The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) intends to issue a competitive task order against an Indefinite Delivery Indefinite Quantity Task Order with the National Resource Center Domain 2 master contract holders. It is anticipated that AHRQ will award 1 task order.

The goal of this task order is to use electronic clinical data from the Indian Health Service (IHS) national health information system (RPMS - Resource and Patient Management System) to enhance the capacity to electronically measure quality of care consistent with national HIT standards and conduct comparative effectiveness research that will identify care delivery models within the Indian/Tribal and Urban systems that result in improved health outcomes.
