D--MEDGATE EHRS GX2

National Aeronautics and Space Administration, Kennedy Space Center | Published July 28, 2015  -  Deadline August 12, 2015
cpvs

NASA/KSC has a requirement for the Medgate GX2 web-based Electronic Health Record System (EHRS) software update and technical support. The required software update and technical support will be restricted to Medgate, Inc. because GX2 is an upgrade of the current GX web-based software being used by NASA to operate the agency-designated EHRS. Until full purchase of GX2 is made for Agency-wide implementation, NASA will be testing GX2 for functionality, applicability, and to identify additional support that may be required during full rollout in FY 16. The Agency has already invested more than $1M for use of the medgate EHRS software application. The EHRS is the successor to previous attempts to standardize the organizational health clinics employee health record systems across the Agency. Failure to test update licenses may result in compromising the Agencys ability to meet Government initiatives to continue to enhance the efficacy of healthcare information management in a timely manner. The EHRS was deployed during 2011 and 2012 as a system for occupational medical employee records and industrial hygiene surveillance across 13 NASA Installations. Use of another software application would not be compatible with the existing Medgate GX system. The GX2 system is merely an upgrade to the existing GX system already in use. Failure to purchase the test, demo and production environment licenses would result in compromising the NASA Office of the Chief Health and Medical Officer (OCHMO)s ability to meet Government initiatives to enhance the efficacy of healthcare information management and associated electronic record security upgrades in a timely manner. Medgate, Inc. is the only provider of the original software licenses developed and has all source code rights to this commercial product. Using alternate software will require extensive redesign and implementation to replace the current system. The Government intends to acquire a commercial item using FAR Part 12. Interested organizations may submit their capabilities and qualifications to perform the effort in writing to the identified point of contact not later than 4:30 p.m. local time on August 12, 2015.

During the battle of Tarawa, and in the immediate aftermath, U.S. dead were buried in a number of expedient battlefield cemeteries around the Atoll. Subsequently, U.S. Navy Combat Engineers significantly restructured the landscape to improve the Japanese airstrip for American use and otherwise convert the island for use by U.S. troops. The work involved moving and altering the battlefield cemeteries. In 1946, U.S. Army Graves Registration Service personnel attempted to locate and exhume all of the battlefield interments; however, because of the construction activities many of the burials were never located. 2.1.1 Privious work on the Tarawa Atoll by the Joint POW/MIA Accounting Command (now DPAA), as well as private research groups, have resulted in the recovery and identification of some of these missing service members; however, many more remains of U.S. military personnel who perished on the Atoll in WWII are buried on the island in locations that currently are unknown. 3.0 REQUIREMENTS. 3.1 Qualified Personnel. 3.1.1 The Contractor shall provide personnel with the necessary experience and expertise to conduct Phase I survey, Phase II archaeological testing, and Phase III recovery work on the islands of the Tarawa Atoll as required under this PWS, from the inception of the operation to its final end state. 3.1.2 The Contractor shall provide personnel who are professionally qualified to perform all activities required under this PWS and who have the requisite experience as set forth herein.
