The U.S. Army Medical Research & Materiel Command - Telemedicine & Advanced Technology Research Center (TATRC) performs medical reconnaissance and special operations to address critical gaps that are underrepresented in DoD medical research programs. TATRC is an office of the headquarters of the US Army Medical Research and Materiel Command (USAMRMC). TATRC fosters research on health informatics, telemedicine/m-Health, medical training systems, and computational biology, and promotes and manages science and engineering in other key Scientific Domains. Through an extensive network of partners, TATRC is focused at both ends of the research spectrum, exploring models of high risk and innovative research, and putting research findings into the hands of warfighters while looking toward wider civilian utility. TATRC augments core medical research programs through special funding and partnership opportunities.
The Mobile Health Innovation Center (MHIC), located on Fort Gordon outside of Augusta, Georgia, provides a unique capability for TATRC. The MHIC serves as an innovation center of excellence for evaluating mobile health technologies and networks by providing subject matter expertise and a unique laboratory environment for intramural and extramural research activities in support of service members, beneficiaries, patients and Role 1 (first responders) through Role 4 (definitive health care facilities) of the military healthcare system (MHS) prior to enterprise wide deployment.
