The Defense Health Agency Solution Delivery Division (SDD) established the Medical Logistics Information Technology (MEDLOG IT) Program Management Office (PMO) on April 1, aligning the SDD MEDLOG IT portfolio directly to the Program Executive Office (PEO)-SDD.

“Standing up the MEDLOG IT PMO continues our move towards a capabilities-based mission and helps streamline reporting and management to PEO-SDD,” said Army Col. Francisco Dominicci, SDD chief. 

The MEDLOG IT PMO is a major Acquisition Category IAC (ACAT IAC) Defense Medical Logistics-Enterprise Solution (DML-ES) program. The PMO develops and sustains IT systems that support Military Health System medical logistics and acquisition. MEDLOG IT systems serve more than 24,000 users and process more than 940,000 daily supply requisitions with annual supply requisitions valued at $4.5 billion.  

During the COVID-19 pandemic, the MEDLOG IT PMO provided essential medical logistics IT and supply chain support across the MHS and Department of Defense. Using precise, “live” data pulls from their IT supply and ordering systems, the PMO kept high level DoD, Service, combatant commands and DHA leaders informed about MHS personal protective equipment, critical equipment inventories and other medical logistics issues. They also enabled medical prime vendor support to deployed medical units providing Defense support to civil authorities. 

Also known as the Joint Medical Logistics Functional Development Center (JMLFDC), the MEDLOG IT PMO was formally part of the SDD Clinical Support PMO. Dominicci said creating a separate PMO that directly reports to the PEO-SDD simplifies the organization’s operational management, facilitating greater efficiencies and improved responsiveness for SDD customers. 

JMLFDC was created in 1993 to support the Defense Medical Logistics Standard Support (DMLSS) program by creating an automated information system to enable the joint business processes of DoD medical logistics; and, identifying and implementing business process improvements for the DML-ES. 

 “For more than 25 years, JMLFDC has embodied a capability-based, readiness-oriented and customer-focused approach to delivering integrated MEDLOG functionality that spans and enables the Military Health System continuum of care,” Rauch said. “Through all of that activity to the ongoing technical refresh of DMLSS, JMLFDC has delivered capability that supports the environment of care and enables delivery of health care from forward deployed locations to the busiest continental United States-based military treatment facilities.”

JMLFDC brought together the medical logistics and IT experts needed to develop and sustain the DMLSS application, Rauch said. The center has worked with the DML-ES since 1993 and has transitioned more than 15 disparate legacy medical logistics IT applications into a single ACAT IAC program managed by a single program office.
