Modernization initiatives that create interconnected data ecosystems to facilitate public health decision making and mission response

CMS Application Programming Interface (API) Gateway – CGI was chosen in 2021 to lead a first-of-its-scale implementation at the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, focused on creating a streamlined, data-sharing solution that enhances the agency’s ability to detect and combat fraud, waste and abuse in the Medicare and Medicaid programs.

CMS Provider Enrollment, Chain and Ownership Systems (PECOS) – In 2008, CGI Federal began implementing PECOS, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services’ “one-stop-shop” platform for Medicaid enrollment for all providers and suppliers. In 2021, CGI was again chosen to redesign and modernize the system, dubbed “PECOS 2.0.”

HHS Opioid Exchange Pilot - CGI designed the CONNECT Empowering Opioid Exchange pilot program in 2017 for the Department of Health and Human Services, allowing the agency to identify potential misuse of prescription drugs by linking federally managed patient records with state prescription data records.

Financial management capabilities that increase operational efficiency and speed of mission

VA Financial Management Business Transformation (FMBT) - In 2017, the Department of Veterans Affairs launched the FMBT program, engaging CGI as the systems integrator to implement our Momentum Integrated Financial and Acquisitions Management System, iFAMS. iFAMS will replace VA’s 30-year-old mainframe-based financial management system, as well as the legacy contract writing system. Two successful “go-lives” were executed in 2021 and 2022.

CMS Open Payments - CGI built and supports the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services’ “Open Payments” national physician transparency program, which allows citizens to gain insight into financial transactions between providers and pharmaceutical, biologic and medical device manufacturers.

Cybersecurity services and solutions that protect sensitive health information

Office of the National Coordinator’s (ONC) CONNECT Platform – In 2010, CGI partnered with U.S. Federal Health Architecture (FHA) to develop and support the CONNECT platform, the government’s most widely adopted open source gateway for the secure exchange of health information. Despite transitioning to the private sector in 2019, CGI has continued supporting the CONNECT platform, as it remains one of the most widely used interoperability mechanisms to connect to the eHealth Exchange.
