Abstract:

UPMC and the United States Air Force Medical Service AFMS created a strategic partnership called the Integrated Medical Information Technology System Program IMITS. IMITS focused on the implementation of advanced medical technology solutions that eliminate inefficiencies, increase utilization, and improve quality of care for active duty forces. Since the initiation of the program in late December 2002, UPMC and the AFMS successfully implemented several pilot telemedicine projects. Based on the success of the FY02 IMITS telemedicine programs, UPMC and the AFMS received additional congressional funding in FY04 and FY05 to continue advanced clinical and technology initiatives. These applications and processes were identified as areas of interest required to meet specific needs within the military and civilian health care delivery system. Each area was considered a sub-project of the overall proposal and was addressed individually from a research perspective.
