US Air Force Sees Growing Demand for AFRL-Developed Electronic Health Record Tool

The U.S. Air Force said the Battlefield Assisted Trauma Distributed Observation Kit joint integrated electronic health record has seen a rise in demands for demonstrations after it was chosen as the software for point-of-injury and en-route care in July 2022.

According to Gregory Burnett, lead engineer for the Air Force Research Laboratory’s 711th Human Performance Wing product development branch, all U.S. military services have used BATDOK for evaluation and testing in various joint exercises and have integrated the application into their pipelines. He added that armed forces from the United Kingdom, Morocco and Australia are also testing BATDOK.

BATDOK, a medical documentation tool developed by AFRL researchers, was selected by the Joint Operational Medicine Information Systems to replace pen-and-paper methods, the Air Force said.

The toolkit allows medics to monitor multiple vital information simultaneously at the point of injury, identify each patient’s medical treatment injury and inform on the best course of action for next-level care. It uses operator-centric, intuitive and user-friendly mobile interfaces to facilitate maximum awareness and documentation of in-field patient care.

Some of the app’s functions are patient assessment, information coordination and collaboration and record transfers.
