Now celebrating our 35th year, we have helped over 300 clients to better define and design their software systems.
Our focus is on data architecture for enterprise healthcare IT systems. We specialize in management and technical planning to support the meaningful exchange of clinical data between enterprises. We provide consulting services for all aspects of data interoperability including standardized clinical terminologies We produce both MED-RT and the SNOMED-CT extension for the Veterans Health Administration.
Standardized terminologies are foundational to being able to send meaningful medical information to other doctors. The ability to transmit meaningful and precise data between different healthcare organizations with ease is referred to as interoperability.
Once data standards are in place and data models can be bound to terminologies to cement the meaning of the data. Our work on the Federal Health Information Model (FHIMS) has produced fine tuned clinical information models which can be used to produce FHIR resources. See fhims.org.
We have also worked extensively in other industries such as defense for DoD, Air Force Strategic Air Command (SAC), weapon systems, logistics, Command, Control, Communications and Intelligence (C3I) systems for the Navy, several Navy budgeting and financial systems, as well as several Navy ship parts systems, ship refit tracking, army troop mobilization, satellite communications, and submarine sonar array systems.
Case study: Health Information Exchange Analysis
In 2016, Veterans’ Health Administration (VHA) sought J P Systems to support the VHIE Health program, formerly know as VLER, in developing health information exchange (HIE) software processes, content, and business and systems architecture. They needed J P Systems to conduct and coordinate terminology standards activities, which included analyzing knowledge management and creating and managing healthcare terminologies. They needed a contractor who could also develop and maintain terminology standards within the VHIE Health Business & System Architecture, including FHIR™, Security Labeling Service (SLS), and Direct mail protocol.
We helped develop VHIE Health’s Business and System Architecture by analyzing its current state: architecture business capability, service capability, capability maturity, targets, and gaps associated with the VHIE program strategy and investment planning. We also made recommendations for the future state, suggesting optimal workflows associated with HIE Business & Systems Architecture and defining the As-Is & To-Be End-to-End Data Flow Architecture.
