1 recipient will receive $1,727,000. This is a continuing earmark.
Year Enacted: 2005
Description: The goal of the US/Norwegian wireless communication research program is to design and integrate wired and wireless communication technologies to enable a healthcare provider equipped with a personal digital assistant to retrieve and enter patient information and to access (legacy) medical information systems and digital medical reference materials. The global communication design will be functional at any level of care ranging from fixed facilities to forward deployed medical units. The communication system will be secured for operations in hostile environments and the PDA device will be `ruggedized` for use by forward-deployed personnel. The communication architecture will be developed by Vitel Nter and SINTEF (Norway), with consultative support from USAMRMC, TATRC, WRAMC, University of Minnesota, and University of Tromso (Norway).
