Telligen, a leading provider of health management solutions, was selected by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) as one of 58 organizations that will carry out $25 billion in projects related to healthcare quality measurement over the next decade. The Network of Quality Improvement and Innovation Contractors (NQIIC) award allows Telligen to bid on a CMS contract vehicle to support data-driven healthcare quality improvement efforts across care settings. The NQIIC award covers the Quality Innovation Network-Quality Improvement Organization (QIN-QIO) work Telligen is currently doing.
“This important win affords us the opportunity to continue working side-by-side with CMS on quality measurement projects that are setting the course for the future of healthcare delivery,” says Teresa Titus-Howard, Vice President of Federal Health Management.
The NQIIC award falls under the Indefinite-Delivery/Indefinite-Quantity (IDIQ) contract, which supports the full spectrum of quality improvement work that is in operation under the current various networks designed to maximum impact healthcare value for taxpayers. This covers several healthcare topic areas including behavioral health, patient safety, care coordination, nursing homes and long-term care, chronic disease self-management and public health, according to the statement of work.
NQIIC awardees are positioned to reach a broad spectrum of healthcare providers, beneficiaries and local communities with the key goals being:
- To empower patients and doctors to make decisions about their healthcare;
- To support innovative approaches to improve quality, accessibility, and affordability;
- To improve the CMS customer experience.
- The NQIIC includes broad-ranged, overarching tasks such as health information technology, direct technical assistance, recruitment, community coalitions, learning and action networks, and continuous improvement, measurement, data and reporting such as data collection and analytics.
As the current QIN-QIO for Colorado, Illinois and Iowa, Telligen is well-positioned to bid on this valuable work, allowing them to continue to serve as change agents to improve healthcare quality. With more than 45 years of experience improving outcomes and managing costs for federal clients, Telligen brings together clinical, analytical and technical expertise to improve the quality and cost-effectiveness of healthcare.
