More Project Highlights

  • Veteran Affairs – Bidirectional Health Information Exchange (BHIE) and Data Access Service (DAS) Systems Engineering and Implementation

    BHIE/DAS is considered an essential mission-critical interagency framework of network interconnections and intelligent middleware that allows VA and DHA systems to identify and retrieve electronic health patient records from other connected VA and DHA systems. Technatomy provided a full system architecture assessment and developed the infrastructure and Operations and Maintenance (O&M) technology refresh and sustainment roadmap. Our development of new capabilities included integration with other systems and optimizing configurations to facilitate interoperability. We regularly conducted analyses of cybersecurity and integration requirements and data exchange formats to identify opportunities for adaptive enhancements. Technatomy applied a DevOps approach that enabled continuous development and continuous integration to provide rapid, reliable, and low-risk delivery of high-quality BHIE capabilities. For example, to align the BHIE framework with new architectural standards of VA and DoD modernization initiatives, we implemented a new Health Level-7 International (HL7) Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources (FHIR) based infrastructure for data retrieval and exchange.

  • Veteran Affairs – System Admin Support for Identity Access Management (IAM)

    The VA required IAM systems and services to support and secure their enterprise business and Health-IT systems. Technatomy provided system engineering and maintenance support for the VA’s IAM program, which offers consistent methods for identifying over 12 million VA, DoD, business partner, and outside provider clients across the enterprise and applying and enforcing standardized access managed services to safeguard information resources. The systems secured by IAM contain millions of Personally Identifiable Information (PII) and Sensitive Personal Information (SPI) records. The IAM program consisted of 12 applications that held a FISMA High-Security Categorization. Technatomy had management responsibility of the IAM environment, including all aspects of the program schedule, performance, quality, cost, and incident management. We maintained an Information Technology Infrastructure Library (ITIL) framework that included service strategy, service design, service transition, service operation, and continual service improvement. As the primary Terremark/Azure interface, Technatomy performed management and operations of VA IT resources and IT business functions. Technatomy developed and maintained the entire inventory of IAM assets deployed within Austin Information Technology Center (AITC), Terremark, and Hines IL Data Center environments. When first awarded the contract, the IAM environment utilized the VA Cloud Bridge (Terremark) to support IAM’s tightly controlled pre-production and production environments. Technatomy designed, planned, and completed the migration of VA’s IAM from the Terremark data center to Microsoft Azure Government (MAG).
