The Defense Health Agency recently launched a five-year campaign plan identifying the eight strategic initiatives focused on improving the medical readiness of U.S. military personnel and the health of its 9.6 million beneficiaries.
This agency-wide strategy builds upon the fiscal year 2021 campaign plan and supports DHA’s priorities – Great Outcomes, Ready Medical Force, Satisfied Patients and Fulfilled Staff.
Army Colonel Jenifer Meno, DHA’s director for strategy, planning, and functional integration, said developing the five-year campaign plan has been a collaborative effort across the DHA.
“We continue to develop as a learning organization during DHA’s transformation,” Meno said. “The process continues to get better by synchronizing efforts, developing projects, establishing performance measures and a library to provide access to the performance data.”
Air Force Brig. Gen. Anita Fligge, DHA’s director of Operations, Strategy and Education, said the campaign plan provides a vision for the organization to improve the system of care and force readiness.
“As we transition from 20 years of deployments, we must sustain our critical wartime skills through strategic partnerships within the federal government in addition to civilian universities and hospitals,” said Fligge, who is also DHA’s Chief Nursing Officer.
“The work being done is crucial and is not limited to providers, but encompasses nurses, medics, and corpsmen.”
