Tysons, VA, August 29, 2018 — The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has awarded LMI a multibillion-dollar contracting opportunity to support the Measure and Instrument Development and Support (MIDS) IDIQ within the Center for Clinical Standards and Quality (CCSQ). The contract has a ceiling value of $1.6 billion over 10 years.
Under the MIDS IDIQ, LMI will develop, implement, and align healthcare quality measures that fill critical gaps for quality priorities across the entire healthcare system. The measures will lead to better care, lower cost, improved public health, and reduced clinician burdens of care. LMI will support the full lifecycle of the measurement development process.
“We are very excited to be recognized as a MIDS contractor working with CMS on this critically important work,” said Whitney Owen, director of LMI’s Health and Human Services submarket. “We look forward to further defining and implementing quality measures to help ensure healthcare consumers receive the highest quality of care.”
LMI is a long-time partner of CMS with over 20 years of continuous CMS delivery and execution, including support at CCIIO, CM, CMMI, CPI, OFM, and OIT. The task orders under this IDIQ will bring to bear LMI’s newly established Advanced Analytics service line capabilities, focusing on high-quality data collection, visualization, and analytics.
“We put together a strong team of partners that gives us the ability to perform any task our client could need,” said Dr. Darryl Roberts, program manager of the IDIQ and principal consultant at LMI. “Combined, we bring CMS a great reputation with qualifications in measure development, testing, implementation, and maintenance.”
This award allows LMI to expand its footprint within CMS and provide the collection and analyzation of data that could be used to redefine quality related to patient care.
“We continue to invest in the quality measures discipline, expanding our skill set and enabling our team to serve CCSQ on future task orders involving quality measurement development,” said Pat Tamburrino, Jr., vice president of LMI’s Health market. “This is a strategic win for LMI that will support pursuit of new opportunities within HHS and the federal health management space overall.”
