Military Healthcare Conference

Alexandria, VA, United States

Preparing for and Treating the Unknown

The Military Healthcare System provides healthcare to active duty, US veterans and their dependents. In the President's 2019 budget request of $50.6 billion, the money will go towards medical treatment for about 1.4 million active duty military personnel. Under the NDAA, the DoD pushed for a more centralized healthcare system - in 2013, the DHA superseded TRICARE benefits and years later, ultimately began to take command and control of the Army, Air Force & Navy treatment facilities.

Military Healthcare 2019 will provide a rare platform to share and discuss solutions and strategies for the way ahead. By covering a wide array of topics, from maintaining a medically ready and medically prepared force, accessibility to healthcare for efficient and effective treatment, advancing telehealth and telemedicine technologies and taking a closer look into the medical supply chain, we can ensure that the needs of the military healthcare community are met.

Seize the opportunity to collaborate with your peers and to support the current and future requirements of our medical stakeholders as they commit to continuously improve healthcare delivery to our troops and their families!
