— Tracel Wilt, vice president of government sales, BioIQ —
Health Readiness means many things across the different branches of service for both active duty soldiers and reservists. It encompasses both physical and mental health—everything from dental and vision services to immunizations and psychiatric fitness. Health screening to reveal risk factors for chronic diseases is also a critical component of maintaining the fitness and serviceability of our armed forces.
Earlier this month I had the pleasure of attending the Military Healthcare Conference 2015 in Arlington, VA. It was a privilege to hear military health care leaders from all branches of service discuss population health, including the Force Master Chief of the U.S. Navy Hospital Corps and the Rear Admiral Command Surgeon of the U.S. Pacific Command. A universal theme of many of the sessions was the topic of Health Readiness.
As a former Army Officer, I experienced the delivery of these services firsthand. One of the opportunities I am tremendously excited about here at BioIQ is the award of our GSA schedule. BioIQ can now apply our preventive care excellence and proven technology platform to many challenges currently facing the agencies tasked with our nation’s defense.
BioIQ is able, via our SoftSuite platform, to leverage logistical excellence, data accessibility, and aggregation of clinical values and immunization records to support pre-deployment as well as annual readiness activities. BioIQ’s ability to provide early identification of potential health problems allows for better risk stratification and accessibility to limited healthcare resources. This can also improve health outcomes for those serving our country.

In the mean time, stay tuned for my upcoming blogs on U.S. humanitarian health efforts and specific programs currently being offered to both the Defense Health Alliance and the Department of Veteran’s Affairs.
