VistA Education Meeting - New VistA Class At SUNY Albany

Luis Ibanez | OSEHRA | February 25, 2014

New York State is currently performing the largest deployment of VistA in the United States (outside of the Department of Veterans Affairs).  This development is taking place at the Office of Mental Health (OMH), and it is bringing together State Government, Industry and Academia in an open and agile collaborative environment, creating the perfect conditions for promoting the growth of the VistA open source community.

This deployment is being performed by CGI, under a contract valued at US$48.7 million, over four years with two additional option years. Joining the CGI team in this effort are VistA experts DSS Inc., and healthcare IT leader NTT Data (see CGI’s press release).

OMH is one of the nation's largest healthcare delivery organizations, with dozens of facilities across New York State.
