SemanticBits is extremely excited to announce that we have won a task order with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to provide a DevSecOps team to support the Pandemic-Ready Interoperability Modernization Effort, or PRIME for short. This project is in direct response to the COVID pandemic. It’s a multi-year collaboration between CDC and the U.S. Digital Service (USDS) to strengthen data quality and information technology systems in state and local health departments. PRIME includes three interrelated projects: Data Automation reduces the burden on hospitals and labs to report COVID data to the government; SimpleReport improves the reporting workflow for key point-of-care test sites like schools; and ReportStream streamlines data sharing across jurisdictions. We will be implementing the infrastructure using modern DevOps approaches to support these key components using Terraform and Azure. We look forward to the opportunity to support the CDC with this hugely impactful project.
