Specifications

Specifications include, but are not limited to:The Contractor shall provide outpatient health treatment for individuals with Hansen's Disease (HD), case management and follow-up of the HD patients and screening of their close contacts; provide information and in-service education about HD to healthcare providers in the community and to serve as an HD consultant and resource in the San Diego County area.Background/DescriptionThe legislative authority for the National Hansen's Disease Programs is Public Law 99-117, Section 2. (a.), Section 320, and is guided by the Department of Health and Human Services regulations. The Ambulatory Care Program was initiated in 1981 as a consequence of the closing of the United States Public Health Service (USPHS) hospitals. Historically, persons with HD were provided care by those facilities in the U.S. In order to continue the mandate of the legislative authority, a Contract Care Program was developed to provide these services in communities where the majority of people with HD lived. Those geographic areas are reflected by the location of the current Outpatient HD Clinics. In 1994, the Contract Care Program was converted to grants. As of September 29, 2003, the grant program has now been converted to a Contract Care Program.Hansen's Disease in the United States occurs primarily in California, Louisiana, New York, Puerto Rico, and Texas, and among Asian and Hispanic populations in these areas.Presently, 120 patients with HD are being treated in the San Diego County area. On the basis of experience, it is estimated that these patients will require an average of 4 outpatient visits annually during the period of this contract. It is recognized that patients with Acute Reactional States (Lepra Reactions, Reversal Reactions, Downgrading Reactions and Erythema Nodosum Leprosum) may require multiple visits to the Hansen's Disease Clinic, at times weekly, and may require up to 20 visits or more in one year
