Defense Healthcare Management Systems

The Program Executive Office, Defense Healthcare Management Systems (PEO, DHMS) was chartered to transform the delivery of healthcare and advance data sharing through a modernized electronic health record (EHR) for service members, Veterans, and their families. 

Program Overview
