9/11/13 - $9.91 Million Federal Contract Awarded to Arch Systems

September 11, 2013 Arch Systems, Baltimore, won a $9,910,671 federal contract called PQRS and eRx Data Assessment, Accuracy and Improper Payments Identification Support from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services' Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, Baltimore. As the PQRS and eRx Incentive Programs mature from “Pay-for-Reporting” to “Pay-for-Performance,” it is crucial that the data collected for these programs is handled appropriately via best practices, verified for accuracy and that measures are taken to prevent and identify improper payments. This becomes even more imperative as various data sources such as Group Practice Reporting Option (GPRO), claims; Electronic Health Records (EHR) and Data Submission Vendors (DSV) continue to feed into the programs which are then calculated, used to provide feedback to providers and, in some instances, posted publicly.

Arch Systems will perform the following tasks:

  • Data Handling Assessment Study
  • Data Accuracy Validation
  • Improper Payments Identification

September 16, 2013 Arch Systems has been selected by both Abt Associates, Inc. and RTI International to be a part of their teams on a huge project, Measure & Instrument Development and Support (MIDS). The purpose of the Measure & Instrument Development and Support (MIDS) Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) Umbrella Statement of Work (USOW) is to develop outcome, process, structural, cost and composite quality measures suitable for endorsement by a consensus endorsement entity and reflective of quality care for healthcare settings, such as psychiatric hospitals, ambulatory care services, physician providers, accountable care organizations, nursing homes, home health agencies, hospice programs, long-term care hospitals, in-patient rehabilitation facilities, PPS-exempt cancer hospitals, acute care hospitals, and ambulatory surgical centers. Its purpose is to also support the collection of data that could be used to trend quality related to patient care for those patients that move across settings, as well as other uses related to cross-setting analysis. Such quality care measures would include any aspect of care that is consistent with the Institute of Medicine’s (IOM) Six Aims of Care (safety, timeliness, efficiency, effectiveness, equitability and patient centeredness), is consistent with the National Quality Strategy (NQS), and is in alignment with CMS’ three Aims (Better Care, Better Health, Lower Costs through Improvement) and Quality Measurement Strategy.
