Innovet Health is proud to announce that it has been awarded a Prime single-vendor Data Science-as-a-Service (DSaaS) Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity Contract (IDIQ) contract with the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) for the National Artificial Intelligence Institute (NAII). This IDIQ contract has five years of period of performance with one base year and four (4) option periods of twelve (12) months each.

Founded in 2019, NAII’s mission is to develop Artificial Intelligence research, policy and development capabilities in VA to support Veterans, their families, survivors, and caregivers. The fundamental scope of the NAII DSaaS contract is to provide data science support and subject matter expertise including artificial intelligence, data science, machine learning and data analysis on NAII projects and VHA research priorities.

InnoVet Health, a SDVOSB, specializes in Artificial Intelligence (AI) and business intelligence (BI) work at VA Office of Connected Care and Clinical Informatics and Data Management Office (CIDMO). In 2022, InnoVet’s AI/ML capabilities were part of a winning team that was awarded the VA’s Accelerating VA Innovation and Learning (AVAIL) IDIQ.

Jim Malpass, Director of Data Analytics at InnoVet Health, says:

“InnoVet Health is honored to have been selected by the VA NAII for this important mission. We understand the critical role that AI can play in improving the delivery of healthcare services and bringing AI research and development at the forefront for the Veterans health. We are committed to working closely with the NAII in delivering innovative solutions to enhance the care outcomes for Veterans.”

With this win, we are continuously forward thinking in our endeavors to modernize and innovate Health IT products and services at VA. Next, we are planning on going after VA T4NG2 IDIQ contract and actively building a team of diverse, comprehensive selective systems integrators to join us, so ifyou are interested, please send us a message. We look forward to connecting!
