Health Innovation Month

Pathways to Ready Reliable CareSocial media graphic on Health Innovation Month showing a service member delivering en route care.

Rapid and extensive changes are reshaping today’s health care environment. We are dedicated to staying on the cutting-edge of military medical innovation to protect, support, and advance the health and welfare of our military family. Incremental improvements are no longer enough to keep pace with change, especially given the massive challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic response. Embracing innovation means the MHS is never satisfied with the status quo, and is always on the path to improve our Ready Reliable Care.

In July, the Military Health System will approach the Health Innovation theme through the lens of Total Force Fitness, examining how health innovation impacts overall wellness and the entire body.
