The voice from the field l.jpg
The Voice from the Field

  • Limited Resources

  • Limited Time

  • Limited Expertise

    • Tool Selection

    • Technical Knowledge

  • Overextension


Mobile information technologies l.jpg
Mobile Information Technologies

  • Advanced Mobile Portal Technology

  • Telemedicine Issue Drivers:

    • Access to Information

      • Patient Records – History, Allergies, Lab, Pharmacy

      • Clinical Practice Guidelines

    • Data Accuracy

    • Reduce Errors

    • Patient Access – Home Healthcare, At-Risk Populations (Cardiac, Diabetes Monitoring)

  • Technology Acceptance

    • 55% of physicians by 2005


  • Military applications l.jpg
    Military Applications

    • Mission Variety: Humanitarian Warfighting

    • Battlefield Digitization System

      • “Commanders Digital Assistant”

      • GPS and Communications Components

    • Force XXI Central Digitization - Successes

      • Averted Friendly Fire

    • Battlefield Questions (80%)

      • Where are you?

      • Where are my leaders?

      • What do my leaders want me to do?


    Military applications5 l.jpg
    Military Applications

    • Mission Directions, maps, real-time GPS coordinates

    • Scenario: Each soldier can:

      • Mark location changes

      • Send reports of ground observations or enemy strength

      • Send preformatted messages (“Call for fire”; “MEDEVAC”)

    Military Applications

    • Lighter weight (high energy battery – reduced weight ½ and doubled useful battery life)

    • Projection: Field testing at Fort Bragg – could go Army-wide in a few months.

    • “If you have devices that take away a lot of the confusion, they could save lives.”
