Award Description: The purpose of this Statement of Work is to obtain assistance in developing strategies and plans for CMS’ HITECH systems requirements in support of the systems development projects required for CMS’ HITECH implementation. The Contractor shall complete the requirements and systems engineering activities for the capabilities needed for the CMS HITECH implementation. At the direction of the GTL, the Contractor shall gather the business, user, functional, and nonfunctional requirements (as is feasible during the period of performance) needed for this implementation. Following the direction within the latest version of The CMS Requirements Writer’s Guide the Contractor shall document these requirements, as well as their attendant use cases (also known as scenarios) where applicable. These use cases shall describe the steps a user takes to satisfy a user requirement and shall serve as a convenient structure around which to organize requirements. The requirements management tool at CMS is the Dynamic Object Oriented Requirements System (DOORS). CMS recommends its use for storing and managing requirements. The Contractor shall deliver the final HITECH requirements baseline in DOORS. The Contractor shall establish all applicable links between requirements. Microsoft Excel can produce importable formats, if the spreadsheet is saved as a comma delimited file. Microsoft Word can produce importable formats, if appropriate heading styles are used. The systems engineering involves planning and architecting to identify where existing CMS systems can be reused or leveraged to implement HITECH as well as describing new system capabilities needed. The Contractor shall develop a high-level technical design document that incorporates the strategies and planning topics in this section. The Contractor shall develop a web authentication strategy for granting providers access to necessary CMS systems. This web authentication strategy will prove the identity of providers and issue system credentials for enrolling in the incentive program to grant access to the network. The Contractor shall develop a gap analysis between current authentication solutions and HITECH requirements. The Contractor shall also develop an analysis of a high-level web authentication approach. The Contractor shall develop a strategy and system architecture for enrolling providers in the incentive program and tracking enrollments on an ongoing basis. This solution will enable the sharing of this tracked data among all States and between States and CMS to ensure the non-duplication of incentive payments to providers across the Medicare and Medicaid programs. The Contractor shall develop a gap analysis between current provider enrollment systems and HITECH requirements. The Contractor shall also develop a high level design for a HITECH enrollment and participation solution. Finally, the Contractor shall develop a strategy for CMS’ implementation of the incentive payment requirements under HITECH. This solution will enable CMS to collect the relevant meaningful use measures from providers. Once CMS collects the measures, it must analyze the measures to make payment determinations based on the meaningful use criteria. After payment determination, CMS must distribute incentive payments to the providers that demonstrate meaningful use. The Contractor shall develop a gap analysis between the current CMS incentive payment solutions and HITECH requirements. The Contractor shall also develop a high level design for a HITECH incentive payment solution.
Project Description: Perfomed high level business analysis for determining requirements for a statement of work (SOW).
Jobs Summary: There were three (3) IT full time consulting positions that were retained from Recovery Act funding of this project. These positions are for subject matter specialists supporting CMS that are performing high level business analysis for determining the requirements for a statement of work (SOW). The postions provide high-level subject matter proficiency for work as described in the task. They also provide advance technology knowledge and anaylsis of highly specialilzed applications and operational environmental, high-level functional systems analysis, design, integration, documentation, training, and implementation advice on complex problems that require expert knowledge of the subject matter for effective implementation.
