During Tactical Combat Casualty Care (TC3), parajumpers and medics document patient care during pre-hospital care via physical methods including TC3 Cards. Paper-based methods offer easy and efficient distribution, but they suffer from limitations as the sole means of documentation. This includes vulnerability to destruction due to environmental conditions, loss during patient hand-offs or being rendered illegible from blood and fluids. Studies have demonstrated that the loss or degradation of this information during pre-hospital care is significant and patient outcomes are directly impacted by these failures maintaining information along the entire continuum of care. Parajumpers face challenges unique to their MOS given the conditions under which they operate. We propose to develop a prototype system to enable the efficient transfer of patient information through a secure, persistent, and durable mechanism that can be easily maintained with the patient during numerous patient hand-offs as the patient transitions through the continuum of care from the Point of Injury to a Combat Support Hospital. We term this system the Recording Audio/video and Vitals for Emergency Networks (RAVEN), will not be tied to specific sensor systems and will be interoperable with multiple EHRs. Phase I will culminate with a prototype demonstration.
