  • 1. Shared Services Strategy (based on SOA for Health IT Applications) Paul Aneja Co-Chair Enterprise Architecture CoP Nov 2009 Draft Work in Progress Paul.aneja@state.or.us
  • 2. Motivation: Shared Services in Health IT Informatics EA WG initiated a focus on Shared Services Action Item: Paul Aneja working with Informatics EA WG and Industry experts to lead development of a Shared Services Strategy for Health IT How can Shared Services improve Health IT? Why do we have so many separate or disparate systems? How do we change the paradigm of building separate health systems to reusing shared services? What can we do get started? This presentation builds upon “Strategies for Improving Health IT Architecture Interoperability” and “SOA Foundation” presentations. Health IT Shared Services Strategy 2
  • 3. Current State Future State
  • 4. Current State: Vertical Applications (Separate, Disconnected, Different Architectures, Technologies, Integration is a challenge…) Division “A” Division “B” Division “C” Division “D” Division “E” Health IT Shared Services Strategy 4
  • 5. “Shared Services” in a Future There are common functions across applications Citizens Programs Shared Services Health Partners Federal/CDC Health IT Shared Services Strategy 5

Current State vs. Future Shared Services Impact Current State Shared Services Vertical Applications Vertical Applications Improve Interoperability Improve Interoperability Difficult to share applications Increase sharing Increase sharing Difficult to share applications Functional Duplication Common Functional Services Common Functional Services Functional Duplication Services Oriented Architecture with Services Oriented Architecture with “Point to Point” “Point to Point” Services Bus Services Bus Inconsistent business logic for Inconsistent business logic for Shared services provide consistency Shared services provide consistency same purpose same purpose Minimum Sharing of Applications/Technology Minimum Sharing of Applications/Technology Shared Services Shared Services Investments Investments Different Architectures SOA acts as a Unifying/Overall Architecture SOA acts as a Unifying/Overall Architecture Different Architectures Inefficient – Increases Costs Lower cost over time Lower cost over time Inefficient – Increases Costs Health IT Shared Services Strategy 6

  • 9. Shared Services Strategy Shared Services Strategy Identify Shared Services that can be leveraged Have one National Health Shared Services repository Increase the number of Shared Services over next 2-3 years Actively manage the Shared Services Portfolio Focus on a prioritized set of initial services Adopt, extend and leverage industry SOA and Services standards EA to coordinate shared services across enterprise Work with Federal/industry infrastructure orgs on pilot Training for SOA and services Health IT Shared Services Strategy 9

  • 14. Informatics EA WG Session Feedback on Shared Services (Sept 2009)
  • 15. Top Challenges: Shared Services (from Informatics EA WG) Service vs. System distinctions How to incorporate all services + find commonality Funding – how to creatively fund? No group owns shared services Shared infrastructure – where should it be? Communicating value of Shared Services metrics for ROI Stronger Architecture governance of Shared Services How do we find Services? – Services Repository Alignment across federal, state agencies Some legal issues in sharing Organizational culture and barriers Funding mandates do not match needs How do we share services from other groups, states, federal agencies? Health IT Shared Services Strategy 15
  • 16. Key Interoperability Solutions for Shared Services (from Informatics EA WG) Define Shared Services (reusable) Lifecycle model- bring PH into existing standards efforts Funding models - “user fee model” or transaction–based (infrastructure tax or tolls) Executive ownership – need for tech support to promote sustainability Stronger Architecture governance of Shared Services Indentify common shared services for PH Catalog of services i.e. open registry PHIN/NHIN convergence ( alignment, integration) Communicating value for reusability Retraining to build in use of best practices Open source, usable, technology neutral PH (Public Health) + HC (healthcare) are on the same team Health IT Shared Services Strategy 16
