Press release from: WowGao Inc.

February 14, 2008 – Toronto, Canada – Colonel Claude Hines, Program Manager of the U.S. Department of Defense Theater Medical Information Program – JOINT will present how the U.S. Military manages medical information from the battlefield at the 2008 Health Technologies Conference and Expo. The conference is being hosted April 15 - 16, 2008 at the Design Exchange.

For the first time in the history of the U.S. Military, battlefield information management and information technology systems are enabling improved quality of care and communications by capturing information electronically.

The Theater Medical Information Program – Joint, a Department of Defense (DoD) and Military Health System (MHS) program provides information management tools to the U.S. Military’s deployed medical community. This mobile, flexible software system, designed for low-to-no communications environments, supports clinical care documentation, medical supply and equipment tracking, patient movement visibility, and health surveillance in a deployed setting. TMIP-J operates on a combination of hand-held devices, notebooks and deployable servers and mirrors the capabilities of the Military’s U.S.-based medical information management systems.

TMIP-J carries out Presidential and Congressional requirements for establishing a life-long electronic health record for all Service members. Since May 2005, TMIP-J applications have electronically captured more than 1.2 million medical encounters. Patient data is available in near real-time through the DoD Central Data Repository to approved medical personnel throughout the MHS.

This presentation will delve into the challenges and successes TMIP-J faces during the development, update and integration process of the applications supporting the Theater medical business practice, including lessons learned.
