VA awards $258M telehealth contract to 1Vision

In a contract that includes one base year and four one-year option periods with a $258 million price tag, the Department of Veterans Affairs selected 1Vision to deliver home telehealth care to veterans.

To fulfill the agreement, 1Vision partnered with AMC Health, a virtual care and remote patient monitoring provider, to leverage AMC's clinical CareConsole platform. This will allow veterans to automatically send information — such as vital sign measurements including weight, blood pressure, blood glucose levels or condition-specific information — directly to the platform via Bluetooth-enabled devices.

The Veterans Health Administration's Home Telehealth Program depends on commercial contractors' platforms classified by the VA as Medical Device Data Systems. These products allow veterans to promote self-management and increase their access to care. VA studies have shown that MDDS systems can improve care, reduce emergency department visits, and promote higher levels of patient and clinician satisfaction.

1Vision, a subsidiary of HMS Technologies, is a Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business.

"1Vision … was formed with the sole vision of better serving our nation's Veterans through a wider breadth of technologies," said Bill Kirkpatrick, CEO of HMS Technologies and managing director of 1Vision. "As a service-disabled veteran myself, I firmly believe this contract is a vital step to make healthcare treatment for our nation's heroes more efficient and accessible. We are honored to be part of this contract and are pleased that the VA has awarded a Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Business this opportunity to help provide quality products and services to veterans."
