Current practice for handling pre-hospital documentation is primarily paper based with several major limitations such as ease of loss or destruction, susceptibility to the environment, etc., which along with other factors have been identified as the reasons for the lack of pre-hospital care documentation. Moreover, the information related to care rendered by one unit (e.g., first responders at the point of service) is not easily accessible to the other units (e.g., medical personnel during en route care) in the tactical environment. To enhance current practice, Intelligent Automation, Inc., is developing the SWAC3 (Secure Wireless Architecture for Combat Casualty Care), a cloud-based approach that enables secure and efficient data sharing during prolonged field care and en route combat casualty care casualty evacuation to the medical treatment facility. In initial Phase II, we have developed near real-time collection and sharing of patient care medical information in the form of TC3 cards (DD1380), and tested our SWAC3 system prototype in field exercises. In this proposed second Phase II, we will extend its support to more medical data types, explore further integration with evolving medical systems/applications, enhance its web functions, and develop en route data sharing among medics during mass-casualties situations.
