Charles River Analytics, developer of intelligent systems solutions, returned to the U.S. Army Telemedicine & Advanced Technology Research Center (TATRC) open house to demonstrate our EPIC3 traumatic injury prediction app. The event took place September 12th at the TATRC Mobile Health Innovation Center (mHIC) outside of Augusta, GA.
The TATRC mHIC campus hosted 300+ attendees and featured technology demonstrations on some of TATRC’s key initiatives. In a hands-on, interactive way, Charles River scientists presented the EPIC3 app, which supports TATRC’s AI Medic Assist project. Combat medics often treat Warfighters in the dangerous and challenging environments of an ongoing battle, where injuries can quickly turn fatal. The Army recently awarded Charles River Analytics additional funding to build EPIC3, an app that can reduce the number of preventable deaths from battlefield injuries.
EPIC3 helps combat medics overcome challenges in the field so they can quickly treat wounded Warfighters. Our EPIC3 app provides combat medics with a screening tool that quickly and accurately predicts traumatic injury and other patient outcomes. In hostile environments where each moment matters, EPIC3 quickly presents medical alerts and treatment guidance in a simple interface tailored to the medic’s needs and skill level.
“The TATRC Open House is an excellent opportunity to support TATRC and showcase our EPIC3 work in tactical combat casualty care,” said Max Metzger, Principal Investigator for EPIC3. “We enjoyed demonstrating EPIC3 and providing attendees with an opportunity to try it first-hand.”
EPIC3 is one of our Healthcare Support and Training efforts, which addresses medical skills training, therapy and decision-support tools, as well as sensor and sensing technologies. We also developed the VITAMMINS medical simulation and tutoring system, which classifies an individual’s skill and continuously adapts training content to meet individual learning needs, as well as the STAT tablet-based training system, which presents a virtual patient in multiple trauma scenarios for efficient and effective learning, rehearsal, and assessment.
