The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has selected Unisys to compete for task and delivery order under a potential five-year, $49 million Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) and Intelligent Automation/Artificial Intelligence (IAAI) contract, Unisys announced on Tuesday

The contract provides an opportunity for Unisys to help HHS advance its mission of enhancing and protecting the health and well-being of Americans by fostering advances in medicine, public health and social services. 

"Unisys is excited to provide technologies to help HHS further its mission of modernizing and improving the delivery of vital services to the public," said Melissa Carson, group vice president for civilian agencies, Unisys Federal. 

The contract serves as a vehicle to transform HHS' operations and delivery of services to its constituents. HHS intends to use automation and other innovative solutions to reduce operational backlog and costs and streamline other functions, such as combating fraud and using facial recognition to identify suspects of services theft.

"We have already integrated artificial intelligence, machine learning, advanced data analytics and other relevant technologies into our secure solution offerings, and are ready right now to apply the innovations that HHS needs to transform its operations and service model," Carson added.
