2019 Winner: FedHealth IT Innovation Awards

IBA is proud to announce that the Defense Health Agency (DHA) Solution Delivery Division (SDD) Agile Playbook was selected as one of this year’s FedHealthIT Innovation Award winners.

The SDD Agile Playbook, available on milSuite, is a collaborative network for sharing knowledge on Agile development methodologies and practices across DHA. Knowledge sharing is critical for growth in advancing DHA’s maturation within the Agile framework. Since 2012, IBA has supported DHA to implement Agile across multiple programs and project teams to enable rapid development and deployment of high-quality products and services.  The SDD Agile Playbook, created by IBA’s Agile Coach and Agile practitioners, helps permeate and sustain Agile principles and practices across the enterprise.

“I want to thank SDD for providing IBA with an opportunity to support its Agile program for the past seven years”, said Quinn Smith, Director of Operations for IBA. “This award recognizes the Agile Playbook as an innovative tool that leverages technology to improve knowledge sharing across DHA. We’re honored to continue our partnership with SDD on this project”. IBA Vice President of Technology, Cleveland Cooke, added, “IBA continues to support and provide value to our customers by drawing on our rich experience of working with the Federal Government using both waterfall and Agile techniques—and everything in between.”

The FedHealth Innovation Awards is an annual event comprised of Federal Health leaders from the Government and industry who are brought together to recognize the leading Federal Health programs from across the Department of Veterans Affairs, Military Health, the Department of Health and Human Services, and the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services. This event celebrates these programs and the accomplishments they bring to delivering innovative and effective solutions. The FedHealth IT Innovation Award winners are made up of programs that are the driving forces helping agencies achieve greater transformation and enhanced interoperability.
