Syra Health, a healthcare technology company that provides tools to analyze population health, announced it secured a third contract in Virginia to help staff Fairfax County’s healthcare workforce.
The Indiana-based company offers workforce management, including recruitment, evaluation, a talent processing center, apprenticeships, communication tools, performance analytics, compliance monitoring, training, certifications, and career coaching.
Through Syra’s contract with Fairfax County, the company will staff licensed nurses to
offer 24-hour nursing care and help the County fill other temporary healthcare positions.
The agreement will expire June 30, 2028, but may be renewed for an additional two years.
The Fairfax County contract marks the third agreement the company has made within the State of Virginia. In September, the company signed on with the Commonwealth of Virginia Department of Corrections to supply temporary medical staff. Before that, it partnered with the state’s Department of General Services to provide healthcare staff state-wide.
“Our dedication to enhancing healthcare extends beyond traditional models. By providing top-tier clinical staffing, we aim to contribute to the County of Fairfax’s commitment to delivering quality healthcare services to its community,” Sandeep Allam, executive chairman and president of Syra Health, said in a statement.
THE LARGER TREND
Syra Health also partners with public health departments to analyze population health.
In November, Syra Health announced it signed a five-year $275,000 contract to examine the City of San Antonio’s implementation of its Racial and Ethnic Approaches to Community Health (REACH) project.
REACH is a U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) project administered by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
San Antonio employed Syra to expand HHS’ Healthy Neighborhoods program and reduce racial and ethnic health disparities, including chronic disease for specific populations with a high disease burden in rural, urban, and tribal communities.
In January, the Indiana-based company announced it signed a one-year $480,000 contract to assess how existing risks to public health in its home state impact public health infrastructure and behavioral health.
