Year in Review - A Look Forward

For the Military Health System, 2019 was a year of great change; implementation of the new electronic health record, MHS GENESIS, was unveiled in several locations; administration of military treatment facilities in the U.S. transferred from the Services to DHA; a new DHA Director assumed his new leadership position; MHS continued its leadership role in Global Health Engagement, and several other high-profile initiatives spurred the transformation of the Military Health System. 

In December 2019, MHS/DHA seeks not only look back at DHA’s momentous year of change, but also to look forward to 2020 and how these changes will lead MHS/DHA into the next decade.
