the voice from the field
The Voice from the Field
  • Limited Resources
  • Limited Time
  • Limited Expertise
    • Tool Selection
    • Technical Knowledge
  • Overextension
mobile information technologies
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)

military applications
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
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 applications6
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.”
military medical applications
Military Medical Applications
  • Deployed Environments
    • Limited expertise
    • Isolation
    • Efficient and standardized records
    • Forward medical care
    • Communications
