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

Description

Walter Reed Army Medical Center (WRAMC) is the Army’s largest healthcare facility, and one of the largest in the Department of Defense.  The installation encompasses approximately 113 acres, and serves as Headquarters for the Northern Region Medical Command (NRMC).  WRAMC employs more than 8,000 military, civilian, and contractor personnel, and has more than 600,000 visits a year to its main hospital and satellite clinics.  The facility provides medical care to active duty personnel, the wounded warrior, retirees and their dependents.  It also provides leadership, planning, and support for the 40 Army hospitals and clinics in the region, and is responsible for about 25 percent of the Army’s patient load in the United States. The Directorate of Information Management (DOIM) provides direct and indirect support for over 17,000 users in thirteen (13) NRMC Regional Military Treatment Facilities (MTF).

The Challenge

Walter Reed Army Medical Center faces a unique mission in the history of military medicine; the closing of the largest military treatment facility in the Department of Defense (DoD) in support of Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC), the seamless transition of the critical operations of patient care, and the establishment of joint military treatment facilities at the National Naval Medical Center (NNMC) and Ft. Belvoir Community Hospital.

The Solution

tiag SP3M experts have worked closely with the command staffs throughout the WRAMC Directorate of Information Management and the Joint Task Force National Capital Region Medical (JTF CapMed) J-6 to assist in establishing a firm foundation for a successful move.   tiag’s team of experts has played a vital role in the identification, evaluation, and future transition strategy for each application and system currently residing at WRAMC.  Through the WRAMC DOIM, tiag has also worked closely with clinicians to advise the WRAMC and JTF CapMed leadership on the process, sequence, and strategies for moving the systems to the new joint facilities.  In addition, the tiag team has been called upon to provide advice on the design of the future infrastructure supporting Ft. Belvoir and Bethesda.

The Result

tiag has helped to establish a strategic plan that incorporates all aspects of the impending moves and has allowed the government to maintain a proactive posture as related to the migration and closure of the DC campus.  The tiag team has helped establish a risk analysis and abatement procedure to ensure that every application and system identified is accredited, and a migration or end-of-service plan is established.  The experienced SP3M staff has also provided technical guidance and recommendations on the integration of the joint medical treatment facilities, including network, data-center, and unified communications solution requirements. Through tiag’s support and customer dedication a strong foundation has been established to ensure that both the infrastructure and the critical medical systems utilizing it are in place to continue providing superior care to the military community.
