Deltek Pulse: Health and human services month in review, September 2015
The number of health and human services (HHS) solicitations held steady in September compared to most of the summer, but was considerably lower than June numbers. This makes sense since June marked the end of the fiscal year for the majority of states. Most September bids for HHS related to professional services, health services, and medical/scientific equipment, followed by social services and information technology.
Major solicitation releases in September can be broken down into the following areas:
Medicaid management information systems (MMIS)
- The Texas Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC) released the final Texas MMIS Takeover RFP. HHSC is seeking a qualified contractor to take over the operation of the Texas TMMIS and performance of claims administrator functions that support Texas’ medical benefit programs. The finalized RFP follows the draft RFP that was released in May 2015. Proposals are due on December 11.
- The Indiana Department of Administration (IDOA) released a request for service (RFS) for Planning Assistance/RFP Development for Electronic Vital Events Registry System and Implementation. Proposals are due October 28.
- The Texas Health and Human Services Commission released an RFP for a Modified Commercial Off-The-Shelf Product for Vital Events Registration System. Proposals are due by November 5.
- The Nebraska Department of Administrative Services released an RFP for Long-Term Care Pharmacy Management Software for Nebraska Veterans Homes. The department is also seeking a Long-Term Electronic Health Record system. Proposals for both projects are due by November 9.
All-player claims databases (APCDs)
- The Washington State Health Care Authority (HCA) released a request for applications (RFA) for a lead organization to convene payers around a Multi-Payer Data Aggregation Solution. The RFA is to implement the greater Washington multi-payer payment redesign strategy, also known as Model Test 4, as described in the Healthier Washington Grant. Applications are due by October 14.
