First woman commanding general for health care in Pacific speaks on Capitol Hill about Tele-Health

WASHINGTON D.C. -- Major General Nancy R. Adams, Commanding General of Tripler Army Medical Center, Hawaii, and United States Army Pacific Command Surgeon, will speak Wednesday on Capitol Hill about the massive Department of Defense initiative to build information technologies for military healthcare.

Maj. Gen. Adams is also Commander of Pacific Regional Medical Center and the first woman and nurse to lead this command. She also heads the VA/DOD telehealth operations in the Pacific Health System, which serves the medical needs of 750,000 active-duty military and other Pacific Island beneficiaries.

Her presence on The Hill is to apprise Congress of current military efforts to provide optimal health care via virtual technology. Maj. Gen. Adams will be speaking to the Congressional Ad Hoc Steering Committee on Telehealth about the VA/DoD partnership. The federal partnership is entitled "Emerging Technology and Medical Research Hui." (Hui is a Hawaiian word meaning partner or group.)

Maj. Gen. Adams has been recognized as both a military and medical leader in the research, development, direction and coordination of the military's initiative to explore and innovate technological solutions for public/private health care delivery.

"Being responsible for delivery of healthcare to a region as big as the Pacific requires me to use and support the development of technology tools that transcend time, distance and barriers," says Maj. Gen. Adams.

"These technological tools and clinical capability offer tremendous opportunities for reuse by other federal agencies as well as transferability to
