Our national security depends on the readiness of our military, which in turn depends on healthy military families. Ensuring health readiness has been a priority of the U.S. Department of Defense, particularly given the extended deployments of the last decade and the increasing security challenges facing our nation and our armed forces. To revolutionize the Defense Health System, the Secretary of Defense has directed the procurement of a new program that will modernize all facets of defense health IT, the centerpiece of which is a new Electronic Health Record (EHR). This record can remain with the service member from his or her first day in uniform through retirement.
From day one, this system must be fully interoperable with the Veterans Health Administration and with private sector doctors, hospitals, pharmacies, and clinics. It must be adaptable to the wide variety of needs of the millions of service members, retirees, and their families. PwC's unique and innovative open source approach provides the innovation, security, adaptability, and interoperability to meet the needs of defense health agencies.
