VA awards QuadraMed for $22M contract
The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) has again awarded QuadraMed an annual task order contract under its existing blanket purchase agreement with a stated value of approximately $21.8 million.

The task order has renewed the term license for QuadraMed's Encoder product suite (EPS) and for related training services for all VA Medical Centers nationwide during the government's 2008 fiscal year, according to the Reston, Va.-based QuadraMed. VA Medical Centers have been licensed to use QuadraMed EPS since 2005.

QuadraMed said its EPS is a VistA-integrated health information management (HIM) and revenue cycle management solution used by the HIM and billing departments of all VA medical centers, including software for inpatient and outpatient coding, compliance, claims editing and revenue cycle workflow.
