Health IT/HIE Architect

Company: TEKsystems
Location: Portland
Posted on: February 21, 2021

Job Description:

The Department "is issuing this Request for Proposals (RFP) to solicit proposals from qualified vendors to provide Project Management (PM) and Health Information Exchange technical (HIE) services to assist the Department in the implementation of our territorial HIE to be known as the Virgin Islands Health Information Exchange (VIHIE).

GVI and DHS are pleased to continue the work we began back on February 7, 2018 when the HHS-USVI -Data Informed Work Group- was established and convened with local stakeholders by the Office of the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response (ASPR), with support from CDC, CMS, HRSA and other HHS agencies.

Our Provider Landscape includes two (2) public hospitals, two (2) Department of Health (DOH) operated clinics, and two (2) Federally Qualified Healthcare Centers (FQHCs). In addition, there are approximately 300 individual healthcare providers, seventeen (17) pharmacies and six (6) labs have been identified across the three islands.

USVI's capacity to create a 21st century health system in the USVI that provides the residents of the USVI a comprehensive system of healthcare delivery that is also sustainable and resilient to natural or man-made disasters. There is growing realization though that consumers rely on many resources, beyond doctors and nurses, for their health. For example, they rely on social workers, nutritionists, pharmacists, fitness centers, and social interaction with family and friends, caregivers and others. When these -providers- are not connected, it is a prescription for frustration, burnout, high costs and suboptimal outcomes.

The USVI has the opportunity to build a new, patient centered, 21st century, health ecosystem that enables providers and patients to stay connected to the information, people and services they need, anytime day or night, to become healthy or stay well. Building a secure and sustainable technical infrastructure enables care providers and the community to stay connected and exchange patients' electronic health information supporting informed, person-centered care.
