About the Client
The VA Electronic Health Record Modernization-Integration Office (EHRM-IO) was facing the challenge of managing the Veterans Data Integration and Federation (VDIF) Program Management Office effectively. The VDIF program was crucial for integrating and federating health information for veterans, making it easily accessible and usable for healthcare providers. However, the lack of a robust program management infrastructure was hindering the achievement of this goal.
Solution and Outcomes
Varada Consulting provided comprehensive program management support to the VDIF Program Management Office of the VA Electronic Health Record Modernization-Integration Office (EHRM-IO). The project aimed to effectively manage the VDIF PMO infrastructure, to ensure the smooth functioning of the integration of veteran's data.
The key solutions provided by Varada included the management of VDIF PMO infrastructure, creation of non-production testing domains, and upgrading the Intersystem HealthShare environment. These measures helped to ensure that the integration process was smooth and efficient, and that all data was managed in a secure and compliant manner.
Tools and Compliance
Varada used the Information Technology Infrastructure Library (ITIL) and KanBan methodology, GitHub and Jira for project management, MS SharePoint for collaboration, MS Office Suite, and ensured compliance with Federal Acquisition Regulations (FAR) and VA OIT policies related to privacy and confidentiality. All personnel remained in compliance with mandatory VA training and certification processes.
