    inside VA
  • Intend to assess VHA interest in and viability of
    this technology
  • Premise is clinicians and allied health
    professionals will utilize wiki technology to
    freely share clinical knowledge with colleagues
  • Contributes to larger goal of assessing Web 2.0
    social networking

6
Anticipated Wiki Benefits
  • Will encourage collective creation of knowledge
    within VHA and ensure its availability to
    interested persons
  • Viewed as credible information source and provide
    immediate relevance to VHA clinicians
  • Attract wide range of clinical users including
    nurses, researchers, residents, medical and
    allied health students

7
Clinical Wiki Pilot (cont)
  • Initial wiki environment will use same feature
    set as found in the open source technology
    powering Wikipedia.com
  • Will support both general and specialized
    communities (portals) and availability of
    discussion areas, news and event postings
  • Will require contributor authentication and
    attribution
  • Expect pilot to be available early next quarter

Point of Care (POC) Device Assessment Program
  • Purpose Examine the use of information
    technology products for use by VHA clinicians at
    the point of care
  • POC device definition Information technology
    (IT) products with user interfaces (e.g. hand
    held, mobile, wireless, laptop, thin/thick client
    devices) that can access VAs VistA computer
    system and / or other information sources
  • What is excluded diagnostic and therapeutic
    biomedical devices

10
POC Device Assessment Approach
  • Approach
  • Define POC device reference model (framework)
  • For a particular setting (e.g. clinic, ward, long
    term care) and role (primary care doc, nurse,
    specialist) identify and prioritize devices of
    high interest
  • Engage clinicians in conducting assessments
    (tablet PCs will be first examined)
  • Provide opportunity for diverse collaboration
    with other teams (e.g. security, patient safety,
    etc.)

11
POC Device Assessment Program (cont)
  • Publish a series of on-line Consumer Reports
    like articles.
  • Program will serve as information resource for
    sites looking at devices
  • Focus is on technology and not products
  • Acquisition recommendations are out of scope.
  • Timeframe Contract award to develop methodology
    and framework expected in Dec. 2008

    individuals working together towards a common
    goal .
  • Peter A. Gloor, Carey Heckman, Fillia Makedon

14
Our Focus The Intersection
Collaborative Innovation happens here
15
Innovation Sandbox Description
  • The Innovation Sandbox is much more than a
    software development environment. It is also a
    virtual space for people to collaborate,
    innovate, and develop ideas and requirements
  • The Sandbox is a geographically limitless
    solution to the historic challenge of locally
    bound development efforts
  • The Sandbox is intended for anyone wishing to
    contribute ideas to VistA development

16
Collaborative Innovation Initial Accomplishments

    needs
  • Strengthen early idea sharing
  • Encourage communities of interest
  • Increase collaboration
  • Eliminate redundancy
  • Rapidly deploy innovative software which adheres
    to national development standards

18
Collaborative Innovation Principles
  • Access is easy and open to all
  • The Sandbox is structured to allow ideas and work
    products to be freely shared
  • There is a well-defined path for mainstreaming
    innovative creations into production
  • Failures are expected and accepted as a cost of
    being innovative
  • Sandbox governance promotes process consistency,
    simplicity, and reuse

19
User Experience
  • Receive general innovation news
  • Access resource libraries
  • Discover or create birds of a feather
    communities
  • Contribute ideas and collaborate in shaping
    business requirements
  • The more technically inclined can initiate
    software projects
  • Innovation ideas or requirements may be submitted
    to the New Service Request (NSR) process
  • Applications that meet high-bar exit criteria
    for national business value, OIT programming
    standards and infrastructure capacity may be
    fast-tracked within the NSR process

20
Market Survey
  • Contract awarded to survey market for toolset
  • final recommendations received in March 2008 and
    refreshed in August 2008
  • The market is clearly emerging and volatile
  • No single solution meets our wants
  • Current thinking bridge two commercial products
  • one strong in idea and community management
  • a second to provide a solid development
    environment

21
Collaborative Innovation Current and Future Plans
  • In progress now
  • Bench validation of candidate products
  • Development of functional requirements for
    Sandbox environment

23
Definition of EHR-S
  • EHR-S includes all clinically related systems or
    applications such Computerized Patient Record
    Systems (CPRS) and radiology, lab, scheduling,
    and pharmacy packages
  • Medical devices and national data bases such as
    Decision Support System (DSS) and the
    Administrative Data Repository (ADR) are not part
    of the EHR-S although the need to interface with
    them will be a key characteristic of it

24
EHR-S Visioning Objective
  • Want to define shared vision for next
    generation EHR-S
  • Called shared because products of meetings
    become basis for vision document that will be
    available for broad community review and
    contribution
  • Will seek to make shared vision an authoritative
    document
  • Will serve as roadmap for VHA as it defines
    capabilities and priorities for future
    development efforts

25
EHR-S Visioning Approach
  • Facilitating a series of meetings with key EHR-S
    stakeholders
  • Final meeting will begin tomorrow with allied
    health, research, education, and academic
    affiliations
  • VHA stakeholders (e.g., Veteran Service
    Organizations (VSO) and healthcare partners
    (e.g., DoD and IHS) will be briefed
  • Vision document will be iterated and available
    for contributions from larger VHA community
  • Look for draft vision in January

26

EHR-S Guiding Principles
  • Participants in the visioning meetings developed
    the following EHR-S Guiding Principles statement
  • In building the EHR-S of the future
  • VHA will define its content, functionality and
    performance requirements.
  • Clinicians will lead and collaborate with other
    stakeholders in the continuous evolution of the
    system.
  • The EHR-S of the future will support and enable
    VHAs missions, with specific focus on patient
    safety and quality of care, by
  • Being patient-centric
  • Facilitating knowledge discovery, accommodating
    innovation and changes in health care practice
    and information needs
  • Providing a framework to identify and promote use
    of best practices and innovation, in both patient
    care and informatics
  • Reducing undesirable variation through support
    for consistent approaches to common tasks
  • Supporting standardization at the core and
    diversity at the periphery
  • Enhancing communication internal and external to
    VHA, among clinicians and with patients, across
    organizations and the continuum of care and
  • Promoting the efficiency and effectiveness of
    clinical staff.

31
EHR-S Capabilities
  • Participants in the visioning meetings determined
    that the EHR-S must have the following
    characteristics

    information and data reuse capture the data once
    and use it many times
  • Support context-driven views, giving the right
    information at the right time
  • Provide access to data for all users, including
    people with disabilities (e.g., access from
    numerous places with numerous devices)
  • Manage the patient's composite record including
    longitudinal patient views (internal source,
    format, location, identity)
  • Be context, role, and event aware
  • Be instrumented to support user efficiencies
  • Promote the wellness of the veteran population
