FALLS CHURCH, VA — Irving Burton Associates (IBA), a leading technology consulting services firm, today announced that the US Army Medical Research and Materiel Command (USAMRMC) Telemedicine and Advanced Technology Research Center (TATRC) has received FedHealthIT Innovation Awards for two of its revolutionary programs.
FedHealthIT Innovation Awards are determined by a panel of judges that include government and industry leaders who evaluate applicants from across the industry, selecting winners based on their willingness to take on achievable risk and to deliver real results in support of their mission. Two of the USAMRMC TATRC programs supported by IBA, the Mobile Health Care Environment (MHCE) and the BioGears® physiology engine, were selected as winning entries.
“We wish to congratulate USAMRMC TATRC and our supporting IBA team members for this recognition from the FedHealth IT Innovation awards.” said Julie Olson, Director of Operations for IBA. “IBA has a significant footprint in the defense health arena, Health IT, and has supported the U.S Army Medical Research and Materiel Command (USAMRMC) in the areas of research in telemedicine and advanced medical technologies for over 10 years. We are proud to support these innovative programs.”
TATRC’s MHCE system and its secure mobile application mCare were initially developed in direct response to a healthcare delivery gap that surrounding an inability to consistently meet required case management contact rates for remote service members. The resulting application is a HIPAA-compliant mobile communication solution that leverages end users personal mobile devices in a manner uniquely distinct from text messaging or email.
BioGears®, an advanced medical simulation engine, was conceptualized under a cooperative agreement sponsored by TATRC with Applied Research Associates, Inc. (ARA) as the prime developer. The BioGears® physiology engine encapsulates existing and emerging models of organs and physiological systems into a simple, interoperable framework that lowers the barriers to future simulation development and allows users to more quickly produce deliverables (www.biogearsengine.com)
