From the Paper:

"One of the great advantages to conducting a major set of reforms at an existing facility is the opportunity which this presents to induce greater compliance with emergent priorities. For instance, the facility plan under discussion here would allow the Hickam facilities to achieve a higher level of the coordination now required in relation to other government-run health agencies. For instance, a memorandum originating with the office of the Assistant Secretary of Defense (2008) reports the policy demand placed upon all military healthcare facilities "to implement the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) National Healthcare Safety Network (NHSN) within the Military Health System (MHS). A data use agreement with CDC is now in place, making CDC part of the MHS Quality Assurance Program and allowing the release of military treatment facility (MTF) data in the NHSN." (Casscells, 1)
"With respect to the design and equipment priorities of the Hickam facility, this denotes an emphasis on improving the instruments of interagency communication such that personnel at The 15th Medical Group would be better equipped to transmit data quickly and accurately. The construction of new facilities and the renewal of existing facilities would be supplemented by a thrust toward faster, more reliable web connectivity and a more navigable approach to data warehousing, archiving and accessing."
