The results of the studies form the statistical basis for claiming federal reimbursement; therefore, the RMS results and the system used to generate and manage the study must be statistically valid and in full compliance with applicable federal and state rules, regulations and requirements, including but not limited to the CAP and 2 CFR Part 200 guidance. WebRMS, our newest RMS application, is a state-of-the-art, web-based system that was developed to meet the demands and expectations of our government clients. WebRMS offers:

Our services include:
