Jan 02, 2018 4:42 pm The National Institute of Health (NIH), Clinical Center (CC) intends to award a one- year fixed- price purchase order to Harris QuadraMed Corporation, 12110 Sunset Hills Road, Suite 600, Reston, Virginia on a sole source basis for the annual acuity software license/support fee.
The Nursing Department is the nursing service within the NIH Clinical Center, the nation's largest clinical research hospital. The Nursing Department exists to provide nursing care and research support services for patients participating in clinical research studies conducted by investigators within the Intramural Research Programs at the National Institutes of Health's Bethesda campus. As integral research team members, Clinical Center nurses support the design, coordination, implementation, and dissemination of clinical research by NIH investigators, with a strong focus on patient safety, continuity of care and informed participation.
Due to the fast paced often complex level of patient care required within the Clinical Center and the Institutes supported by Nursing, the need for an intensity software system to effectively track and allocate nursing resources has been identified. There is an emerging need to gain a better understanding of patient care complexity in order to most effectively utilize the Nursing Department's nursing resources in addition to extend budgetary and strategic planning capabilities. In doing so the Nursing will be able to identify and analyze trends in our patient care population and workload that will provide us the opportunity for improved productivity and the highest standard for patient care expectations. The Nursing Department relies heavily on this system for ensuring daily adequate coverage of nursing staff on the patient care units, patient care population and workload that will provide us the opportunity for improved productivity and the highest standard for patient care expectations.
