In a Healthcare IT News article earlier this week, contributing writer Jack McCarthy explains how the Department of Defense Health Agency (DHA) is working to modernize its IT infrastructure in order to develop up-to-date, fully-operational IT services for its military health system. David Bowen, CIO for the Military Health System says that these "efforts are on schedule".
This $11 billion spend will help 9.7 million active duty and retired personnel, as well as their dependents. Not only are DHA engineers working to update facilities with infrastructure and wireless technology, but they are also updating their email to a cloud-based system, and making training sessions available online. The goal is to have a centralized IT infrastructure with authentication across server, application, and desktop environments.
According to Bowen,"Our primary goal is to support our medical teams and administrators across the Military Health system with reliable tools to support patient safety, high quality care and access to care when they need it". These tools include mobile devices that will allow for patients diagnosis and lab result access anywhere.
