Charles River Analytics Gets Additional Army Funds for Casualty Care Mobile App Development

The U.S. Army has awarded Charles River Analytics a 29-month, $1M contract to continue to develop a mobile application designed to predict outcomes in military patients with traumatic injury.

Charles River said Thursday it aims to help the service branch cut the rate of preventable trauma deaths through the Ensemble Prediction for Combat Casualty Care tool.

Max Metzger, principal investigator of the EPIC3 project, said the app works by compiling diagnostic and treatment methods, sending medical alerts to medics and providing them access to guidance with a tailored interface.

EPIC3 uses machine learning, medical sensor data processing and model trauma treatment procedures such as the Methodology for Annotating Skill Trees.

The technology is built upon other Charles River-made battlefield injury diagnostic tools that include the TMT tourniquet training system and the PROMPTER training platform.

Charles River noted that EPIC3 is one of its healthcare support and training initiatives focused on sensor and sensing technologies as well as medical training, therapy and decision support.
