How Healthcare Interoperability and Modernization are Thriving at VA

Posted by Mary Carroll on May 22, 2018 3:27:54 PM

Whether it is a solo medical practice, rural hospital, or massive health system, sharing medical data securely between the complicated web of electronic health records (EHRs) is an ongoing challenge that both big and small healthcare providers face. As one of the largest health care delivery systems in America, interoperability is not a new concept at the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). In fact, in VA facilities enterprise-wide, our Veterans are benefiting from healthcare interoperability that is happening on a massive scale not only within the agency, but also with Department of Defense (DoD) facilities around the globe. Clinical data exchange between VA and DoD has been ongoing in some form or another since the early 2000s, but a major overhaul in 2016 replaced legacy data sharing services with a state-of-the-art, HL7 FHIR-based system which makes DoD clinical data from around the world easily accessible to VA clinicians in their existing desktop applications

  1. New Patent Enhances Medical Diagnosis

In August 2015, Ellumen Inc. received a patent entitled “Dielectric Encoding of Medical Images” (Patent No. 9,111,334 B2) awarded to inventors Todd R. McCollough and William J. McCollough. The issued patent was for an innovative method which allowed physicians to easily interpret medical images created using microwave data. The science team is continuing to improve its technology and will be awarded an additional, divisional patent for the enhancement of that same technology which provides a cost-effective technique for encoding dielectric images into familiar forms. The patent involves the conversion of microwave signals to MRI or CT-type medical images familiar to medical professionals and will be awarded on July 11th, 2017 (Patent No. 9,704,275).
