The Department of Defense (DoD) began a multi-year transition of Military Treatment Facilities
(MTFs) from the military departments to the DHA for the purposes of implementing an
integrated system of readiness and health required by sections 702 and 703 of the FY 2017
National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) and updated in sections 711 and 712 of the FY
2019 NDAA. Consistent with NDAA mandates, DHA established the Military Health System
(MHS) Enterprise Information Technology Services (EITS) initiative to provide a framework for
transforming MHS IT from the current decentralized model to centralized management and
coordination with distributed delivery. The MHS EITS strategy includes three major
components: EITS Integrator (EITSI), Capability Service Providers (CSPs), and GSPs (GSPs are
the focus of this Industry Day).
