MEDINAV is a new concept for augmented U.S. Navy health care delivery. It utilizes monochromatic television for pictures, alphanumerics and graphic information, and transmission in single sequential television frames stored and forwarded at a speed compatible with current and planned communications facilities. Voice and other medical functions are provided. In this report, the MEDINAV baseline medical considerations are analyzed and subjective parameters derived. These, in turn, are used to establish principal, terminal objective output requirements which were a basis for evaluating communications facilities for MEDINAV suitability. With the exception of HF radio circuits under adverse conditions from natural causes, all communications facilities evaluated are suitable--many future systems will exceed MEDINAV minimal requirements. A feasibility demonstration program is recommended using established telemedicine circuitry as a control. The rationale for this program is reviewed. Author
