KRM Associates Inc. has been performing work in various capacities for the Department of Veterans Affairs for over a decade. Our experiences include network security and engineering services, web development, medical consulting, and more.
In conjunction with an Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) Comparative Effectiveness Research (CER) project, KRM created a sophisticated C32 parser for the Indian Health Service’s Resource Patient and Management System (RPMS), which retrieved and parsed C32 records
KRM configured and installed the EHR solution along with modifications required to interface an Open Source product called Clearhealth to be utilized for patient registration. This process involved modifying the basic EHR application and developing an HL7 interface to feed data into the EHR from the Patient Registration GUI.
KRM was tasked to design, document, implement and operate a HISD Medical Device Security Assessment Center (MeDSAC) for VA test purposes.
KRM provided 24/7 support for the Security Operations Center for VA. KRM provided support to monitor computer and network traffic, and analyzed network traffic activity and systems logs to determine causes of problems and security breaches
