Consulting firm LMI has won a spot on a massive contract from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services aimed at developing and implementing health care quality measures.
The indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity contract known as MIDS has a ceiling value of $1.6 billion over 10 years. MIDS stands for Measure and Instrument Development and Support.
Under the contract, LMI is responsible for developing and implementing measures for tracking health care quality. The measures are expected to lead to better care, lower costs and help to improve public health overall.
“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 has partnered with CMS for over 20 years. Task orders under the MIDS IDIQ will draw on the company’s newly established advanced analytics capabilities, LMI said.
“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.”
Pat Tamburrino, Jr., vice president of LMI’s Health market, added: “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. This is a strategic win for LMI that will support pursuit of new opportunities within HHS and the federal health management space overall.”
