Presentation Transcript
project goals and objectives
Project Goals and Objectives
  • Improve patient safety through the sharing of medical images between the VA and DoD. Targeted enhancements include; the capability to deliver images produced within any VA medical center, as well as images from outside sources such as DoD medical facilities or community hospitals.
  • Increase timeliness of access to care by improving clinicians’ workflow, thereby increasing the number of patients that can be treated. Targeted enhancements include expanding interfaces to commercial medical devices, including Picture Archiving and Communications Systems (PACS) and systems that provide 3-D reconstruction of radiology images.
  • These capabilities will be delivered through specific developmental initiatives within the program including; Remote Image Views that provide access to images at remote facilities, Telereader capabilities for remote interpretation of images, VA/DOD sharing of images. Additional enhancements will be made to the VistA Imaging scanned document capabilities and diagnostic radiology.

FY2010 – FY2015

  • 7/5/07 The GSA contract with Cerner was signed
  • 2/2008 The localized workflow build will be completed for West Roxbury
  • 8/2008 User Acceptance Testing for LIMS functionality will be complete
  • 9/2008 Full Integration Testing with VistA will be complete
  • 12/2008 Independent Verification & Validation will be complete
  • 1/2009 Field testing begins with West Roxbury followed by Bedford and West Haven
  • 4/2010 IOC (definition: Field test complete and Deployment Approval received)
  • 4/2010 National Deployment Begins
  • 4/2015 FOC (definition: end of National Deployment)

Prototype Scope Overview

The LIMS prototype will demonstrate Integration with VistA including deployed HealtheVet services, key LIMS functionality and system performance. The duration of the prototype is expected to be 12 months.

  • End to End integration testing (Order-> Process -> Result)

HeV Lab Version 1.1 : CPRS  Legacy Lab  Cerner  Legacy Lab

  • Standardization: Consolidated Order Catalog and workflow configuration features that promote standardization
  • Functional: Key scenarios from the following Business Processes:

Accept Lab Order Schedule Activity

Collect Specimen Create Workflow Activity

Receive Specimen Create Test Workflow

Prep Specimen Create Auditable Event

Analyze Specimen Create Lab Metric

Create Standing Report Template Pull Supplies

Create Lab Performance Dashboard Add Test Offering

Add Specimen to Archive Create Workgroup

  • Performance: Capacity Load Testing to ensure that the deployment topology meets or exceeds the performance expectations of VA. This requires:
      • Capacity Load benchmarking (Cerner)
      • Capacity Load benchmarking (VistA HL7 App)
      • Performance Turn Around Time (common set of tests)
  • Original budget for development: $100.10 (FY05 OMB Exhibit 300)
  • Current budget estimate: $217.39 (Full lifecycle cost, 5 yrs O&M)
  • Total expended through FY07: $13.162M
project dependencies
Project Dependencies
  • Computerized Patient Records System (CPRS/Legacy) – VistA Imaging has
  • several interfaces to CPRS that are very important to clinicians. Some of these interfaces improve clinician workflow. Any enhancements made need to be closely coordinated.
  • Standards & Terminology Services (STS) – VistA Imaging has developed a
  • standard enterprise image terminology that is used by clinicians to locate image studies quickly. This standard terminology is coordinated with STS. Need STS involvement with outside partners such as DoD.
  • Radiology Services – VistA Imaging uses radiology workflow indicators to allow
  • radiologists work efficiently.
  • Identity Services – VistA Imaging will be dependent upon Common Services for a
  • role-based access and user management.
  • Enterprise Architecture – VistA Imaging uses standard development tools and the
  • VA’s standard architecture. Any changes in the standard architecture need to be coordinated.
  • Health Data Repository–VistA Imaging is beginning to provide data to information
  • to the Health Data Repository to support associations of images with medical documents. This initiative is being closely coordinated.
