U--Health Services Platform Advocacy & Coordinating Group

Department of Veterans Affairs, VA Center for Acquisition Innovation (Washington) | Published August 4, 2015  -  Deadline August 13, 2015

REQUEST FOR INFORMATION Health Services Platform Advocacy and Coordinating Group and Open-Source Agent Background Under the VistA Evolution program, Department of Veterans Affairs Central Office (VACO) will work with developer and content communities towards a strong technical foundation for its clinical information management systems. It will continue to strengthen the parts of VistA that are relevant to electronic health record (EHR) functions, through engagement with the open source community and agents such as the Open Source EHR Agent. It is also pursuing a strategy to place VistA in an open-source health services platform (HSP). VA seeks an entity that can help promote the approach through managing definition of reference architecture and standards for service interfaces and content consumption. An HSP adds data processing and services that provide intelligence to a traditional EHR. The EHR is one of the technical components of a HSP. Other components include longitudinal data stores, data access technologies, and services. Services may include messaging, complex event processing, business process management, business activity monitoring, terminology services, ontology services, and natural language processing. These services may be combined with other applications and a user interface to provide clinical functions for decision support and clinical process support. VA is developing an HSP called Enterprise Health Management Platform (eHMP). eHMP will have all of the services listed above. eHMP also includes a user-experience platform. The user-experience platform will allow development of "applets" that draw on server-side applications and services. The goal is to provide knowledge resources and an intelligent informatics platform to enable the transformation necessary to support the Vista Evolution program. Necessary capabilities include knowledge in terms of ontologies, guideline/care pathway models, and clinical decision rules. The joint work will develop applications and suites of applications to provide scalable, knowledge-driven, context-aware functionality for the Vista Evolution Program to facilitate the following tasks with approximate milestone years: " by FY 2016: coordinated care and care continuity including transitions across venues of care " by FY 2017: coordinated care integrating patient-generated data into care process " by FY 2018: conformance with care pathways and guidelines, and aggregation of performance and outcome data that facilitate population management and provider/practice optimization as well as individual patient status assessment Standards Promotion VA desires to work with an organization that can promote HSP and related standards with the following characteristics and activities: " Healthcare providers, not IT vendors, lead the organization to focus the industry on facilitating the administration and delivery of healthcare " The organization helps define a reference architecture and variants for the HSP " The organization helps define open standards for services within the HSP to exchange information " The organization helps define open standards for consumption of content and services from outside the HSP " The organization helps define use cases for healthcare delivery that drive the technical design of the HSP " The organization works with national standards groups such as Office of the National Coordinator, Object Modeling Group, HL7 to promote HSP and its standards Partnered Development of Open-Source Platform An underlying premise is that the above and related tasks can best be accomplished by establishing an open-source project and a standards-based tiered execution environment where the data structures, knowledge resources, and Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) services of the intermediate tiers can be the subject of on-going development and refinement, and where the environment can also be used to facilitate the development and testing of applications. This will also provide a resource that can be used by multiple stakeholders to enable the VA and VistA Evolution program to address cross-platform care integration and coordination goals. As such, the joint work will also address the following tasks: " a tiered development and testing environment with ability to create experimental test beds for new resources and services " an application modeling framework for knowledge-driven configuration and orchestration of app components and workflows " a set of knowledge resources for supporting the application tasks " a set of test data for testing of applications The desired outcome to be delivered no later than the end of FY 2018 is a shared, open-source set of services based on: " Knowledge-Based Orchestration " Workflow and " Guideline-Based Reasoning Framework and Services. Questions 1. What currently instantiated organizations with the desired cross-organization affiliations and thought leadership can meet all or most of the characteristics above? a. How do they meet them? b. What membership/relationships do such organizations have with healthcare institutions that allow these organizations to lead decisions? c. What membership/relationships do such organizations have with vendors of EHRs, SaaS, PaaS and content that would facilitate commercial uptake or interface with the defined HSP and standards? d. Which organization would best meet VA needs? 2. What do you recommend the VA do: a. To promote reference architecture and technical standards for its HSP? b. To ensure that VA can use an open-source commercialized HSP for itself instead of its own custom eHMP. (We are looking for an answer that allows us to merge eHMP with other efforts. However, we are open to other alternatives and proposed solutions.) 3. What organizations also have capability to be an open-source agent and host a dev/test environment for a reference instantiation of an HSP? a. Given statutory constraints, how would VA interact with this agent to promote VA interests? b. How would VA interact with this agent to merge its eHMP work with a reference HSP with components from others? NOTE: This is NOT a Request for Proposal (RFP). It is not to be construed as a formal solicitation or any obligation on the part of the Government to acquire any services. Any information provided to the Government is strictly voluntary and will be provided at no cost to the Government. For the purpose of this RFI, the NAIC code is 813920. All responses and any questions may be submitted to the Contract Specialist, Priscilla Lee via e-mail: Priscilla.Lee@va.gov before August 13, 2015. Also, interested organizations may submit their capabilities and qualifications to the Contract Specialist.

