Why you should attend the Summit:

The May 2018 DoD/VA and Gov. Health IT Summit will provide a full spectrum view towards the DoD, VA and Federal Government's efforts at improving a connected health IT ecosystem. Our invited speakers will provide key insight on their organization's current and future efforts to transform healthcare and the delivery of healthcare through innovative IT solutions and strategies.

Meeting the diverse IT needs required to support the Military Healthcare System is a complex task that requires strong leadership and collaborative efforts across DoD, VA, Government Agencies, Private Industry and Academia. As the MHS supports nearly 10 million service members and family members, it is imperative to highlight the efforts of the Federal HIT community in order to better support MHS beneficiaries. This summit will focus on the efforts to develop and integrate IT technologies and informatics strategies that foster a data driven, patient centered MHS.

Our team specializes in the extensive research and development of our summit'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.

*The Summit is neither officially endorsed or sanctioned by the Depts of VA and DoD.

  • Gain Education & Insight:  Walk away with knowledge gained from our senior level speakers on some of the complex challenges facing communications and networking leaders.
