Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has selected Northrop Grumman Corp. to develop a National Level Repository for accurate electronic health record incentive payment processing transactions to healthcare professionals, agencies and institutions. The Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) National Level Repository task order was awarded under the Enterprise System Development (ESD) indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity contract.
Northrop Grumman will design, develop, implement and maintain the data repository that supports the administration and incentive payment disbursements of Medicare and Medicaid programs to medical professionals, hospitals and other organizations. "As the United States undergoes a significant transformation of its healthcare system, the National Level Repository will meet a critical need by processing millions of transactions to provide correct and accurate payments to our countless professionals, institutions and state agencies that are serving the medical needs of our citizens," said Amy King, Northrop Grumman's vice president of health information technology programs. "We will leverage our technical expertise and vast experience with CMS to provide a secure and efficient database for extending health benefits."

The task order is valued at approximately $34 million over one year with five and one-half year option periods. Northrop Grumman's teammates include Companion Data Services, Columbia, S.C.; and InnovTech, Ashburn, Va.
