ProSphere Projects

ProSphere provides IT services for clients such as the Department of Veterans Affairs and the Department of Energy in 24 states nationwide. 

Veterans Benefits Management System-Ratings (VBMS-R)

Veteran Affairs Veterans Benefits Management System (VBMS) was established by VA to replace the manual and paper-based process with one that could scale to handle modern methods, volumes, and expectations of a new generation of deserving Veterans. Ratings is one of several critical components under VBMS that specifically serves as a Veteran’s entry point into the system, and ultimately determines their benefit level.

ProSphere is responsible for all production application deployments that include the latest VBMS release, while managing VBMS Production Operations, to include Tier 3 help desk support. We are successfully implementing our proven Software Development & Engineering methods to develop specifications, conduct Business Requirements Analysis, and Design Analysis, all managed via an Agile Scrum methodology.

Information Technology (IT) and Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA)

ProSphere provides full IT support for Department of Energy, Western Area Power Administration – Rocky Mountain Region (DOE WAPA-RMR) Information Technology and Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) contract. This support includes Tier 1, 2, and 3 Help Desk, Network, Server, and Software Development (planning, design and maintenance). ProSphere performs daily operations of IT infrastructure that include switches, routers, firewalls, servers, backup systems, data storage devices, desktops, laptops, personal data assistants/handheld devices, peripherals, and accessories. Infrastructure support includes providing proactive day-to-day technical support to customers for all hardware and software systems.

Office of Privacy & Records Management (OPRM)

ProSphere maintains and enhances the security and operational efficiency of mission-critical VA IT systems. With our proven expertise in architecting and delivering innovative cloud-based hosting environments, ProSphere provides a highly secure, cloud-based environment within a Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP)-compliant Federal Community Cloud Platform. The delivered environment supports all current software platform components of the OPRM program and allow for rapid and flexible growth to meet future demands.

Veteran Authorization Preference Enhancements (VAPE)

ProSphere provides program management, functional planning, and technical and documentation analysis in support of VAPE. The Veterans Authorizations and Preferences is a tool that allows Veterans to specify who can see their medical records. This enables sharing of patient information, which fosters appropriate clinical decision making and improves patient care. There are more than 22 million eligible Veterans, of whom each can receive care from private providers as well as VA. Those providers vary by specialty and geography, which adds to the complexity and importance of this system. ProSphere takes a strategic view of the major plans and processes needed for the VA to achieve its mission, tailor and adapt systems engineering principles, processes, and concepts to match the scope and complexity of the overall effort while considering VA acquisition regulations, policies, and governance approaches.

Benefits Claims Decision Support (BDCS) System

The Veterans Benefits Administration sought to use predictive models for automating disability claims processing and requests for claims. The Compensation Service initiated research efforts that developed predictive models to forecast disability ratings based on the type of claim, Veteran characteristics, military service, demographic data, previous claims history and ratings, and other key parameters.

ProSphere is tasked with designing, developing, testing, and creating an integrated data analytics and modeling system. This system uses Predictive Analytics based on the results of VA Disability Rating Engineering Notebooks as a starting point in generating ratings for hearing, and musculoskeletal systems. To do this, ProSphere tailors systems engineering principles, processes, and concepts to match the scope and complexity of the overall effort while considering VA acquisition regulations, policies, and governance approaches. We feature a clear plan to execute work requirements while continuously promoting awareness among stakeholders.
