Five Health Market Executives in Government Contracting
U.S. health care organizations are currently accelerating the transition of technologies and capabilities out to market. Robert Wood, an information security executive at the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, said that year-long technology development cycles are no longer viable in the health care sector, especially for startups.
“The unfortunate thing with technology is that it atrophies under your feet,” Wood said at a recent GovCon Wire event.
Meanwhile, the Department of Veterans Affairs, America’s largest integrated health care system, is elevating the role of its information technology office. According to one senior official, the office is now serving as consultants instead of order-takers for other VA components seeking to transform their IT.
The Potomac Officers Club—a division of Executive Mosaic—presents five health market leaders in the government contracting sector.

Thomas Bonina, a member of the Potomac Officers Club, is the president of the health information technology operating group at Koniag Government Services.
