Indian Health Service
Medsphere GSD provides full life cycle development and support for the Indian Health Service’s Resource and Patient Management System (IHS RPMS), which includes just under 400 clinics and hospitals on Native American lands across the country. The primary healthcare provider for American Indians and Alaska Natives, IHS serves roughly 1.5 million people belonging to 557 federally recognized tribes in 35 states. Through ongoing development (MUMPS, Delphi, C#, Java, etc.), interfacing, quality assurance, and maintenance and support, Medsphere GSD has gained valuable and transferrable expertise and developed strong, mutually respectful relationships with IHS leadership, IT staff, clinical practitioners and contractors.
Department of Veterans Affairs
Our established partnership with the Veterans Health Administration (VHA) focuses on interfacing third-party applications with VistA, validation testing for ICD-10 transition and decision support, meaningful use, VistA Evolution and immunization modernization to name a few. For example, as a subcontractor on the Health Administration Product Enhancements (HAPE) ICD-10 Suite Testing project, Medsphere GSD professionals provide project management and network administration for the test system, QA and test engineering services, as well as technical documentation. Medsphere GSD has extensive VistA expertise and has worked with dozens of client technical and clinical teams in delivery, testing, deploying, and supporting VistA and VistA-based interfaces and applications.
Medsphere GSD is considered a trusted and reliable partner by our federal clients.
The Open Source Electronic Health Record Alliance
As a corporate member of OSEHRA, Medsphere GSD contributes innovations to support this community. For example, we recently provided MSC Fileman to OSEHRA to ensure a single file management foundation for VistA and all derivatives going forward.
Medsphere’s graphical interface application utilized is “open source,” which means that all software source code is freely available from an open source provider, foundation, or community.
The Indian Health Service's ability to modify and re-release the software is not restricted by licenses, patents, or other proprietary considerations, with the exception of development tools and toolkits (such as Delphi and C#) that are readily available to any software developer or user on the open market.
