HP Registers Valuable CMS Data Deal Win; Dennis Stolkey Comments

HP Enterprise Services won a task order worth a potential $26 million from the U.S. Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) to maintain its Integrated Data Repository (IDR) and support data quality services to better track Medicare payment data.

According to the firm, “the task order is in support of the agency’s administration of the Medicare and Medicaid electronic health records (EHR) incentive programs created by the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act, which is part of the 2009 economic stimulus law.”

The IDR database delivers different types of data to CMS, including Medicare claims and provider and plan data.

“To administer the Medicare and Medicaid EHR incentive programs, CMS must adopt even higher levels of data integrity to accurately make incentive payments to healthcare providers, ” said Dennis Stolkey, senior vice president, U.S. Public Sector, HP Enterprise Services. “HP will assist CMS in the maintenance, management and integration of large volumes of Medicare data as this important program moves forward.”
