This coming Tuesday on August 28, the 5th Annual Warfighter Support IT Day will feature a high caliber panel focused on health IT. The panelists are experts in their field, and – of special interest to our readers – experts in the future iEHR (Integrated Electronic Health Record), a joint project spearheaded by the VA and DoD.

Hailed as one of the most significant health IT initiatives to date, the iEHR's success “is critical to the White House,” and sparked the creation of the IPO (Interagency Program Office) so that leading experts – in fact, many of the panelists who will be present at the conference – could oversee and guide the project.

The health IT panelists are listed below:

  • James B. Peake, MD, LTG (Ret) Moderator, SVP at CGI Federal, former Secretary of Veterans Affairs at the Department of Veterans Affairs, and former Surgeon General at United States Army. 
  • Barclay P. Butler, Ph. D., Director of Interagency Program Office (IPO).
  • Captain Michael Weiner, Director of Clinical Informatics at Interagency Program Office (IPO).
  • Susan Perez, Program Manager, Integrated Electronic Health Record (iEHR), DoD/VA Interagency Program Office (IPO). 
  • Seong K. Mun, MD, PhD, President of OSEHRA (Open Source Electronic Health Record Agency).

Hosted by the AFCEA NOVA, the event will take place at the Sheraton Premiere in Vienna, Virginia, from 8am to 5pm. The theme for this year is “Technology Strengthening Warfighter Capabilities and Cyber Ops.”

There are only a few days left to register, so don't wait until the last minute! At the conference, you will hear from a variety of Defense organizations that provide combat IT and systems support to the warfighter, interact with senior DoD leaders as they discuss current issues and goals behind warfighter IT support, and much more. The conference is a “must-attend” for those who “do business with Defense Department Agencies, Combatant Commands and other warfighting support organizations.”

This is a great opportunity to learn more about the vision of the DoD, keep up-to-date on business and networking opportunities, and discover more information about the major Warfighter Support programs, including health IT programs.
