SIN 132-56 is a streamlined way for the Government to find your Services.
By the end of 2017, the Health IT government marketplace will be valued at $31.3 billion. This 7.4 % growth subsequently means that there is an increase in customer requests for Health IT Solutions. In June of 2016, the General Services Administration (GSA) rolled out a new addition to Schedule 70s new Health IT Special Item Number (SIN) 132-56. Here’s what you need to know about this SIN, its benefits and selling on this schedule. Since the introduction of the new SIN, 197 contractors have been added to this category.
A few of the Health IT SIN services include:
Connected Health Services
Services to assist in electronic health records
Health information exchanges and management
The GSA’s decision to add the new SIN was driven by the rapid growth of healthcare markets within the federal space.
The Health IT marketplace has now become felicitous, after the recent calls for reform in military and civilian healthcare. While IT services exist within other SINs, the growing healthcare industry and its customers gain more from its own specialized IT SIN.
The Defense Health Agency allowed the GSA to become the singular procurement solutions for Health IT. The Veterans Health Administration refers vendors to the Schedule 70 SIN for their Health IT needs as well. The SIN provides Federal, State and Local Agencies with streamlined and cost-effective procurement of Health IT services.
Overall this categorized SIN will allow for easy find research and easy buy solutions for agencies to obtain services from pre-qualified Health IT services. Contractors are also given more visibility through listing their services under 132-56 as opposed to the general IT services SIN.
