Navy Vice Adm. Raquel Bono, director of the Defense Health Agency, has said she believes the agency must respond to administrative challenges in DHA’s efforts to deliver Military Health System services to patients.

DHA said Thursday Bono highlighted DHA’s responsibilities during the final leg of the 2016 Defense Centers of Excellence for Psychological Health and Traumatic Brain Injury Summit on Sept. 15.

“We want to be more streamlined so we’re serving the entire enterprise,” said Bono.

Researchers and clinicians discussed issues that impact psychological health and the treatment of TBIs at the Defense Health Headquarters in Falls Church, Virginia.

Bono also explained how care advancements fit with her priorities that support the military services and optimize operations.
