Developing a Connected Health IT Environment for Military and Government

DSIís 14th DoD/VA and Gov Health IT Summit will be held May 2-3, 2018. Held since 2011, DSIís Health IT Summits are a unique forum that allows for personnel from DoD, VA, Federal and State agencies to convene in one location along with leaders from Industry and Academia that support them.

Alexandria, VA, March 30, 2018 --( On May 2-3, 2018, senior leaders within the DoD, VA, Federal and State agencies, industry and academia will convene in Alexandria, VA, for two days of off the record briefings and informal discussions at Defense Strategies Institute’s 14th DoD/VA & Gove Health IT Summit.
