Cambridge is Helping BUMED Improve Responsiveness to the Warfighters Transformational Changes
As part of our efforts to continue leveraging our core competencies and emerging technologies to support the Navy and Joint Military Medical Community of Interest (MEDCOI), Cambridge has been awarded a task order to support the U.S. Navy’s Bureau of Medicine and Surgery’s (BUMED) Operational Medical Capabilities Development (OMCD) engineering. In support of BUMED, Cambridge will leverage recent success in transforming Naval Expeditionary Health Service Support (NEHSS) operational readiness reporting systems to provide a systems engineering discipline to the acquisition and life cycle management and implement continuous improvement in OMCD coordination/collaboration with key stakeholders.
As BUMED implements the requirements of the National Defense Authorization Act, it must navigate organizational change without interruption of the significant progress in achieving transformational modernization of expeditionary health support systems to meet warfighter readiness requirements. This systems engineering discipline will allow support and study teams to focus on integrating all aspects of NEHSS governance and ensure operational readiness through a complete family of systems.
“Cambridge is extremely excited to be supporting the Navy Surgeon General’s implemented reinvention within BUMED to improve responsiveness to the warfighters’ transformational changes,” said Dr. Stephen J. McDowell, Cambridge’s Director of Health Programs.
Cambridge is helping Navy Medicine and the Joint Military MEDCOI navigate and adopt the Surgeon General’s nine designated domains which include Additive Manufacturing; Algorithms and Analytics; Core IT Software, Devices, Hardware, and Infrastructure; Genomics; Information Exchange and Big Data; Internet of Things; Mixed Reality; Mobile and Web; Robotics and Automation; and Virtual Healthcare.
