Jerry Hogge, Leidos

Jerry Hogge joined Leidos in August 2012 to serve as deputy general manager for the Health Solutions Group. In this role, he oversaw strategic business development activities that led to above-market growth and profitability for the organization.

In 2016, the company acquired Lockheed Martin’s former Information Systems & Global Solutions business, a $5 billion transaction that required the company to undergo a significant reorganization to integrate the expanded portfolio of capabilities.

Following this change, Hogge was selected to lead the Defense and Veteran Health Solution organization, the largest operating unit within the Health Solutions Group. Prior to Leidos, he held leadership roles at various federal contractors, including senior vice president of strategy and business development at QinetiQ North America and vice president of business and strategy development for SAIC. Hogge is also a licensed patent attorney and practiced patent law at the firm Birch Stewart Kolasch and Birch.

Why Watch:

Despite the challenge of navigating within the hypercompetitive federal health IT marketplace, Leidos Health has continued to see significant growth.

In 2015, Leidos was awarded the $4.3 billion Defense Health Management System Modernization contract, a technology and health care transformation program designed to standardize the delivery of health care for the Military Health System. In his current role, Hogge is responsible for the Leidos Partnership for Defense Health, a team composed of more than 30 industry partners, including Cerner, Accenture and Henry Schein One.

The Leidos partnership recently launched the first deployment wave of MHS GENESIS, a fully interoperable and secure electronic health record system designed to improve the delivery of health care for nearly 10 million service members and their families.

“We are incredibly proud of the MHS GENESIS solution and are discovering new and innovative ways the system is enabling clinicians and healthcare providers to deliver safe, high-quality health care,” Hogge said. “Our No. 1 priority in 2019 is to continue delivering sophisticated technology that enables our customers to provide the best possible care and safety to patients. We take great pride in meeting the needs of our Department of Defense and Department of Veterans Affairs customers, as they are fulfilling the ultimate mission, which is to serve those who have bravely served and sacrificed for this country.”
