Hewlett-Packard (NYSE: HPQ) Enterprise Services has won a $43 million task order from the U.S. Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services to continue providing information management, maintenance and integration in support of electronic health records incentive programs, the company announced today.

Under the five-year contract, HP will continue to manage data and extract, transform and load the CMS Integrated Data Repository database it has maintained since 2010.

As the agency’s National Level Repository Data Quality contractor, HP provides troubleshooting support for new and existing IDR users.

HP is also expected to combine data sources used to identify fraud waste and abuse while expanding the IDR database, the focal point of the CMS Enterprise Data Warehouse strategy.

“Data integrity is absolutely critical for ensuring the accuracy of payment-grade data,” said Marilyn Crouther, senior vice president and general manager of HP Enterprise Services, U.S. Public Sector.

The IDR database contains more than 16 billion Medicare claims as well as beneficiary, provider and plan data the agency uses to allocate healthcare payments to professionals and hospitals for EHR incentive programs, under the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act.

Crouther added that “HP’s 45-plus years of experience providing support services for Medicare and Medicaid clients, and project leadership during the initial contract period, enables CMS to optimize the IDR database to meet stringent requirements for payment-grade data.”
