Description: NOAH is a software product and a mobile/tablet application developed by the Hearing Instrument Manufacturers` Software Association (HIMSA) to allow hearing care health care professionals to combine measurement and fitting modules from many different suppliers into one integrated system.

NOAH uses a Microsoft Structured Query Language (SQL) Server database to transmit and store data. The Microsoft SQL Server database can act as a centralized database which has the potential to interface with other VA systems which could allow for the data to be manipulated. The usage of a database with NOAH is optional, and the data can also be stored on a user`s local hard drive. It is unknown if the data stored on the database is encrypted; however, individual user logins and associated privileges are available.

This entry covers the Desktop Edition of this technology and not any mobile versions. Please note that the implementation of mobile technology applications that operate on Mobile Operating Systems must be reviewed and approved by the Mobile Technology and Endpoint Security Engineering Team: http://vaww.eie.va.gov/SysDesign/CS/MT/default.aspx.
