Cognosante Awarded New Community Care Referrals and Authorizations (CCR&A) Contract
Date:10/8/2019

Cognosante has been awarded a contract to continue providing development and support services for the Department of Veterans Affairs Community Care Referrals and Authorizations program. The new task order will allow Cognosante to continue its implementation of the VA’s Health Share Referral Manager (HSRM), an enterprise-wide system used by community care staff to generate referrals and authorizations for Veterans receiving care in the community. The award carries a total estimated value of $149 million. It includes one base year with two option years.

This contract award reflects Cognosante’s strategic focus on delivering solutions that optimize the quality of healthcare to the Veteran community. “By streamlining and standardizing community referrals, the VA is poised to transform the quality of care for our nation’s Veterans. Cognosante is proud to partner with the VA on the next phase of this initiative,” says James Gordon, President of Cognosante.

This latest award also builds on Cognosante’s expertise in promoting interoperability with community care providers. “As an Amazon Web Services Network Partner, Cognosante is uniquely positioned to help the VA enhance its ability to share health data in a secure way,” said Steve Schliesman, General Manager of Cognosante’s Military and Veterans Health Business Unit.

HSRM is an integral component of the community care information technology (IT) architecture that allows Veterans to receive care from community providers. It will allow the VA to transition from a largely manual referral process to a standardized solution that will improve the timeliness of referrals, reduce administrative burden, and facilitate communication between facility community care staff and community providers. “Foundational to our Veterans receiving reliable community care, referrals and authorizations are the first steps toward the VA’s vision of a fully integrated commercial health environment,” said Schliesman. “Cognosante is honored to continue its service in support of this critical capability.”
