The Defense Health Agency is in the middle of implementing a cloud strategy that will transform the way it delivers applications and data across the enterprise. Colonel Richard Wilson, chief of DHA's Solution Delivery Division, is leading many of these efforts, and is excited about the possibility of creating a foundation to work on more advanced technologies like artificial intelligence and predictive analytics.

DHA is also adopting Military Health System Genesis, a modernization of its current electronic health record that dates back to the late 1980s. With new tools and innovative transitions comes evolving cybersecurity challenges, but protecting patient data is paramount to DHA.
