AD.VI.S.OR: Real-time Telemedicine for Deployed Caregivers
JTS encourages deployed caregivers to take advantage of the 24/7/365 on-demand real-time telemedicine consultations offered by ADVISOR, the Advanced VIrtual Support for OpeRational Forces system. Real-time teleconsultation brings the expert to the patient in austere settings where the patient cannot be transported to the intensive care unit for definitive care in a timely manner. Real-time support enables direct communication between the remote provider and the clinical subject matter expert, thus facilitating expert management from near the point of injury until definitive care can be administered.
ADVISOR facilitates immediate access to expert clinicians in critical care, trauma/general surgery, orthopedics, infectious disease, pediatrics, toxicology, burn care, veterinary medicine, emergency care and other specialties. A training line is available if coordinated ahead of training. ADVISOR also manages an e-mail distribution list to share information such as casualty images, vital signs flowsheet data, and short video clips.
