Interoperability Overview
VETERANS HEALTH ADMINISTRATION

What is Interoperability?
Interoperability refers to the relationships between systems,
information, and people required to provide outstanding health
care and benefits for our Servicemembers and Veterans.
• Systems include the infrastructure and equipment needed to store
information and move it from place to place
• Information includes all the data, from all useful sources, needed for
providing and receiving care and benefits
• People include clinicians and other providers, claims processors, transition
coordinators, etc., as well as the Veterans and Servicemembers providing
or receiving care and benefits
VETERANS HEALTH ADMINISTRATION

Three Key Interoperability Relationships
Relationship #1 – Technical Interoperability
•
Information must be reliably exchanged between multiple Systems so People in
different places and organizations can see it, use it and add to it
Relationship #2 – Semantic Interoperability
•
Information exchanged between Systems must have shared meaning in order for
People (assisted by computers) to use it for making care and benefits decisions
Relationship #3 – Process Interoperability
•
People (assisted by computers) must be able to make use of shared Information in
their local workflows and processes for providing and receiving care and benefits

Proposed i3P – a Foundation for
Seamless Interoperability
The integrated Electronic Health Record (iEHR) Informatics
Integration and Interoperability Platform (i3P) will be an
inherent cross-platform capability between VA and DoD health
information systems, creating a seamless, interoperable,
longitudinal health record for Servicemembers and Veterans.
VETERANS HEALTH ADMINISTRATION
8
What Will i3P Do?
•
Federate data from legacy and future DoD and VA Electronic Health Record (EHR)
and related business systems
– Enables interoperability relationships between old and new health information
technology (HIT) Systems, Information and People from all critical DoD and VA health
data domains
•
•
•
Aggregate, store and index eHealth Exchange data used by VA and DoD providers
in clinical decision making
Facilitate decommissioning of several complicated and expensive legacy VA-DoD
health data sharing mechanisms in Fiscal Year 2015-2016
Provides a shared platform for data federation, clinical terminology, access
management, patient identity, and support for clinical decision services for VA and
DoD
– Enables decommissioning of Clinical/Health Data Repository (CHDR), most Bidirectional
Health Information Exchange (BHIE) SHARE and Framework components, jMeadows,
Medical Domain Web Services (MDWS), VistAWeb, and consolidation of DoD and VA
Virtual Lifetime Electronic Records (VLER) Adapters

Janus JLV Features
Janus JLV provides an integrated read-only view of health data from DoD and VA
sources in a common viewer.
Features
An important stepping stone toward
modernizing our VA and DoD health
• Web-based Graphical User Interface
information systems, JLV will support
• Integrated, chronological view of VA and DoD patient
care of our Wounded Warriors and
data on a single screen
Veterans by improving access to
• Displays progress notes, problem lists, labs, vitals,
electronic patient records and reducing
the need to transfer information by fax,
immunizations, allergies, medications, Essentris
mail, or CD.
inpatient discharge summaries (DoD), and radiology

Janus JLV Proposed FY14-16 Mission
and Objectives
Janus JLV Mission
Janus JLV provides an integrated view of health data from DoD and VA sources in a common viewer. Janus JLV will continue
to simplify the review of patient records, will reduce printing, scanning and faxing of paper records, and supports both clinical
and benefit adjudication activities in the DoD and VA.
FY14 Proposed Objectives
• Display of normalized data for seven Accelerator domains + i3P Block 1 and 2 domains as available on path to enable
retirement of legacy systems
• Incorporate eHealth Exchange functionality to enable VistAWeb retirement
• Healthcare Artifact and Image Management Solution (HAIMS)/VistA Imaging viewer and doclist widgets
• Integrate with iEHR Document Management System (DMS) (including terminology service)
• User Interface and usability enhancements based on customer requirements
• Capacity for up to 40,000 concurrent users
• Expand footprint at Military Health System (MHS) Enterprise Service Operations Center (MESOC), Austin Information
Technology Center (AITC) and two regional Defense Information Systems Administration (DISA) Defense Enterprise
Computing Centers (DECCs) to provide for additional capacity, load balancing and fail-over.
FY15/16 Proposed Objectives
• Sustainment
• Complete incorporation of Block 2-4 domains as needed (may not be needed if superseded by Healthcare Management
System Modernization (DHMSM) or VistA 4 viewer)
• Development as required for specific customer needs (i.e., enhancements requested by Veterans Benefit Administration
(VBA) or National Guard users)
• Work to transition JLV viewer features into DoD DHMSM and VA VistA 4 applications

Background
• In 2013, VA and DoD Secretaries made decisions that require
a change in EHR strategy
• The VA EHR will be VistA-based
• Our mission has not changed
‘to care for him who shall have
borne the battle and for his widow,
and his orphan’
VETERANS HEALTH ADMINISTRATION

Current VA Landscape
Currently, our EHR and
Health Information
Technology (HIT) systems
are disconnected and
fragmented
This impacts our ability to
deliver on the mission excellent quality, access,
satisfaction, and value

VistA Evolution and VistA IV
VistA Evolution is the VHA program that will
support this strategic plan through continual
investment and delivery of scalable and modular
EHR and HIT products.
VistA IV is the infrastructure and open and
extensible platform on which tools and services
can be integrated in support of our Veterans
evolving needs and in pace with the
technological landscape.
