VA to update health care systems

The Veterans Affairs Department has put out a draft request for proposals to modernize the Veterans Health Information Systems and Technology Architecture.

The architecture for VistA, which hosts more than 100 applications and runs at 140 VA health care facilities nationwide, is too rigid, according to the department. VA wants to add functions to create an open-systems platform that will make it easier to adopt commercial software and adjust systems when VA makes changes in its business processes.

The announcement posted on FedBiz

Opps replaces a notice that VA issued and then pulled in May. The new notice requires vendors to resubmit their responses if they replied to the earlier request for information.
