Research Institution

In PhaseI, IAI, teamed with researchers from University of Maryland School of Medicine,successfully developed and demonstrated thefeasibility of thetechnical innovation that was proposed:mDERM,a smartphone based dermatology diagnosis system thatcan be operated by medicsand/or warriors in the battlefield to diagnosetheinfected skin lesion with asnapshot. In PhaseII we will leverageand enhance the prototypefor human subjectand field testing. To achievethesegoals we will1) develop secured working prototype undera NIST/DOD risk management framework; 2)conduct thorough accuracy evaluation under both laboratoryand field tests; 3)conduct human subjectand field tests; 4) Integrate with electronic health record;and 5) pursueFDA approval. At theend of PhaseII we will workclosely with the DHA/Army sponsors to validatetheapproach and transition thetechnology to beintegrated into Army, VHA and other military programs.
