ARLINGTON, VA – Planned Systems International, Inc. (PSI) — a leading provider of Health IT solutions to the federal government — today announced that two of its programs have been appraised at Level 3 of the CMMI Institute’s Capability Maturity Model Integration (CMMI)® for Development and Services. This multi-model appraisal was performed by SysDevCo and resulted in PSI’s Theater Medical Information Program-Joint (TMIP-J) obtaining a Level 3 rating in CMMI for Development and PSI’s Internal IT Services Division obtaining a Level 3 rating in CMMI for Services.

CMMI is a capability improvement approach that provides organizations with the essential elements of effective processes that ultimately improve their performance.

An appraisal at maturity level 3 indicates the organization is performing at a “defined” level. At this level, processes are well characterized and understood, and are described in standards, procedures, tools, and methods. The organization’s set of standard processes, which is the basis for maturity level 3, is established and improved over time.

"Earning our CMMI® for Development and Services signifies another major milestone that demonstrates PSI's commitment to providing our customers with the highest quality standards," said CEO Terry Lin. "This investment in our systems, infrastructure and processes will pay big dividends to our customers as we continue to provide them with the highest quality deliverables and services.”

PSI holds the distinction of being one of only 15 companies in the United States to have successfully completed a staged representation multi-model appraisal for CMMI for Development and CMMI for Services (at the time of this press release).
