The University awarded a contract for management of a web-based patient billing system to McKesson, Wheeling, IL, for an estimated $330,000.
This sole source continues ongoing management of the system that was approved by the Director of Purchases in February 2004 on Purchase Recommendation MJH-076 for the period of April 4, 2004 through June 30, 2004 with the option to renew for 4 additional 12-month periods. The final renewal option expired June 30, 2008, but a stop-gap contract was issued for a one-month period ending July 30, 2008. This 11-month contract will help avoid any gap in services while allowing time to conduct a competitive process.
This purchase is only economically available from a single source because the
patient statement website has been customized for the Patient Accounting department at the University of Illinois Medical Center at Chicago.
