This Request for Proposals (RFP) is issued by the Fund for Public Health in New York City (FPHNYC), on behalf of the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (DOHMH), to solicit proposals to establish an Agency Master Patient Index Solution. 

The Agency Master Patient Index Solution includes the application software, as well as the provision of all build and implementation resources to deliver an extensible, source agnostic MPI solution as a centralized patient repository of all patients contained in DOHMH contributing data sources. 

For the scope of this RFP, Electronic Clinical Laboratory Systems (ECLRS) and Electronic Case Report (eCR) data sources are prioritized. Programs across the agency utilize various matching software tools to support operational and research needs defined by the program. The source agnostic MPI solution will have the ability to integrate external modular matching software into the stack or provide a matching process that can honor match decisions from outside matching solutions through matching logic.

The agency is looking forward to implementing the Agency Master Patient Index in a fully managed, cloud hosted, environment to foster modernization of the technical infrastructure that is scalable, flexible and meets federal standards on health interoperability Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources (FHIR R4.0) for the Master Patient Index solution and API. 

A DOHMH copy of patient identifier assignments or cross walk table will be implemented and maintained with automated synchronization with MPI environment for back-end accessibility.

RFP DESCRIPTION

This Request for Proposals (RFP) is issued by the Fund for Public Health in New York City (FPHNYC), on behalf of the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (DOHMH), to solicit proposals for professional services to develop a replacement solution for DOHMH developed Electronic Disease Reporting Infrastructure application (EDRI).

The development of the Electronic Disease Reporting Infrastructure includes the provision of all design, build and implementation resources to replace the current state system, as well as retain and expand the data.  Programming language utilized is C # on a .NET platform.  DOHMH utilizes Selenium Web/GUI open-source framework that automates the testing of web applications across different browsers and platforms. Selenium is a suite of tools that meet different testing needs, using various programming languages like Java, C#, Python, etc. This is an Open-Source tool, built on Java/Eclipse. DOHMH preferred tool for code version control is GitHub enterprise and may be used under the DOHMH account.

In its current state, DDC’s Electronic Disease Reporting Infrastructure (EDRI) works to transform disparate data sources into a common schema, classify diseases, perform record matching and enrichment, and standardize and route data to disease registries for public health action. DOHMH is seeking an experienced vendor to work with DOHMH informatics, surveillance, and information technology staff to implement a new tool to be hosted and maintained by DOHMH to perform these functions as well as accommodate upcoming surveillance needs that require high volumes of messages and support for document standards such as the HL7 CDA R2 for electronic case reporting and Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources (FHIR) integrations with DOHMH contributing data sources.
