Abt Wins Award to Help Manage Health Care Costs for CMS and Patients
Rockville, Md. – A new contract with the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) will give Abt the opportunity to continue addressing the cost and quality of health care through activities ranging from program technical assistance and implementation to evaluation.
As one of the awardees for CMS’ Research, Measurement, Assessment, Design, and Analysis (RMADA2) master contract, Abt will be able to bid on task orders to support the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Innovation by developing, implementing and evaluating new health care delivery and payment models. The task orders under the five year RMADA2 master contract have a combined $5 billion dollar ceiling value.
“RMADA2 brings more of Abt’s expertise to CMS,” said Christopher Spera, Ph.D., division vice president, health and environment. “From evaluation to implementation, we’ll help CMS use data to support decision-making in pursuit of new ways to lower costs and improve Americans’ health care.”
