The Military Interoperable Digital Hospital Testbed MIDHT is a five-year program of research to develop a real-world testbed environment in Southwestern Pennsylvania. The purpose is to research and evaluate Health Information Exchange HIE and health information technology HIT and services that make health information readily available to consumers and providers. Ideally this will allow for the secure transfer of information between private sector rural providers, federal partners and patients. MIDHT has defined requirements and solutions to optimize healthcare resources for rural communities and identified lessons learned and best practices that benefit both the global Military Health System MHS environment and stakeholders in the region. The Department of Defense DoD and Conemaugh Memorial Medical Center CMMC have common requirements for HIE, connecting disparate systems and providers and enabling secure provider-provider and provider-consumer e-communications. Minimal evidence is available on what business, clinical and technical solutions can be used to overcome the lack of specialists, infrastructure and geographical barriers associated with the delivery of care in rural communities.
