Health Systems Integration

Force Health and Readiness

This program focuses on the deployed health and readiness mission of the services, optimizing delivery of care in operational settings and supporting sustainment of medically ready and ready medical forces. It endeavors to engineer highly reliable systems of health and health care by promoting data-driven approaches to policy and management, systematically identifying and removing sources of unwarranted variation in care settings, and safely integrating technology and human behavior through transdisciplinary teams and safety science.
