DoD and VA healthcare providers face the dual challenges of achieving Electronic
Medical Record (EMR) meaningful use milestones while managing shrinking budgets.
As a result, investing in agile, secure IT infrastructures that meet “always on, access
anywhere” requirements at reduced cost is critical.
To further accelerate patient care delivery, providers are focused on virtualization,
cloud, and IT- as-a-Service (ITaaS) models that enable them to stand up new
technologies and service delivery methods, and accelerate the deployment of key
healthcare applications. Key ITaaS technology enablers include a cloud-based, highly
automated technology infrastructure, as well as an online catalog of standardized
business, IT, and clinical services that clinicians and administrators can directly
consume. Through this approach, DoD and VA healthcare providers can reduce costs

Big Data analytics is also playing a critical role—offering the potential to improve
avoidable readmissions, disease surveillance, prescribed treatments, and patient
outcomes. According to
a recent MeriTalk report, “The Big Data Cure,” 59 percent of
Federal healthcare-focused executives surveyed say in five years, fulfilling their
agency’s mission objectives will depend on successfully leveraging Big Data.1
