Rockville, MD – May 21, 2018 – CNSI, a leading health information technology solutions firm, was named Government Contracting Company of the Year by the Maryland Tech Council (MTC), Maryland’s largest technology trade association. CNSI received the award at the MTC Industry Awards Celebration on May 17 in College Park, Maryland.
“CNSI became an industry disrupter nearly 15 years ago when we launched the nation’s first web-centric Medicaid Management Information System, transforming the health IT industry,” said Adnan Ahmed, co-president of CNSI. “Keeping true to our core value of innovation, CNSI has continued to make positive industry strides over the past year, and we’re thrilled to be recognized by the Maryland Tech Council.”
The MTC Industry Awards recognize the best in innovation and reflect the evolution in Maryland over the last 30 years. CNSI was recognized for its innovative and inspirational work in the health care industry. Specifically, CNSI was named as the Government Contracting Company of the Year based on the following qualifications:
   * Achieved measurable success as evidenced by growth in revenue and profitability either through organic growth or acquisition
   * Developed critical expertise in its service to the government
   * Improved the level of service or cut costs of either the government or a prime contractor
   * Demonstrated success in partnering with other contracting firms in the region
Over the past year CNSI has been proud to launch the nation’s first ever cloud-based Medicaid Management System. The company has won several new health IT contracts, including a seven-year, $166 million DOL contract, a five-year, $44 million VA contract, and a 4.5-year, $35 million CMS contract. 
In 2017, CNSI made headlines for being the first company to work across state and federal lines to launch a CDC-backed cause of death mobile app to help states with disease surveillance, a critical tool during major outbreaks. The company also took the opioid epidemic head on by developing a solution with the state of Michigan that uses predictive analytics and artificial intelligence to identify characteristics and patterns of Medicaid recipients who may be at risk for opioid abuse.
“CNSI has been a longtime partner of the state and federal government, developing cutting-edge solutions that increase efficiency and accuracy while also cutting costs,” said Ahmed. “We are honored to have our work recognized and look forward to continuing to deliver innovative technologies to public sector healthcare for years to come.”
