WASHINGTON, Oct. 28, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Coforma has been awarded a one-year task order with the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) to complete a COVID-19 Patient Manager Minimum Viable Product (MVP) tool and pilot rollout to key facilities. The task, valued at $5M, was awarded as a Service-Disabled Veteran Owned Small Business (SDVOSB) set-aside contract on the VA Customer Experience, DevOps, Agile Releases (CEDAR) IDIQ.

Clinicians at the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) medical centers who are responsible for treating patients with COVID-19 make treatment decisions based on current Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines, location-specific laws and executive orders, International Classification of Diseases (ICD)-10 codes, treatment information, and testing information. The Office of Health Informatics (OHI) aims to assist Veterans Health Administration (VHA) clinicians by offering a COVID-19 decision support tool (Patient Manager) that will provide an evidence-based initial assessment for a patient’s treatment driven by the latest clinical guidelines.
