2012 Pharmacy Informatics Virtual ConferenceTana Defa, VHA Initiative Lead
Transforming Health Care Delivery through Health Informatics (Health Informatics Initiative)
Why was the Initiative Established?
The Health Management Platform (HMP) is hi2’s component that builds IT products:
Supporting the Health Management Platform is a modern, web-based, tiered and open architectural framework based upon industry standards and best practices. The HMP enables incremental transition from old technology to new technology while both would co-exist harmoniously. The Health Management Platform provides a pathway for modernization of VA’s Computerized Patient Record System (CPRS.) For the near term, CPRS and HMP will co-exist.
The three components of the HMP are:
IT infrastructure modules to support transforming VA’s health IT system into a modern, web-based Health Management Platform (HMP)
Migration plan for evolving from CPRS to the Health Management Platform
Collaborative development environment and tools to enable the HMP development team to work interactively with informaticists, SMEs, development partners and pilot sites
Virtual Patient Record (VPR) as a robust data layer that promotes interoperability and data exchange through industry standards and accessible data schemas
Selecting and engaging VA San Diego Healthcare System as the firstHMP Pilot Site
Gap analyses of Team, Patient and System-facing components
Introduction of the hi2 Brand
Who We Are and Where We've Been
Engage, Educate, Empower
Where We Are Going
Proposed in May 2010 as “T16”. Following Initiative launch in October of the same year, communication strategy was formally implemented. In February of 2011, brand strategy transformed “T16” to “hi2” (“Health Informatics Initiative”).
WS D Built Strategy To Deliver On the Following Objectives:
Branding the Initiative
Branding the Platform
The development of the new Health Management Platform is more than just another version of CPRS (i.e. AViVA). It is truly transformational technology based on industry standards and best practices, that provides a pathway for modernization. We took this opportunity to truly brand the platform in a highly dynamic way, where .hmp is more than just a logo execution, it is a new vernacular that defines the interaction of our products with our platform.
The .hmp Approach:
.hmpis the solution that defines the interaction of our products with our platform.
.hmpis the vernacular of the new technology.
.hmpis a new suffix, and URL extension.
Branding the People(Coming Late Summer 2012)
Whether you are in a VA Leadership Role, OIT Developer, Project Manager, Strategist, Informaticist, Educator, Care Team Member, or VA Patient, the development and implementation of the new Health Management Platform is comprised of teams of “People” making a difference. “Delta” means “change” – and Task Force DELTA represents the change management component and collaboration of all those involved making health care transformation possible.
