(EP-145) Synchronous Virutal Support to Special Operation Forces

Tuesday, April 25
10:30 AM - 10:45 AM
Location: Experience Zone - ePosters

Our team developed a virtual health solution to provide synchronous telemedicine specialty support capabilities to special forces providers in a deployed theater of operation. This Proof of Concept, along with other projects lead by RHC-A (P), is designed to support operational medicine and improve care for our Soldiers where it is needed most. In addition, the team built the internal resources both at the Region and at Regional Hubs to manage the oversight of Operational VH. Clinical support, workflow, policy and technical solutions were operational and deployed to the point of need on August 8, 2016. Additional testing and validation of value is ongoing with the special forces community. Standardized workflows and SOPs will make these programs Dependable, Achievable and Replaceable so they can be easily transportable across the Special Forces Community.
