MOUNT LAUREL, N.J. (November 11, 2021) -- Wachter Healthcare Solutions, a leading provider of virtual patient observation solutions and maker of NOVA (Nursing Observation and Virtual Assistant), today announced that it — in partnership with Colossal Contracting, a Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business (SDVOSB) — was named an awardee of an Indefinite Delivery, Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) by the United States Department of Veterans Affairs (VA).
Through this ten-year, $65 million contract, Wachter and Colossal will provide innovative telehealth solutions to VA facilities nationwide in support of the TeleCare Companion Program. Wachter and Colossal can help providers at 1,293 VA facilities ensure quality care and avoid sentinel events as they care for 9 million enrolled veterans and their families.
With over 90 years providing cutting-edge business technologies, Wachter helps healthcare providers solve real-world needs. NOVA helps decrease costs, increase patient safety, and alleviate staffing issues. Each NOVA technician can remotely monitor 12 patients, helping to prevent adverse events such as patient falls, violence against staff or patients, elopement, and self-harm. And during the COVID-19 pandemic or other epidemics, NOVA also allows staff to reduce dependence on PPE while maintaining communications with infected patients. Wachter and Colossal will help VHA facilities determine site needs, design and deploy the best VPO solution, and provide training, maintenance, and support.
NOVA is already in use in multiple VA hospitals. This IDIQ will make it easier to get these solutions into the hands of practitioners at VA hospitals nationwide, and help healthcare providers provide quality care during these challenging times.
“Being an awardee of the IDIQ is a huge badge of honor for Wachter Healthcare Solutions,” said Ashley Kuruvilla, MSN, APRN, FNP-C, NOVA Business Development Manager. “Having been evaluated and receiving a stamp of approval shows VA hospitals across the country that our solution is capable of improving patient care and revolutionizing the healthcare industry through top-notch technology.”
