Teleophthalmology Application Selected for 2020 FedHealthIT Innovation Award

Falls Church, VA—IBA is proud to announce that the Forward Operating Base EXpert Telemedicine Resource Utilizing MObile Application for Trauma (FOXTROT) has been named a 2020 FedHealthIT Innovation Award winner.

Developed by IBA team members at the U.S. Army Medical Research and Development Command (USAMRDC) Telemedicine and Advanced Technology Research Center (TATRC) in Fort Gordon, Georgia, FOXTROT is an operationally secure, HIPAA-compliant mobile application for remotely treating combat-related injuries involving the eye. The application currently features triage surveys, image capture, chat, reports, remote health monitoring, and user management. With additional future developments, FOXTROT will ultimately provide comprehensive teleophthalmology care to deployed service members. FOXTROT has been tested at U.S. military treatment facilities (MTFs), including Joint Base Andrews in Maryland and Wilford Hall Ambulatory Surgical Center in Texas, and deployed at selected forward operating bases in Afghanistan.

“Our TATRC development team collaborated directly with Warfighter SMEs deployed within the CENTCOM AOR to create this cutting-edge mobile solution,” said Julie Olson, IBA’s Director of Operations. “IBA’s past efforts supporting the Vision Center of Excellence, paired with years of experience developing mobile applications, contributed to FOXTROT’s ability to provide ophthalmologic telehealth support in a deployed environment—a force multiplier.”

The annual FedHealthIT Innovation Awards recognize the top federal health programs and the teams behind innovative efforts in support of the Department of Veterans Affairs, Military Health, the Department of Health and Human Services, and the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. Nominated and chosen by their peers, the award-winning programs stand out for their willingness to take on achievable risk and deliver real results.
