VA needs support increasing VistA Imaging demands

The Veterans Affairs Department released a sources sought notice to find companies that are capable of handling its expanding VistA Imaging system and related services.

VA officials are considering a three-year indefinite-delivery, indefinite quantity. The VA anticipates to make an award in the second quarter of 2015.

VistA Imaging is the VA-developed picture archive and communications system and is the mandated record for all medical image storage across the department. VistA Imaging has helped VA medical facilities’ electronic health records become paperless and filmless.

In the recent years, the VA has had a 15 percent annual growth rate in images, and it’s required to keep patients’ images for 75 years. As a result, the department needs to regularly review its storage system to meet the expanding storage needs.

The IDIQ will require a total, integrated VistA Imaging Tier I Core Lifecycle Refresh solution to include hardware, software, documentation, and incidental services. In addition, the IDIQ will require services such as management, planning, installation, data migration, testing, training, warranty and maintenance services, disaster recovery, and technical engineering services.

The VA released a request for information Oct. 27. Responses are due by Nov. 3.
