Hub 3: Health Innovation 
Innovation at DHA: On October 1st, 2019, the DHA assumes full authority, direction and control of over 400 Military Treatment Facilities currently managed by the Army, Navy and Air Force.  Amid this major reorganization, the DHA is establishing the capability to internally conduct innovation, which it defines as the process that accelerates change by creating new or different systems or capabilities to better achieve the quadruple aim (health, care, cost and readiness). 

Use Case: How might we design and implement a system for facilitating innovation throughout the Defense Health Agency?
