Health Systems Projects

CPS has provided broad support to the Federal Healthcare community since inception in 2002, and possesses extensive qualifications supporting Medical Imaging and Health Information Technology (IT) Sustainment programs for the Departments of Defense (DoD) and Veterans Affairs (VA). CPSs outstanding track record is evidenced by the repeat of prime contract work for clients on high-profile Healthcare IT programs such as the NDAA El Paso Interagency Imaging Program, and the Federal Health Information Exchange (FHIE) and Bi-directional Health Information Exchange (BHIE) Systems Engineering and Infrastructure Support Program. These contracts have provided CPS with the opportunity to partner with the Government in developing and deploying technology that has enabled the successful communication of medical image data between the VA and DoD, and the unique ability to gain an understanding of the site specific challenges and constraints that exist at data sharing and medical health facilities across the globe. CPS provided support for systems, network and applications sustainment for all FHIE/BHIE and NDAA Imaging Applications and System components, to include the support for Commercial off-the-Shelf (COTS), Government off-the-shelf (GOTS) and custom applications across multiple technology environments. CPS has also provided support for high visibility HealthCare IT programs such as the Healthcare Artifact and Image Management Solution (HAIMS), NDAA Imaging Sustainment, and BHIE Software Enhancements Support.

  • Healthcare Artifact and Image Management Solution (HAIMS)

    The HAIMS initiative will serve to provide awareness and access by clinicians to all relevant patient information in and between the Department of Defense (DoD) and the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). This data will include radiological Artifacts and Information, and will provide support for medical specialists who use images and for low density specialists who provide remote supporting services to clinicians who provide direct patient care.

  • NDAA Image Sharing Operations and Sustainment

    The NDAA Operations and Sustainment contract is a follow-on to the prime contract successfully executed by CPS from 2006 through 2008, under which CPS developed the Medical Image Viewer (MIV) and the Picture Archiving and Communication System (PACS) Integrator (PACSIntegrator) products. These technologies were initially developed by CPS on behalf of the DoD and VA to enable the sharing of medical image data between and within the organizations. CPS holds commercial copyrights on both the MIV and PACSIntegrator products.

  • NDAA Interagency Image Sharing

    The NDAA Interagency Imaging Prototype Project is a joint initiative between the Department of Defense (DoD) and the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) to design, develop and implement bi-directional medical image sharing capabilities between the two agencies. The scope of this task includes demonstrating the successful first-time bi-directional image data sharing between the DINPACS systems at William Beaumont Army Medical Center (WBAMC) and the VistA Imaging/Remote Image view stations at the VA El Paso HCS, and subsequently at Fort Carson (Evans Army Community Hospital), Navy Hospital Great Lakes in Great Lakes, IL, as well as the BIA deployed in the VA secured Austin Automation Center in Austin, TX. In support of this important initiative, CPS provides full life-cycle development services to include requirements analysis, architecture analysis and implementation, software engineering, program management, metrics capture and analysis, performance analysis and testing. CPS successful performance under this contract resulted in the development of the PACS Integrator, which is presently being deployed by the CPS Team to multiple DoD and VA sites to include Walter Reed Army Medical Center, Bethesda National Naval Medical Center and Keesler AFB Medical Center. CPS continues to provide software development support with Microsoft C#.Net using Capability Maturity Model best practices and industry standard object oriented patterns and techniques.

  • FHIE Operations and Maintenance Support

    CPS was the prime Operations and Maintenance support contractor for the Congressionally mandated DoD Health Affairs and Veterans Health Administration Federal Health Information Exchange (FHIE) and Bi-directional Health Information Exchange (BHIE) program. FHIE/BHIE is an interagency project between the Departments of Defense (DoD) and Veterans Affairs (VA) to jointly operate an end-to-end system that provides patient information to physicians at DoD and VA medical facilities, and the Veterans Benefits Administration. The current solution has been deployed at over 30 DoD-VA data sharing facilities and is being deployed globally. CPS provided systems, network and applications engineering support for all FHIE and BHIE Applications and System components, and for supporting Commercial off-the-Shelf (COTS) applications across multiple technology environments. In addition, CPS provided coordination, collaboration, oversight and reporting for activities related to the development, testing, support, documentation and maintenance of the FHIE infrastructure, using and overseeing the compliance to VA standard operating procedures. Relevant technologies supported included Microsoft OS, Microsoft Cluster Server, HP, Dell, Compaq, SunOne, Sun, Java, Cisco, Oracle, Veritas, Erwin, Rational and Red Hat Linux.
