The Âé¶¹´«Ã½ (ACS) and the U.S. Department of Defense Military Health System (MHS) formed the Military Health System Strategic Partnership Âé¶¹´«Ã½ (MHSSPACS) to improve educational opportunities, systems-based practices, and research capabilities in surgery. The strategic partnershipâ€”launched December 2014â€”will facilitate collaboration and the exchange of information between Âé¶¹´«Ã½and MHS to advance high-quality, cost-effective care for surgical patients.
