1 recipient will receive $3,833,000. This is a first-time earmark.
Year Enacted: 2005
Description: The investigator seeks to build upon previous work invested in prototyping a remote ICU, technology based clinical support platform. The application is currently in place and represents the standard of care at the Tripler Army Medical Center Hawaii where it projects intensive care clinician expertise to Guam Naval Hospital. The project introduces this capability to an Army Hospital in Korea significantly expanding the number of beds managed and the number of clinicians available for study. This test bed will then be used to study the application of telecommunication technologies, and mannequin-based simulation to team training and performance. Performance metrics will be applied to assess the effect of distance and isolation as well as the maintenance of skills over time.
