People, Approaches, and Outcomes: Health Challenges and Opportunities
Optimizing systems of care that engage individuals and families in life-long prevention, health seeking, and health maintenance behaviors requires Federal policies and programs that leverage resources of public, private, and non-profit stakeholders. Senior Federal officials will discuss civilian and military policy frameworks and program initiatives that address barriers to creating stable healthy communities and families to promote effective interventions in health services research, clinical practice, health care financing, supportive services, and patient outcomes. This session also will discuss the important roles of professional service contractors in supporting major Federal policy initiatives.
Technology Trends & Impact on Health
Federal health agencies have important mission needs and business drivers that can be enabled by technology. Whether designing data standards, driving efficiencies, or finding new medical discoveries, emerging technologies such as AI, blockchain, agile, machine learning, and user-centered design can bring CIOs and program managers together to advance mission outcomes.
The Future of Government Acquisition in the Health Sector
Acquisition officials discuss their various acquisition innovation initiatives at their agencies. Topics include: best-in-class contracts, BuySmarter initiatives, improved forecasting, acquisition portals, other transaction authority, etc. What new initiatives that will impact customer buying trends can you expect to see the remainder of FY19, into FY20, and beyond?
