Abstract:

The Telemedicine and Advanced Technologies Research Center TATRC is a jointly staffed applied research organization whose mission is to apply advanced technologies to deliver world-class healthcare to customers and providers, anytime, anywhere. Using the integrated research team IRT construct, TATRC regularly blends industry, academia, and military leaders to create synergistic successes in applied, clinically focused technology efforts. The medical logistics technologies seminar is the first attempt to achieve similar synergies built on emerging technologies applied to the improvement of logistics performance. The event was cosponsored by TATRC, the Director of Medical Materiel at the Defense Supply Center, Philadelphia, and Penn State Universitys Center for Supply Chain Research. For 3 days, academic pioneers, military medical logisticians, and industry leaders met to study and evaluate research opportunities in four focus areas 1 Enterprise-wide integration of logistics technologies 2 Use of these technologies to improve asset management and visibility 3 Supply chain management processes and technologies 4 Technologies with the potential to improve logistics supportability in the areas of energy, materials, transportation, and the environment. The sponsors selected these focus areas because of their relation to known gaps in military capability, the potential for known or emerging technologies to address the gaps, and the potential to leverage existing military, industry, and academic efforts already underway.
