For Immediate Release
The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) has added IMPAQ International (IMPAQ) to a 10-year, $1.6B contract vehicle that allows IMPAQ to bid on task orders to support CMS in developing, implementing, and maintaining clinical quality measures designed to assess and manage the quality of health care services at national, community, facility, and provider levels.
The 2018 Measure and Instrument Development and Support (MIDS) Indefinite Deliverable Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contract vehicle builds upon IMPAQ’s work under the 2013 MIDS IDIQ and provides the opportunity to support additional measurement-related areas, including strategy and prioritization, program and policy support, assessment and evaluation, and instrument development and data collection.
“We are excited about being selected as a MIDS IDIQ contract holder,” said Dr. Daniel Weinberg, Vice President, Health. “It gives IMPAQ the opportunity to continue supporting CMS in all aspects of quality measurement and reporting, across the continuum of care.”
The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) is the Federal agency tasked with overseeing a variety of health care programs, including Medicare and Medicaid. It strives to ensure that the American public receives the highest quality of care, consisting of personalized, prevention-oriented, and patient-centered care, based on evidence about the benefits and costs applicable to each individual patient. One way that CMS will carry out its obligation to drive improvement in the health care system is through the development and use of quality measures.
