Healthcare Informatics (HCI)
Managing healthcare information is a uniquely complex, sensitive undertaking with high demands for information availability, confidentiality and accuracy. The Kforce Government Solutions (KGS) Healthcare Informatics (HCI) team has a long track record of providing critical system support to its federal, state and local government clients where “zero defect” software is a mission requirement. HCI service offerings cover a broad range of healthcare technology solutions, including: Software Development, Medical Terminology Services and System and Database Management.
DOD Forensic Toxicology and Drug Testing Laboratory (FTDTL)
KGS provides IT expertise to support the DoD’s Forensic Toxicology Drug Testing Laboratory (FTDTL) program in the areas of sample collection through results reporting. Out work includes implementing the Laboratory Information System (LIMS) used at DoD Drug Testing Laboratories.
KGS innovators modified the FTDTL LIMS system to accommodate the addition of civilian testing at the Ft. Meade Army Laboratory. Considering the unique business rules for the testing of civilian vs. military samples, KGS architected an agile system able to support civilian rules, rather than developing an entirely new system - allowing the lab to use the same proven software while conserving valuable resources.
Quality Assurance and Quality Control are of paramount importance to our customers reliant upon the FTDTL program. A false positive result could not only mean the end of a military career, but may call into question the integrity of the entire DoD drug testing program. With over 130,000 Test Designated Positions (TDPs) within the DoD approved for random drug testing, KGS stands up to the challenge, executing the requirement of “zero error” tolerance in our software. KGS implements well defined management and engineering processes that ensure all activities are performed in a standard and repeatable manner. As a result of our efforts, in the ten years of our support, there have been zero “false positive” results that have been attributed to a software failure.
