As part of the task order, CGI Federal, based in Fairfax, Va., will develop software and operational support services for the government's Provider Enrollment, Chain and Ownership System, or PECOS, according to a news release from the company.
The PECOS system is used in the CMS' program integrity initiatives and also will be used to verify provider eligibility for health IT incentive payments.
"CMS is on the leading edge of U.S. healthcare information technology initiatives," CGI Federal President George Schindler said in the release. "Their efforts to streamline enrollment practices have increased care options for Medicare's 47 million beneficiaries. We are pleased to continue to bring our specialized knowledge of provider-facing applications to our long-term partnership with CMS."
