The U.S. Department of Defense is conducting market research for information regarding simulation training of prolonged field care scenarios.
This Request for Information (RFI) is seeking organizations researching, developing, and offering modeling and simulation systems for use in military medical education and training to support scenarios in which teams are required to stabilize and treat patients longer at the point of care setting.
Prolonged Field Care includes medical care applied beyond doctrinal planning timelines and is not limited to battle injury training. Evidence collected from data-driven casualty estimations and disease or non-battle injury/battle injury rates are strongly encouraged for use to inform what injuries and pathologies need to be considered to be trained using medical simulation system.
Work in this area should contribute to updating current or creating new military medical education and training materials or to develop and evaluate commercial off-the-shelf or new integrated medical simulation systems.
The effort is on behalf of the Joint Program Committee 1 (JPC-1) Medical Simulation and Information Sciences Research Program (MSISRP) which provides programmatic funding recommendations for Department of Defense Health Affairs medical research, development, testing, and evaluation dollars related to medical training and education efforts.
Further details are available via Solicitation Number: W23RYX-17-RFI-PFC. The RFI response deadline is 18 November 2016.
