The emerging nature of telemedicine is an environment in which health care providers seek to share a vast array of medical information which is captured, disseminated, and displayed in a variety of modalities ranging from email to high resolution imagery and real-time video teleconferencing. In theory clinicians should be able to select and use the information modalities and electronic medical record systems they prefer, with the technical systems integration issues of information discourse among disparate sources being transparent. The overall research and development goals of the Secure Wireless Military Healthcare Telemedicine Enterprise System research effort is to evaluate the use of ViTel Nets commercial-off-the-shelf COTS telemedicine integration tools and platform for rapidly configuring and dynamically integrating disparate medical teleconsultation systems, medical information and image display modalities, and electronic medical records systems. These tools span the continuum of the Defense Health System from the foxhole to the medical center in a secure environment.
