3 VistA Evolution Community Briefing: Welcoming Remarks Presented by Dr. Aaron Drew
4 VistA Evolution Community Briefing: Interoperability A key objective of the VistA Evolution Program is to enhance cross-Agency (DoD/VA) interoperability by providing all clinically relevant data at the point of care for Veterans. Improved interoperability will enhance communication among VA health care partners by ensuring that authorized beneficiary and medical data are accessible, usable, shared, secured and sufficient to meet the needs of Veterans and their care team in real-time.Timely access to all clinically relevant patient records, regardless of the institution that provided the care, is critical in order for Veterans to have efficient, safe and effective care coordination. Enhanced interoperability will also allow provide the foundation for better clinical decision support, which providers will use to improve Veterans’ health.The overarching goal of VistA Interoperability is to enable more efficient clinical workflows and improved patient care.
5 VistA Evolution Community Briefing: eHMP The next evolution of VistA requires a world-class, open, modular, and extensible user experience. eHMP will develop a new web-based clinical application that migrates the current functionality in VistA’s existing user interface, Computerized Patient Record System (CPRS).eHMP will leverage and integrate the enhanced graphical user interface, standards-based data, and core clinical applications deployed during the User Experience project, Joint Legacy Viewer (JLV), and Health Informatics Initiative (Hi2).

7 Interoperability: FY14 NDAA Interoperability Requirements VA Interoperability: A standards-based Electronic Health Record (EHR) with integrated display of data.VA will meet the requirements of Public Law (P.L ), SECTION 713 – “ELECTRONIC HEALTH RECORDS OF THE DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE AND THE DEPARTMENT OF VETERANS AFFAIRS,” of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for Fiscal Year (FY) 2014 by December 31, 2016, by achieving an interoperable EHR with an integrated display of data with the Department of Defense (DoD) and private providers. The interoperable EHR will provide all relevant heath care data of DoD and Veterans Affairs (VA), computable in near real time and complying with the national standards and architectural requirements identified by the IPO, in collaboration with Office of the National Coordinator (ONC) for Health Information Technology (HIT) of the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).Requirements:DoD/VA interoperable standards based EHR with integrated display of data (NDAA 2014 Sec 713 (b)(1))Ensure the continued support and compatibility of the interoperability platform (NDAA 2014 Sec 713 (b)(2))All relevant health care data of both Departments’ EHR systems shall be computable in near real-time and comply with, and able to evolve with, existing national standards and use proven life-cycle sustainment planning (NDAA 2014 Sec 713 (c)(3) (a) (b) (d) Sec 713 (g) (1))Achieve Gartner Generation 3 EHR (NDAA 2014 Sec 713 (c) (4))Additional principles where feasible, VA’s interoperable EHR will also:Will comply with the requirements, where practical, of the Joint Executive Committee (JEC) (NDAA 2014 Sec 713 (c) (1))Create an authoritative health data source with standardized input, which can be used by multiple providers (NDAA 2014 Sec 713 (c) (5) (a))Enable patients to download, or otherwise receive electronically, health care records (NDAA 2014 Sec 713 (c) (5) (b))Enable patients to upload health care records and allow DoD/VA medical providers access to such records (NDAA 2014 Sec 713 (c) (5) (c))
8 Interoperability: Joint Interoperability Efforts VA’s interoperability efforts are being coordinated with DoD, the DoD/VA Interagency Program Office (IPO) and Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC):DoD – Defense Health Agency (DHA), Defense Healthcare Management Systems (DHMS) Program Executive Office, Defense Medical Information Exchange (DMIX) Program Office, Defense Healthcare Management Systems Modernization (DHMSM) Program OfficeVistA Evolution Interoperability Plan (VEIP)Currently being updated and pending release to Veterans Affairs Intranet Quorum (VAIQ), a portal for obtaining document concurrence, upon Senior Leadership approval.Participants: VA (OI&T, VHA), DoD/DHA/DMIX, DoD/DHA, DoD/VA IPOThe VEIP and its high-level summary are in alignment with the DoD/VA IPO’s :Joint Interoperability Plan (JIP)Health Information Interoperability Technical Package (I2TP)Health Data Interoperability Management Plan (H-DIMP)
9 Interoperability: Strategy and Steps VistA Evolution Interoperability Capabilities are being achieved within the overarching VistA Evolution product delivery schedule.The path to interoperability evolves and builds upon existing interoperability to satisfy the FY 2014 NDAA directive to provide “seamless electronic sharing of medical health data” between the Departments by December 31, 2016.Interoperability is a path of continual improvement and a permanent commitment, not an end-state.Continued work as new health discoveries are made, new use cases are identified, and as interoperability standards evolve over time
10 Interoperability: Approach VistA Evolution capabilities requires that we modernize VA’s Interoperability infrastructure.We are modernizing the legacy Health Information Exchange (HIE) interoperability infrastructure using a proactive systematic process approach:Technical, and Functional Reviews of the legacy interoperability infrastructureIdentifying systems for decommissioning or are in need of functional and technical enhancementsClose coordination with Clinical Informaticists with regards to national standards
