Efiia Lands One-Year DHS Contract for Public Health Information-Sharing Platform

Efiia Lands One-Year DHS Contract for Public Health Information-Sharing Platform

The Department of Homeland Security has awarded Efiia Consulting a contract for its Medical Public Health Information Sharing Environment to enhance the agency's communication with health partners.

Efiia's public health information-sharing platform will support the agency's Counter Weapons of Mass Destruction Office during the coronavirus outbreak. CWMDO is currently incapable of coordinating with the medical community effectively enough to mount a response to the public health crisis, Federal Times reported Thursday.

Efiia's offering is expected to coordinate discussions, conduct data analysis and model emerging pandemics with health professionals. The contract includes a one-year performance period and an undisclosed total value.

CWMDO is responsible for combating chemical, biological, nuclear and health security threats.
