Job Description:

Defense Manpower Data Center

The Defense Manpower Data Center requires Business and Data Architecture services related to Virtual Lifetime Electronic Records (VLER) and Integrated Electronic Health Record (iEHR) initiatives. The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) and the Department of Defense (DoD) have been partnering to meet the President's April 09, 2009 mandate that "Both Departments [VA and DoD] will work together to define and build a system that will ultimately contain administrative and medical information from the day an individual enters military service throughout their military career, and after they leave the military." As part of these initiatives, SRA leads DoD’s effort to resolve duplicate identities, both with DoD and between DoD and VA systems.

DMDC is currently using the IBM Initiate tool product for both probabilistic search and duplicate person identification/resolution/prevention. This tool is a core element of the planned VLER architecture between DoD/MHS and VA, with a major new phase soon to begin that will unify the DoD and VA Initiate implementations into “One Initiate”. Although the Initiate tool will help identify duplicate identities within the DoD and VA patient populations, there are tremendous patient safety issues associated with merging false duplicates who are not, in fact, the same person. As such, the Initiate algorithm generates “clerical manual review tasks” for any potential duplicates for whom the level of certainty is below a defined threshold. Human “clerical reviewers” Analysts must individually review the underlying identity and demographic data for each pair of potential duplicate patients and make the determination as to whether the two people identities should be merged or un-linked. (“clerical reviewers”)The Analyst will to work through the queue of clerical manual review tasks generated by the Initiate toolproduct. They will examine the underlying identity and demographic data for each pair of potential duplicate patients and make the determination whether the two patient identities should be merged or un-linked. Reviewers will utilize Initiate’s Inspector COTS tool as well as DMDC’s in-house tools such as Person Finder, QA Tools, etc
