STUDY ON VHA DATA MANAGEMENT AND DATA GOVERNANCE
JPSys analyzed the VHA data acquisition process from Cerner and made recommendations on the use of existing tools (CDW, VistA, Rocky’s) to improve the transfer of data into a data ecosystem managed by VHA. The team wrote a substantial white paper on Data Management and Data Governance. This explained how the principles and framework of data governance are essential to developing a data management approach.
Therein we analyzed the architecture of the legacy VHA data governance framework. Then gave guidance and recommendations that presented a more scalable solution as an enterprise asset that is accurate, usable and functional. Practical use cases and examples of applying the framework in a real-world setting were researched and provided. We made recommendations specifically applicable to VA by analyzing the landscape and interviewing top-level VA Subject Matter Experts to gain firsthand knowledge of current issues. The JPSys experts weighed the input received and delivered a solution on how to achieve operational access to the data.
