Medical Technology Enterprise Consortium (MTEC) -- Mobile Application Development Proof of Concept - Theater Blood

Funding Agency:
Department of the Army

 

The Medical Technology Enterprise Consortium (MTEC) is excited to post this announcement for a Request for Project Proposals (RPP) focused on the development of a mobile application prototype to support the Department of Defense’s (DoD’s) Theater Blood mission in the following three capability areas: Inventory Management, Donor Management, and Transfusion Management. The prototype capability will provide military personnel deployed in theater the ability to manage and document blood inventory, transfusions, blood product donations, and transfusion transmittable disease (TTD) testing in environments that may be disconnected, have intermittent connectivity, or have low-bandwidth connections to the network and synchronize that data with the enterprise database when connectivity is available.

The goal of this project is to support RDT&E activities required to develop prototype mobile applications that will extend current Theater Blood capabilities to users working in the DIL environment and allow them to continue to perform local business processes and functions required to ensure the integrity of the supply chain management and quality of blood products while disconnected from the network. This includes being able to view, modify, and update blood product inventory; identify and screen donors and accept donations; document TTD testing results and transfusion of blood products while disconnected, and synchronize the data with other local devices and with the enterprise Theater Blood application when connectivity to the enterprise becomes available.
