The IHS Health Information Technology Modernization Research Project – Technical Assessment of RPMS​

Event Details
November 27, 2018 - 3:00pm - 4:00pm

The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Office of the Chief Technology Officer (OCTO), in cooperation with the Indian Health Service (IHS), has awarded a contract to Emerging Sun, with subcontracts to Pistis LLC and Regenstrief Institute, to conduct a multifactorial analysis of the opportunities for modernization of the health information systems that support clinical and business operations of IHS, Tribal, and Urban Indian health programs across the country.

One facet of this project involves an expert technical assessment of the legacy systems in use at IHS, specifically the Resource and Patient Management System (RPMS). The purpose of this interactive webinar will be to invite attendees to share their thoughts about what a modernized technology stack for RPMS would look like, what development and transitional challenges could be expected, and any comparable efforts that could inform the work of the technical assessment team.
