Solicitation #: 34349-53122
“The purpose of this RFP is to obtain expert contractor services to support the Tennessee Department of Health’s Surveillance Systems and Informatics (SSI) Program complete federal grant activities with a focus in Public Health Level Seven (HL7) international standards for transfer of clinical and administrative data between software applications used by various healthcare providers.
The SSI Program at the Tennessee Department of Health (TDH) coordinates projects and system needs for the Communicable and Environmental Diseases and Emergency Preparedness Division. In this role, SSI is the main point of contact for laboratories and facilities interested in submitting reportable disease data electronically, specifically Electronic Laboratory Reports (ELR) and Electronic Case Reports (eCR). Partners are onboarded via HL7 reporting directly with TDH in the case of ELR and through the Association of Public Health Laboratories (APHL) Informatics Messaging System (AIMS) for ELR and eCR. These data are then reviewed for onboarding and routed for compatibility with reporting requirements and content review. Production feeds are monitored for data quality, content, and compatibility in an ongoing manner using relatively manual and inefficient processes. The State is interested in expert services, that may or may not include software, that will move the State to more digital and efficient processes.”
