engage in VA, Government, and industry efforts to advance data and knowledge sharing in support of a seamless Veteran care experience. Whether working collaborative with VA project teams, such as the EHR Modernization (EHRM) Program, or engaging in workgroups to advance standards such as HL7 Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources (FHIR), the contractor shall provide support to advance, consume, implement, and improve industry standards and their usage in support of Veteran care and wellness.” See more here.
- This effort with VA builds on another multiple award IDIQ Cognitive picked up this time last year intended to obtain and/or update various Clinical Decision Support Knowledge Artifacts to improve and enhance the care of Veterans, and it follows a 2019 $25M Veterans Affairs Human Factor Services IDIQ.
- Cognitive Medical Systems, led by President and Co-Founder Douglas Wayne Burke, and CEO and Co-Founder Emory Fry, recently recruited Luke Thomas to be Business Development Director – Veterans Affairs; and they recently announced the promotion of Jaime Gerkin to COO.
- Earlier this summer Science Applications International Corp. (NYSE: SAIC) announced that Halfaker and Associates, LLC, an SAIC company, and Cognitive Medical Systems had acquired CivitasDX, a certified service-disabled, Veteran-owned small business (SDVOSB) joint venture to optimize digital experiences between citizens and their governments. More on that here. That JV was recently awarded a $96M VA IT Legacy Sustainment Applications and DevSecOps support services task.
- Cognitive Medical Systems was named to the list of NXT UP firms poised to make big waves in the Federal sector in 2020 and for years to come.
