The Clinical Information Technology Program Office (CITPO) is an acquisition office for centrally managed Military Health System (MHS)[1] clinical information technology systems that support the delivery of health services throughout the MHS. CITPO is staffed by members of the Armed Services' medical departments and a government civilian workforce, working together as a matrixed organization to meet project goals and objectives.

The CITPO is committed to improving health care for all entitled Department of Defense (DoD) personnel.

In support of that commitment, CITPO's mission is to acquire and maintain computer-based clinical information systems,[2] which facilitate the provision of quality health services to all entitled to DoD health care by investing in our people and partnering with our employees, customers, contractors, and other organizations.

In May, 2008 CITPO was combined with the TMIP-J Program Office[3] to form Defense Health Information Management System (DHIMS)[4][5]
