Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan has released a request for quotation for two pilot implementations of the U.S. Veterans Administration's VistA in its public health system.

A key goal of the pilots is to determine the feasibility of leveraging this open source solution to support continuous health quality improvement, and to control and reduce costs, it says.

Vendors interested in participating in this initiative may obtain a copy of the RFQ by sending an e-mail to: hmis@rhc.jo, with the subject line “RFQ Document Request – VistA Pilot.” The body of the e-mail should state the name of the vendor, contact person, and telephone number. The deadline for submitting a Letter of Intent to Bid is March 31. The deadline for responding to the RFQ is April 12.
