Nation’s Military Health Professions Academy Chooses tiag® to Illuminate the Way Forward
WASHINGTON, D.C., December 5, 2017 – To advance the mission of Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences (USUHS) as the nation’s military health profession academy, tiag® (The Informatics Applications Group, Inc.) was awarded a contract to assess and define the way forward for USUHS expanded roles within the Military Health System (MHS).
As part of this work, tiag will complete an independent assessment to identify the challenges and possible courses of action for USUHS to provide an academic (.edu) network and information management, information technology (IM/IT) services support to the Medical Education and Training Campus (METC). This study will further explore the potential for USUHS to embrace a greater role in academic and research network support across MHS.
Providing diagnostic, actionable information and insights to enable the transformation of military healthcare, this assessment’s possible outcomes include collaborative academic and research missions within the MHS, and the exploration of robust intersite and interagency capability and connectivity to support existing programs and emerging ‘big data’ research.
tiag Executive Director for Military Health Arthur “Charlie” Doutt explains that tiag is no stranger to the deep in this quest, having previously served as a strategic thought and solution partner in numerous USUHS missions.
“tiag’s far-reaching trajectory of advancing USUHS projects — and our support of the prior USUHS .edu migration — validated our team’s ability to deliver high quality, mission-critical performance for this effort,” says Doutt. “We’re honored and excited to move forward on this assessment, which will identify all applicable issues affecting an expansion of USUHS’s network and services support role for METC and the broader MHS.”
