Terri Moon Cronk writes that Woodson described DHA’s enterprise management approach for the Military Health System as the agency seeks to ensure the quality and affordability of healthcare for soldiers and their families.
According to Woodson, the agency was established to instill common clinical practices and business processes across the Navy, Army and Air Force.
He noted that these standards are important as healthcare costs continue to rise and the Defense Department has to balance other areas that need funding.
“We need to be good stewards of the taxpayers’ dollars, but we also we need to be good stewards within the broader Department of Defense family,” he said.
Woodson pointed to what he believes is the consistency and depth of health programs and availability of health services as a result of the military’s ongoing efforts to jointly develop policies and programs.
