The Military Health System (MHS) has implemented many innovative programs to improve the access, cost and quality of healthcare while enhancing the medical readiness of our Armed Forces. Often, one facility does not know what another has accomplished, nor have the time to research it. That's where the Healthcare Innovations Program (HIP) can help. As part of the OCMO Directorate, we share your ideas to senior leaders as potential MHS-wide solutions.
Simply click on the sections below and find out how your fellow innovators are succeeding in transforming the MHS. Learn from their helpful tools and other resources. Share your ideas and be recognized as an innovator, too!
