Coordinating a Connected Health IT Environment for Military and Government

Held since 2011, DSI’s  Health IT Summits are a unique forum that allows for personnel from DoD, VA, Federal and State agencies to convene in one location along with leaders from Industry and Academia that support them.

As the healthcare industry continues to evolve to better suit the needs of the patient, the role of information technology will continue to be an integral part in the efforts to link innovative IT solutions with advanced lines of communication to achieve a patient centered health system that focuses on enhancing delivery of healthcare.

Although delivering military health care in an efficient and cost-effective manner is important, the goal is to first and foremost build a health care system focusing on improving the overall the health of the patient. In the efforts to support this health care system, tremendous strides have been made from multiple organizations ranging from the DoD, VA, Government Agencies, Private Industry, and Academia.

The 2017 May DoD/VA and Government Health IT Summit will provide valuable information on the current and prospective efforts supported by the U.S. Government to transform healthcare and healthcare delivery through innovative IT solutions.

DSI’s team specializes in the extensive research and development of our symposium's content and focus areas, and we will assemble the most respected minds in the community from senior healthcare leaders, the IT community, key policy-makers, as well as solution providers from industry and academia. Our non-partisan approach allows us to reach across all involved organizations bring together a truly holistic group of decision makers and solution providers.
