GovExec Daily: Using AI to Solve Problems in Health Care and Beyond

Ashley Mehta of Nolij Consulting joins the podcast to discuss how technology can be used for better outcomes in public systems.

The COVID-19 pandemic taught many lessons. Perhaps one of the biggest is how much artificial intelligence can help innovate and increase the efficacy of billing and health care records. Agencies like the Department of Health and Human Services and the Defense Department have already used AI to analyze contract and manufacturing information to order PPE during the heart of the pandemic. 

Ashley Mehta is the CEO and founder of Nolij, a firm specializing in federal IT health care. She joined GovExec Daily to discuss how AI can help solve big problems and why she believes now is the the time to take on the private sector.

Nolij Consulting LLC awarded the Department of Homeland Security, U.S. Customs and Border Protection, Test Automation Support Services Task (TASS)

Nolij Consulting LLC, “Nolij”, awarded the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP), Test Automation Support Services Task (TASS), a 4-year contract. Nolij met the challenges of a rigorous multi-phase solicitation process, which included a written proposal, an oral presentation, and a coding challenge to demonstrate end-to-end automation testing. Nolij’s capabilities and expertise beat out 10 highly skilled competitors. This thrilling win demonstrates Nolij’s extensive expertise in the design, development, and deployment of automation frameworks and suites, Agile framework and processes, automation scripting, software testing for enterprise deployments, security compliance, and performance testing. We are excited to support CBP in their mission and efforts and will live up to the demands of this agency. “CBP, thank you for this award. It’s a privilege to be awarded this contract and we’ll work hard every day to support your mission.” says Ashley Mehta, President and CEO of Nolij Consulting, a woman-led consulting business.

Nolij Overcomes Network Hurdles to Make Medical Systems Work Anywhere at Anytime

After completion of a successful project for the Department of Defense, the Nolij contracting officer remarked, “I cannot believe you solved this problem. This is huge!”  What problem did Nolij solve? Nolij had successfully ensured that data moved consistently across an array of gear, equipment and multidomain networks, such as mobile phones and satellites, in different warzone situations. This would allow the US military to provide reliable medical service across the continuum of care to soldiers as they move from the field, to Humvee, helicopter and onto command post hospitals in battlefield situations.

How did Nolij resolve the glitches in DOD’s communication networks? First, Nolij found that the military’s applications and systems were not being rigorously and thoroughly tested with the actual communication equipment used on the field during the development life cycle. For software to be reliable, it requires comprehensive testing in a “real-life” simulated operational testing environment that takes into consideration all possible scenarios and system constraints prior to deployment. This oversight during testing led to the health systems failing when deployed due to the operational environment never being introduced until it was released; thereby, causing a multitude of problems during software deployment such as tactical system failures.

Second, Nolij created a “real life” simulated operation testing environment by leveraging the Joint Network Emulator (JNE), a proprietary communications
simulation and network emulator jointly developed by DoD and EXata, that lets you evaluate on-the-move communication networks quickly and realistically. Our engineers worked with the armed services to emulate a soldier’s treatment in a warzone in different battlefield situations. Our team of system and test engineers then began to configure the JNE emulation package with all the environmental and system constraints we had discovered. After configuring JNE we then tied our emulation to our onsite network equipment, allowing us to test software in the intended deployed environment.

Third, we first ran our EXata environment on a mobile health application. The results were outstanding and the team was able to identify with precision where the software was failing or having integration issues. This knowledge demonstrated software behavior to our clients before it was shared with the development team. This allowed developers to begin mitigating problems while the testing was still occurring, which led to a faster feedback loop. For the first time in Military Health System history, software was being tested within the operational environmental situation and configuration as it exists in the field.

Since the successful deployment of this multidomain battlefield network simulation, Nolij has perfected their EXata expertise to deliver superior testing
environments to help clients resolve difficult technology challenges.
