The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services wants information from vendors that can provide and operate a website to facilitate collaboration between CMS contractors, healthcare providers, beneficiaries and taxpayers.
A notice posted Wednesday on FedBizOpps stated CMS seeks a contractor-run website designed with collaboration and communication tools that work to help users find, store, retrieve and share media files.
The agency looks to issue a potential three-year contract to leverage such a website.
CMS wants an online platform that will allow data sharing within CMS’ Quality Improvement Organization program, across care provider groups and between CMS and local healthcare stakeholders such as families, churches, community health centers and others.
The agency expects the contractor to also provide associated software and licenses that will be compatible with commonly used platforms such as Internet Explorer, Navigator, Mozilla, Google Chrome, Opera, AOL and Safari.
The contractor will also provide a range of technical support services, key personnel and training materials, the notice stated.
Interested vendors can submit responses to the RFI until Aug. 17.
