I went to the Washington Technology Health and Human Services Industry Day on October 6 with fresh eyes—this is new territory for me. The half-day event was well-attended and provided a nice broad-stroke view of the procurement focus areas for fiscal year 2017.

Shared services. Interoperability. Usability.
