Client

Walter Reed Army Medical Center (WRAMC) Directorate of Information Management (DOIM)

Description

WRAMC was the Army’s largest health care facility and one of the largest in the Department of Defense (DoD). The installation encompassed approximately 113 acres and the facility served as headquarters for the Northern Region Medical Command (NRMC). WRAMC employed more than 8,000 military, civilian, and contractor personnel, and had more than 600,000 visits a year to its main hospital and satellite clinics.

The facility provided medical care to active duty personnel, the wounded warrior, retirees and their dependents. It also provided leadership, planning, and support for the 40 Army hospitals and clinics in the region and was responsible for about 25 percent of the Army’s patient load in the United States. The DOIM provided direct and indirect support for over 17,000 users in 13 NRMC military treatment facilities.

The Challenge

As a result of Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC), the facility was required to migrate operations to the National Naval Medical Center (NNMC) and the newly established Ft. Belvoir Community Hospital (FBCH). WRAMC required a fundamental approach to accurately identify and rationalize the nearly 730 systems and applications that provide support.

The Solution

tiag’s identification of the intricacies and interdependencies of each system enabled the creation of a comprehensive migration plan that established a prioritized and systematic process for the movement of each system and interrelated data-sets. tiag established a centralized portal to provide complete visibility and tracking of the discovery and identification of each system.

To support the fulfillment of the migration, our team architected and implemented a mobile virtual environment to simplify the transition of critical applications to the data-centers at NNMC and FBCH. tiag ensured the absolute minimum level of disruption by provisioning and testing each application through each step of the migration process including virtualization, domain migration, re-ip’ing, and relocation. Each migration included a continuity of operations plan to make certain that in the event of a migration failure services could be quickly restored without loss of data integrity. By utilizing this process, tiag has been able to successful migrate complex systems with limited impact on the service providers and patients.

The Result

tiag provided a fundamental approach to accurately identify and rationalize the nearly 730 systems and applications that provide support. Our team architected and implemented a mobile virtual environment to simplify the transition of critical applications to the data-centers at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center (WRNMMC) and FBCH, ensuring the absolute minimum level of disruption to health care delivery.
