Abstract : The purpose of the University of Hawaii Telemedicine Curriculum Research Project is to develop an effective web-based curriculum for training military healthcare personnel in the use of contemporary communication, automation, and informatics technology in the delivery of healthcare. The overall curriculum is generic in nature, while specific modules can be tailored to the needs of the military healthcare provider (HCP). The goal of the telemedicine curriculum is to impart both the necessary knowledge and practice skills to the HCP. The HCP will learn the various clinical uses of telemedicine and will also understand the clinical and organizational barriers of the successful utilization of telemedicine. The telemedicine curriculum has been designed to address the communication and automation tools available to the military healthcare system. This advanced toolkit of telemedicine curriculum modules will support the efforts of the DoD to efficiently and effectively apply the latest technological advances in communication and data transfer to improving healthcare delivery.
