RFP: Cayman Islands Enterprise Health Information System

The Health Services Authority of the Cayman Islands is engaging in the selection of a core vendor to supply an Enterprise Healthcare Information System. HSA defines a “core vendor” as an extension of its senior leadership who shares the same vision and values to constantly evolve and improve clinical, financial, and administrative operations.  Qualified vendors are encouraged to respond with their proposal no later than noon, 23 September 2011. 

At present, the core enterprise applications are provided by the Cerner Corporation.  The contract for those services expires in June 2013.  The RFP begins a re-compete process for the award of that contract. The intent is to evaluate other vendors and products, and determine if it is in the best interests of the Cayman Islands to remain in partnership with Cerner. Cerner will be invited to participate in this re-compete. 

The RFP can be downloaded from the Central Tenders web site here.
