Presented by the NVTC Health Technology Committee

The Future of Medical Technology in Civilian Health Care Can Be Seen Today in DoD and VA Applications

Join us for a unique discussion of how applications of advanced technology and health information systems can be transferred from the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) and the U.S. Veterans Administration (VA) environment to the civilian health care industry. Learn how the DoD and the VA use advanced technology to provide quality care for our Wounded Warriors "From the Battlefield to Home." DoD and the VA have developed and utilize the nation's premier health information management systems and technology worldwide. Examples of this cutting-edge technology are integrated electronic health records (EHRs), patient tracking and medical regulating systems, and advanced medical technology systems that are found both on the battlefield and in DoD and VA medical treatment facilities. Learn what challenges DoD and the VA are facing that your company may have a solution to address. DoD and the VA are presently dedicating enormous resources to care for our Wounded Warriors and are always open to innovative solutions. Join the NVTC Health Technology Committee on December 7 to find out more.
