MHS CIO – Standardizing, Modernizing, Securing Health IT

10:30am - 11:30am Tuesday, February 12
Orlando - Orange County Convention Center
W304E

Description

To achieve our IT modernization priorities, DHA needs to move to a more secure, agile, and cost effective infrastructure predominantly provided by shared services. This session will examine how, as the DHA CIO, a primary focus is driving standardization across our enterprise to improve the performance and affordability of health information technology operations and enable centralized management capabilities throughout the Military Health System. Implementing the Desktop to Datacenter – or D2D program – is a critical step in streamlining health information technology infrastructure service lines across the MHS enterprise. Cybersecurity is a huge concern, especially for DoD as a target for national security and health care information. This is a time of tremendous opportunity for improving continuity of care for our highly mobile beneficiaries who often receive care from DoD, VA and private sector health care delivery partners.
