CGI has won a potential six-year, $48.7 million contract to help state of New York’s mental health office implement new technology designed to help manage patient records electronically.
The agency aims for the electronic medical records system to remove duplicate files and facilitate information exchange between health and human service departments, CGI said Wednesday.
Michael Keating, a CGI senior vice president and New York account executive, said the EMR platform is designed to help the agency pursue new care models, develop new disease classification coding systems and comply with performance measures and disease prevention guidelines.
According to the company, the agency’s system will be based on a software architecture used by the Department of Veterans Affairs that is built to integrate outpatient and inpatient EHRs and administrative support tools.
DSS Inc. and NTT Data will work with CGI to carry out the project.
