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 Under the NDAA, the DoD pushed for a more centralized healthcare system – in 2013, the DHA superseded TRICARE benefits and years later, ultimately began to take command and control of the Army, Air Force & Navy treatment facilities.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.
