Department of Veterans Affairs’ VA Profile Program Recognized with FedHealthIT Disruptive Tech Award

ARLINGTON, VA, September 15, 2020 – Halfaker and Associates, LLC (Halfaker), a technology solutions provider within the Federal Government’s health, intelligence, defense, and security sectors is proud to share that the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) / Veterans Experience Office (VEO) – VA Profile Program has been selected to receive a 2020 FedHealthIT Disruptive Tech Award. Honoring IT leaders who are transforming Federal information technology, this award acknowledges key programs that have successfully used positive disruption to improve mission delivery.

As a cornerstone of VA modernization, the VA Profile Program establishes the first ever 360-degree view of the Veteran record—empowering Veterans to maintain greater control over their personal information while offering VA service providers the real-time visibility they need to make reliable healthcare and benefits-related decisions faster. By synchronizing previously siloed Veteran information across multiple VA systems and applications, VA Profile eliminates duplicative data entry and time-consuming, manual update processes for both Veterans and service providers alike. Additionally, the program’s use of a cutting-edge technical integration framework uses automation to maximize service uptime and creates a paradigm for positive disruption that VA can reuse across future modernization initiatives to drive scalability, resilience, and speed.

“We are pleased to congratulate the VA Profile team on this significant achievement,” said CEO, Dawn Halfaker. “We are privileged to support the VA in building disruptive solutions that improve vital service delivery and Veteran experience in efficient and scalable ways.”

The Department of Veterans Affairs will accept the award at the G2Xchange/FedHealthIT “Disruptive Tech Awards: Programs Shifting the Landscape” virtual event scheduled for September 16, 2020.
