Innovation

PACE bannerThe Office of Strategy Management aims to redefine the pace of innovation for the Military Health System (MHS) in service, process, and technology innovation by empowering individuals, sharing best practices, and collaborating with strategic partners. The Office advances health and readiness across the full spectrum of military operations in combat, community, and global environments.

OSM defines innovation as accelerating the adoption of transformational initiatives, so we can advance a “medically ready force and a ready medical force.”

PACE graphicWhy Innovation?

Exponential change is reshaping today’s healthcare environment and the continued viability of the MHS depends on its ability to innovate. Incremental improvements are no longer enough to keep pace with change. Embracing innovation allows the MHS to build the necessary partnerships, processes, and technologies to serve warfighters and their families better.

What's new in the MHS?

We are focused on continually finding innovative ways to protect, support, and advance the health and welfare of the Defense community. We remain on the cutting edge of medical practices and procedures, thus providing the best possible care for service members and beneficiaries.
