Abstract

TBDThis proposal is for the Assisted Informatics and Decisions for Medics (AID-Medic) system. AID-Medic is an integrated mobile application intended as part of the ONR military Medical Informatics Decision Assistance and Support (MIDAS) program, and is directed toward alleviating the problem of information overload for Navy hospital corpsman assigned to Marine Corps units. The typical information overload for the hospital corpsman has two main components: (1) Far too much information regarding appropriate patient care provision; and (2) Increasing amounts of patient-specific data scattered across a wide range of care levels, caregivers, and care facility locations. Hospital corpsmen working with the Marine Corps? operating forces will benefit greatly from a technology that would help prevent and mitigate medical information overload in their care of patients. Our plan for providing this technology is to develop AID-Medic as a new app for mobile, handheld devices that will be portable enough for use in all corpsman situations, and will include comprehensive access to information, procedural guidance and inter-provider communication. We will achieve this by integrating advanced AI techniques with WikEM, an established web application that contains a comprehensive database of emergency medical information and currently has over100,000 users worldwide, many of them military personnel.
