IN THE IT PIPELINE WHAT: The Justice Department is on the hunt for contractors that could support its network defense organization, called the Justice Security Operations Center. WHY: According to a recent “sources sought” notice, JSOC needs assistance in conducting vulnerability testing on Justice Department networks, which involves identifying security flaws before the bad guys do. Such testing helps harden net- works and provides material for certifying network security as required by law. Prospective contractors should be able to provide penetration testing, incident response, defensive assess- ments and intelligence services. Intelligence includes reports on existing attack methods used by cyber adversaries and analysis to identify systems and nodes that have been compromised by previous attacks. Finally, the department is seeking companies that can monitor cloud environments, whether maintained by the government and by commercial service providers. VERBATIM: “Vulnerabilities are considered any process, policy, procedure, hardware or software exploit, or net- work design flaw that can degrade an organization’s ability to secure the [confi- dentiality, integrity, and avail- ability] of information.” FULL NOTICE: is.gd/FCW_JSOC At the Department of Veterans Affairs, interoperability is a big part of the push to modernize its homegrown Veterans Health Information Systems and Tech- nology Architecture, which is why offi- cials are set to begin testing a spiffy new interface called the Enterprise Health Management Platform (eHMP). The interface is designed to share data with the Defense Department’s current health records and operate in conjunction with a new commercial system DOD is expected to announce this summer. The eHMP system also seeks to give VA caregivers access to all patient records across facilities and enable the use of advanced computa- tional tools. Under the current system, medi- cal records are tethered to individual facilities. Although caregivers across the VA system can view patient data, the system doesn’t work with remote data except for a few functions, such as drug-interaction warnings, said David Waltman, a senior adviser to VA’s undersecretary for health. The Web-based eHMP uses modular applets or widgets that provide infor- mation on clinical encounters, patients’ vital signs, medications, lab results, allergies and medical conditions. Health care providers can customize the view, which is flexible enough to allow doctors to track specific con- ditions and get short- and long-term views of patient care. Dr. Neil Evans, co-director of the VA’s Connected Health program, said those capabilities are useful because a medical provider might want to chart a patient’s history during an office visit, and a hospital patient might have multiple streams of data accumulat- ing quickly that need to be understood and addressed. As the VA has done with other health-related software, it developed eHMP in-house on an open-source basis. The system features a search function that runs queries across struc- tured and unstructured data powered by the Apache Software Foundation’s open-source search tool Lucene. The VA is releasing a software development kit so developers can build apps to run on eHMP. The system’s design is similar to the Joint Legacy Viewer DOD and VA developed as a bridge to full interoper- ability between their systems. Heavy JLV users will be among the first to have access to eHMP. — Adam Mazmanian VA set to test new health record interface is the data transfer speed reached by Google’s Jupiter network 1 petabit/sec July 15, 2015 FCW.COM 9 Join the conversation FCW uses Twitter to break news, field questions and ask our own.
