Telemedicine & Advanced Technology Research Center

Core Research Divisions

TATRC performs research to address critical gaps that are underrepresented in DoD medical research programs. There are four major divisions that allow TATRC to manage and address these gaps.

BHSAI

BHSAI Data Sciences Division

The mission of the BHSAI Data Sciences Division uses data, machine learning, and artificial intelligence in capturing human traits, as well as in modeling biological and physiological systems to create cost-effective and robust solutions that enhance individual Soldier performance & health, prevent injuries, and optimize combat casualty care. We prioritize in silico models when environment or safety concerns prevent viable animal or human research.

DHIC

Digital Health Innovation Center

The Digital Health Innovation Center (DHIC) develops and tests novel digital health solutions within an interoperable ecosystem that connects data to humans across the spectrum of healthcare – from optimal health, to casualty care, to palliation at the end of life – accelerating optimal human decision making.

MedRAS

Medical Robotics and Autonomous Systems

The Medical Robotics and Autonomous Systems (MedRAS) Division develops novel robotic solutions, controlled remotely or autonomously, that team with humans to reduce task saturation, perform in contexts that are unsafe for humans, and ultimately increase the capability and thus capacity of caregivers at the point of need.

MMSIV

Medical Modeling, Simulation, Informatics and Visualization

The Medical Modeling, Simulation, Informatics and Visualization (MMSIV) Division is dedicated to studying technology’s impact on casualty care in militarily relevant contexts using high-fidelity simulation. The Nexus is a forum for research and collaboration, bringing together scientists, engineers, clinicians, advanced developers, and other stakeholders around simulation events of challenging healthcare and to solve problems together.
