National Security Implications and the Healthcare Structure—Accenture Video

As Jim Traficant, Managing Director for Accenture Federal Services and President of ASM Research, points out in this Federal News Radio panel, there is a critical link between healthcare and national security—especially when you consider the force readiness of our military. The Military Health System (MHS) faces unique healthcare challenges as it provides important care for a military community that spans the globe. One such challenge is ensuring that health data travels with injured service men and women as they move off of the battlefield and transition back to private life. Healthcare informatics and a connected framework can help to sustain the health of our fighting force, enabling healthcare providers to deliver insight-driven care wherever our military community needs it. Watch the video here of the Federal News Radio panel featuring Jim Traficant as well as Dr. Kaveh Safavi, Healthcare Global Managing Director at Accenture; Stan Huff, Chief Medical Informatics Officer of Intermountain Healthcare; and Dr. Bart Harmon, President of Clinical Informatics Experts discussing the topics of healthcare and national security.
