Tracy Farrill’s Notable Contributions to the Healthcare Industry
RDML Tracy Farrill is one of the people who spoke up for regional markets and is expanding access to healthcare. According to an early 2022 post on Health.mil, the Army sent a team of Kentucky doctors to help Afghan refugees in 2021. They were concerned about a lack of pediatric care in their home base.
The new DHA Southwest Kentucky Market director has informed the DHA headquarters of the potential impact of deployments on local beneficiaries. The headquarters immediately acted on the development of a strategy. Its goal was to fill the local market’s need for pediatric care resources and prevent service interruptions. The fast response is due to the new regional markets the DHA publicly introduced in 2021.
At that time, Tracy Farrill was the U.S. Public Health Service Captain and transition director for the DHA Assistant Director for Health Care Administration. Tracy also contributes to increasing the new market for the Military Health System’s standardized care within the country and internationally.
