Charles River Analytics was awarded a $957,000 contract from the Medical Technology Enterprise Consortium for a project called MSTAT, Mobile System for Trauma Assessment Training. MSTAT presents an opportunity for Charles River to transform its medical training capabilities into a commercial product, one that lets users practice medical assessment and treatment skills within unlimited scenarios and receive feedback and guidance in the form of best-practice notes.
Correct and quick application of trauma assessment skills can save lives. Prior projects (STAT and VITAMMINS) resulted in a tablet-based application that allows users to engage in simulation-based training for trauma assessment, taking actions on a virtual patient to find and treat injuries. MSTAT will update this application for use on mobile phones, expanding the ability to practice critical skills during downtime.
