Jonathan Woodson, assistant defense secretary for health affairs, has said the Defense Department should overhaul its system for managing the care workforce and medical services across the U.S. military, DoD News reported Wednesday.

David Vergun writes Woodson told audience at a CJ Reddy Leadership Course program held last week at the Pentagon he believes an enterprise strategy is needed to address military healthcare management challenges.

He added adopting the approach means “providing common medical platforms [and] common business tools that allow us to do our jobs more effectively.”

He also urged DoD to rethink how its military care teams work, eliminate processes that hamper efficiency and identify methods to increase collaboration with other agencies.

“We have to adjust our medical posture to provide care wherever men and women are being asked to go in harm’s way,” Woodson noted.
