Fairfax, Virginia, June 6, 2017 – The CMS Center for Clinical Standards and Quality (CCSQ) and its Information Systems Group (ISG) has selected CVP to provide ad hoc reporting, analytics and data management tasks and services in support of the Health Care Quality Information System (HCQIS) applications.
