All work regarding this project includes all activities necessary to support the successful completion of all deliverables required within the Department of State Health Services (DSHS) Public Health Application (PHA) services for IT Infrastructure Services and IT System Services for the redesign of the Texas Health Safety Network (TxHSN) system. DSHS had originally planned to update the current Maven based reporting system, however, due to ongoing quality issues with the system, DSHS will need to develop and implement a replacement system that meets new business requirements for the program. The replacement system will allow DSHS to improve reporting and tracking of Health Associated Infections (HAI's) and enhance infection prevention activities that may prevent transmission of communicable diseases such as COVID-19 in healthcare facilities. The new system will also be augmented to track infection control assessment and response activities in response to COVID-19 pandemic or other infection prevention emergencies.
Candidates that do not meet or exceed the minimum stated requirements (skills/experience) will be displayed to customers but may not be chosen for this opportunity.
