Air Force Medical Service Continues EHR Development Work

electronic-health-record-EHRThe Air Force Medical Service is working to develop a new electronic health record that can offer soldiers real-time data to help deliver treatment to wounded personnel deployed in harsh or isolated environments.

The U.S. Air Force said Wednesday the Theater Medical -Information Program – Air Force project management office helps test, update and train the Armed Forces Longitudinal Technology Application – Theater, the latter of which serves as the deployed EHR for the AFMS.

Darrell Mayers, TMIP-AF functional analyst, said the Air Force has pushed more than 500,000 ground-based electronic medical records to the field since 2011.

“From a patient safety standpoint, continuity of care is a major piece. When we transmit their records, the medical staff on the ground can see it before the patient ever gets off the plane,” Mayers said.

TMIP-AF offers a three-day training course for system administrators to learn aspects of the applications based on their location and manage a software’s connectivity, as well as components designed to transmit records.
