History of TATRC MHIC
TATRC established a field office in 2006 to facilitate a closer collaborative relationship with the robust medical operation environment within the Southeast region. This field office was named TATRC South.
Originally created in 1995, the office researched and developed initiatives in telemedicine, patient simulation, distance education, and other projects as a subordinate organization of the Southeast Regional Medical Command (SERMC). As telemedicine technologies matured, it became clear to the Office of the Surgeon General of the Army that this capability would be better leveraged as a component of TATRC. By late 2005, courses of action were underway for realignment of the office from the SERMC to the US Army Medical Research and Materiel Command.
From 2006 – 2013, the field office operated under the name TATRC South. However, in July 2013, the office was renamed as the Mobile Health Innovation Center, TATRC MHIC. This name change was reflective of a focus area of expertise in mobile health applications and systems.
Currently, TATRC MHIC’s contribution in support of the TATRC mission has included programmatic support, management of special projects, and development of strategic partnerships.
