Reported cases of congenital syphilis in the United States are increasing at an alarming rate. Screening for syphilis during pregnancy is a tool that can help reduce the number of reported cases. However, both recommendations and requirements for screening for syphilis during pregnancy are not uniform across states or healthcare delivery systems.
NACCHO is seeking a consultant to begin the creation of a draft quality measure for congenital syphilis screening that can be used to promote adoption by the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) as a Healthcare Effectiveness, Data, and Information Set (HEDIS) measure.
Funds will be awarded through a fixed-price contract, in which contractors are reimbursed for completion of deliverables outlined in the agreement. The maximum available funding for this contract is $150,000 and all activities must be completed by 7/31/24.
