Site/IT Manager Support

This page is provided as a brief description of requirements to installing the iCare Population Management System. For detailed instructions including BQI routines, files, menus, cross references, globals and explanations, please review the iCare documentation accessed through the link above.


The iCare Population Management GUI (BQI) software is a component of the Indian Health Service (IHS) Resource and Patient Management System (RPMS) that provides case management functions. Case management provides a mechanism to inform healthcare providers about single or multiple disease states and conditions and to follow up clinical interventions. These applications can assist healthcare providers in identifying high-risk patients, tracking care reminders and the health status of individuals or populations, providing appropriate care by embedding evidence-based guidelines, and reporting outcomes. Appropriate case management improves the delivery of care, as well as the outcome. In addition, there are documented fiscal benefits when appropriate case management is introduced into the healthcare business process model.

All routines, files, options, and keys are namespaced starting with the letters BQI. The file number range for this package is 90505-90509.99.


The RPMS server portion of the iCare application does not require a specific version, cache or operation system (OS). However, the RPMS server must be able to fully support BMXNet (BMX) 4.0 or higher, and is therefore subject to any requirements need to run that application. Please refer to the BMX version 4.0 Technical Manual for details.
