Veterans Health Administration (VHA), Office of Health Information (OHI)
GTC's consultants supported the development of the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) Enterprise Architecture through our engagement of the Veterans Health Administration (VHA), Office of Health Information (OHI), Health Systems (HS), Business Architecture Service (BA), Business Process Architecture (BPA) group. BPA develops models and related architectural elements that provide the business the information necessary for the development of effective business requirements specification and business solutions.
These architecture and design artifacts document As-Is and To-Be business functions, sub-functions, capabilities and applications. The artifacts also assist in planning for the transition from As-Is to To-Be, represent their relationships to one another and their relationships to business processes, SOA services, and information entities. GTC's personnel utilized a model-led requirements approach to validate and elaborate business requirements as well as capture the details necessary to create artifacts that link processes back to the systems and functions that utilize them. Our consultants accomplished this by documenting business requirements graphically using Business Process Modeling Notation (BPMN) to create a representation of current and desired health triggers, activities and data inputs/outputs.
The work we did provided the context and content for categorizing, planning, and aligning business processes, information models and business requirements. It also enabled the building of technology through foundational support of the VHA mission, vision, and goals by providing architectural representation that allows business executives and portfolio managers to make better and more informed decisions regarding IT requirements and acquisition.Back To Projects