Denver Tour

Department of the Treasury, United States Mint (USM) | Published May 6, 2016  -  Deadline June 3, 2016

The U.S. Mint seeks to upgrade its public tour displays at its Denver facility. The Denver Mint is open to the public during set hours where visitors can observe coins being produced. The Denver Mint is located in the heart of downtown at an excellent and convenient location-across from the Colorado State Capitol building. Because of the Denver Mint's location, the U.S. Mint is presented with a perfect opportunity to showcase how coins are made, to educate tourists about the history of coins and to properly present a positive image of the Federal government. The Denver Mint tour has become very stagnant and requires improvement and development. With only minor and cosmetic upgrades to exhibits and the building infrastructure, the Denver Mint tour has only had tenant renovations since it opened in 1906. While the Denver tour still attracts approximately 42,500 visitors per year, the exhibits are not compelling. In the current environment, visitors to facilities offering public tours expect bright, dynamic and informative displays. They also expect video presentations and interactive exhibits, especially for children. Visitors to a government facility should also experience a feeling of confidence in the agency that they are visiting. In the case of the Denver Mint, visitors should depart the tour feeling confident in an agency that plays a key role in the functioning of the nation's economy. We believe the potential to improve and tell a compelling story here to be exponential. Although there is a viewing area on the current tour that allows visitors to see coins being manufactured, the viewing area does not provide insight into the entire process. In essence, the process is truncated and the full coin-making process is not provided. The U.S. Mint seeks to install a range of exhibits that would make the public tour route more exciting, engaging and informative-and to provide a fuller perspective of the coin-making process. Static, inter-active and audio/video-based displays are envisioned.

THIS DETERMINATION MUST BE SUPPORTED WITH FULL JUSTIFICATION FOR SOLE SOURCE FROM THE CUSTOMER. WHEN THE CUSTOMER DESCRIBES AN ITEM WITH A PURCHASE DESCRIPTION WHICH LIMITS THE AVAILABILITY TO ONE SOURCE, THE JUSTIFICATION MUST EXPLAIN WHY THE ITEM IS THE ONLY ONE THAT WILL MEET THE GOVERNMENT'S REQUIREMENT. STATEMENTS SUCH AS "ONLY KNOWN SOURCE" OR "ONLY SOURCE WHICH CAN MEET THE REQUIRED DELIVERY DATE" ARE INADEQUATE TO SUPPORT A SOLE SOURCE PURCHASE. THE CUSTOMER SHALL PROVIDE THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION: PURCHASE REQUEST OR REQUISITION NUMBER PROJECT/TASK NUMBER ESTIMATED AMOUNT 2116446PCZ031 $15,000.00 BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF SUPPLIES OR SERVICES REQUIRED, AND THE INTENDED USE: This purchase provides high end controller hardware and support software needed to complete the final PXIe test computer. Each of the PXIe's are legally required to have its own support software and licensed program. This third and final purchase will complete the upgrade of the collection of aging automated test units used by C3CEN ERF Automated Test Equipment (ATE) Section. UNIQUE CHARACTERISTICS THAT LIMIT AVAILABILITY TO ONLY ONE SOURCE, WITH THE REASON NO OTHER SUPPLIES OR SERVICES CAN BE USED: The Electronics Repair Facility (ERF) has invested over $100,000.00 dollars in National Instruments PXI ATE consoles. The products requested for in this PR are peripheral devices for a PXI ATE console made by National Instruments (OEM). National Instruments retains proprietary and copy rights and is the sole source authority. The ERF's existing National Instruments PXI test equipment platforms are identical to each other, which means that the code written on one PXI may be successfully deployed to all our PXI testers with a high confidence of identical outcomes in all our circuit card tests. This same concept has to apply to any new PXI device we purchase-it needs to match the existing PXI systems we obtained in 2010 and 2012. Strange incompatibility failures could be introduced if we choose to use non- N.I. components and we could waste a lot of time and money troubleshooting the test device instead of troubleshooting circuit cards for the fleet. In an electronics troubleshooting, fault analysis environment, uncertainty introduced by the test equipment must be eliminated and replaced by the confidence instilled by a compatible configuration of like components- for example, any component "A" of PXI-1 could be immediately swapped for component "A" of PXI-2 with no difference in performance. Only by utilizing hardware and software from National Instruments are we guaranteed to have no configuration conflicts-allowing us to concentrate on our core mission of circuit card repair. The C3CEN ERF ATE Section has had highly successful results utilizing the PXI systems; National Instruments provides outstanding after- purchase support through their web site, discussion forums, regular software updates, engineer help lines and on-site tech assist visits. We believe the ERF will be successful in the future because we buy test equipment that meets our needs today and will surpass our expectations tomorrow. The U.S. Coast Guard made a wise choice to invest in National Instruments, and we wish to continue ensuring future success by using the products which have proven to be successful. REASON THAT SUGGESTED SOURCE IS THE ONLY SOURCE WHICH CAN PROVIDE THE SUPPLIES OR SERVICES: Market research as prescribed in FAR Part 10 was conducted by the Contracting Officer's Technical Representative. The Internet was searched using part numbers and item names for a list of manufacturers/vendors that could provide automated test equipment and no other brand/substitute could meet the OEM specification. EXPLAIN WHY AN ADEQUATE PURCHASE DESCRIPTION OR OTHER INFORMATION SUITABLE TO SOLICIT BY FULL AND OPEN COMPETITION HAS NOT BEEN DEVELOPED OR ARE NOT AVAILABLE: The products requested for in this PR are peripheral devices for a PXI ATE console made by National Instruments (OEM). National Instruments retains proprietary and copy rights and is the sole source authority. Adequate item information, documentation, and specifications are not available to develop an appropriate purchase description for full and open competition. The estimated cost of researching a new automated test equipment platform and replacing the current ERF ATE platform, is unreasonable and cost prohibitive. PROVIDE A STATEMENT OF ACTIONS, IF ANY, THE GOVERNMENT MAY TAKE TO REMOVE OR OVERCOME ANY BARRIERS TO COMPETITION BEFORE FUTURE ACQUISITIONS ARE REQUIRED: Recommend no actions be taken at this time to overcome barriers barring full and open competition.
