Abstract:

We propose to design and develop Blood Reserve Availability Assessment, Tracking, and Management System (BRAMS) that will supplement the Joint Medical Asset Repository (JMAR) by allowing users to manually enter data via a web-based system. BRAMS will implement data integrity and access control mechanisms to ensure that the data entered is valid, and not duplicated by other data sources. Our experience with the JMAR data warehouse will ensure that the results of the proposed effort are successfully integrated and transitioned to JMAR. In addition to extending the data coverage and trust in JMAR data, the proposed effort will use data mining and knowledge based analyses to transform the Armed Services Blood Program (ASBP) and JMAR from a reactive agency to a forward looking, proactive agency. Innovative solutions that will be implemented in BRAMS include predictive logistics and forecasting, agent based alerts and notifications, emergency response management, and transportation optimization. BRAMS will enable program and preparedness managers to use data mining and analytics to detect problems, analyze underlying drivers for system behavior, evaluate alternate solutions, and optimize the supply chain. The Phase I effort will build a prototype BRAMS. Phase II will deploy the BRAMS within a focused military logistics application.
