SoftDev Announces U.S. Census Bureau Contract Award
SoftDev today announced that the U.S. Census Bureau awarded SoftDev a GSA Schedule 70 order for expert Electronic Health Record (EHR) services. “SoftDev is excited to expand our efforts as a federal partner to serve the Census Bureau to provide innovative, cost effective Health IT solutions to meet the Census Bureau’s mission,” said Robin Kaiser, President at SoftDev.
The Census Bureau is expanding its data acquisition, processing and provisioning activities to support multiple existing and emerging projects, including one high-visibility emerging project that expands research using EHRs. The Census Bureau plans to build an infrastructure with the capability to ingest, process, and track EHRs initially from health information exchanges (HIE) and then expand to other organizations (non-HIE) for electronic health information.
Under this award, SoftDev is excited to provide support in understanding the EHRs so as to ensure the Census Bureau’s infrastructure has a logical structure and associations. Working with the HIEs and non-HIEs, SoftDev will gain added expertise and understanding regarding the content, format, and quality of health records. SoftDev will also increase our ability to identify challenges to ingesting health records into one infrastructure while ensuring the guidance and advice we provide includes industry-standard toolkits and compliance to health care standards. The contract is for 3.5 years, including the base and three option periods.
Founded in 1999, SoftDev is a leading healthcare IT company. The firm is an SBA-certified HUBZone and Economically Disadvantaged Woman Owned Small Business (EDWOSB).
