TISTA has been asked to modernize and redesign the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS) Quality Improvement and Evaluation System (QIES) Technical Support Office web site. QIES is a key source of quality data for Medicare, Medicaid and Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments (CLIA). The QIES systems collect and validate data on provider and beneficiary outcomes of care and performance. Approximately 3,500,000 clinical assessments are received each month from healthcare providers nationwide, and approximately 278,000,000 clinical assessments are maintained in the QIES national data repository. TISTA is responsible for the design and rollout of a technical support web portal supporting these critical systems.
