In honor of Veterans Day, Philip Dietz, General Manager of Cognosante’s Military and Veteran Health Business Unit, shares his perspective on our commitment to honor Veterans’ service every day of the year through our work, our culture, and our hiring practices.
Every day, Cognosante supports the principles of passion, commitment, and dedication to the mission. As we observe Veterans Day on November 11th, we pause to recognize the people who displayed those values every single day in service to our country.
Although we can never fully appreciate the contributions our Veterans have made, we’re proud to play a small part in ensuring our nation lives up to its promise “to care for him who shall have borne the battle, and for his widow, and his orphan.” When Abraham Lincoln spoke these words in 1865, he set the highest standard for what society should do to honor those who served in our Armed Forces, as well as the families who support them. It’s a standard we strive to meet every day.
I am honored to work for a company that demonstrates this commitment to Veterans. Veterans deserve the best services that we, as a nation, can provide and Cognosante’s Military and Veteran Health (MVH) business unit is dedicated to making that vision a reality.
The Veterans health system is one of the largest integrated healthcare networks in the United States, with 1,255 healthcare facilities serving over 9 million enrolled Veterans each year. Our team partners with the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) as they modernize their systems and infrastructure to improve access to high-quality health services for this important segment of our population. Through our work, we help Veteran beneficiaries see community-based providers faster and manage chronic health conditions. We optimize providers’ access to healthcare information, reduce administrative burden on VA staff, and increase access to needed supplies.
Here are just a few examples of the work we do to support the Veteran community:
Cognosante has been honored to touch the lives of Veterans, their families, healthcare providers, and VA staff daily. We are humbled by our responsibility to make these programs a success and are so proud to go to work each day knowing that our efforts will make an impact. We can’t ask for a more honorable or inspiring mission and look forward to further honoring our nation’s Veterans.
For us, every day is Veterans Day.
Game-changing. Relentless. Passionate. Cognosante produces powerful results for our customers and the communities they serve.
