Authority to Operate enables all Defense Health Agency locations to purchase and utilize GlobalMed’s Virtual Health Technologies
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., October 19, 2021 — GlobalMed, an international provider of telehealth solutions, today announced that its industry-leading virtual health platform has earned the U.S. Defense Health Agency’s (DHA) Authority to Operate (ATO) on the Department of Defense (DoD) DHA Medical Community of Interest (Med COI) network.
GlobalMed’s virtual health solutions are the first synchronous clinical virtual health technologies awarded an ATO. This much-coveted certification enables GlobalMed to integrate their virtual health platform including carts, medical devices, software, and applications directly with the DHA’s Med COI network, making their solutions available to integrate with MHS Genesis, the new patient-centric enterprise system designed to provide a single, continuous record of care for all DOD beneficiaries. In addition to providing medical care on the battlefield and at bases overseas (as well as on ships) DHA’s network includes 721 military treatment facilities and 174,000 health care personnel, which provide health services to approximately 9.6 million beneficiaries.
“It has always been a personal priority to increase health care access for the members and families of the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, Space Force and Coast Guard,” said Joel E. Barthelemy, CEO and Vice Chairman of GlobalMed and a Marine Corps Reserve Veteran. “The Department of Defense is a huge healthcare provider and network security is a high priority. GlobalMed is committed to every aspect of security and compliance throughout our applications having recently completed our SOC 2 Type 2 examination with even more stringent security attestations on our road map. Our commitment to delivering unmatched performance, security and scalability extends beyond our government clients to those in the commercial enterprise space, giving physician groups and non-government hospitals an added measure of reassurance.”
DHA selected GlobalMed for its HIPAA-compliant virtual telemedicine platform that seamlessly and securely connects healthcare professionals and patients, regardless of location. GlobalMed is also the telehealth provider for the White House Medical Unit and has deployed its solutions across the VA hospitals and extension centers, and other U.S. Departments and Agencies.
