The mission of NIWC is to deliver information warfare solutions that protect national security across communication systems, networking systems, cyber operations, intelligence, surveillance, reconnaissance, business systems, and information security.
When MHS governance reform made integrated, standardized, and shared Health IT an imperative, NIWC–Atlantic required a partner that could provide stalwart engineering support and real-time intelligence across the DHA’s Military Treatment Facilities (MTFs) and their associated medical departments and organizations.
Tailoring our approach and solutions specifically to the combined missions of NIWC and DHA, TIAG provided a full suite of support across business intelligence, clinical intelligence systems engineering, data modeling and integration, health registries systems engineering, information assurance, systems engineering, systems integration, and systems testing for NIWC’s Medical Information Delivery Integrated Project Team. We developed and operated secure applications for analysis and research, dashboards, data collection, and reporting tools. We maintained and modernized their systems and database, provided analytics, training, and help desk support, and added a BI content gallery that promoted content delivery, transparency, and user collaboration across the DHA and VA enterprise. In support of the Clinical Intelligence Systems Engineering task, we provided Health Information Technology subject matter expertise and engineering support, and we advised and assisted system lifecycle management in support of MHS clinical intelligence mission objectives. As a component of clinical information system planning and design, we helped evaluate functional requirements and end user needs and conducted business process and data flow analysis. We also developed applications and dashboards that integrated with the Health Services Data Warehouse (HSDW), and we provided a complete publishing environment for the timely distribution of information to the field, improving decision-making processes while optimizing performance.
Our work with the NIWC had a positive impact on more than 100,000 users across 15 custom medical application web portals and Business Intelligence (BI) tools used by more than 300 MTFs and clinics. This work directly helped the DHA achieve its mission to lead the MHS integration of readiness and health to increase readiness, improve health, better care, and lower costs.
