The United States Transportation Command (Scott Air Force Base, Ill.) is working with New York-based Information Builders to devise patient movement plans based on urgent medical needs, available facilities, in-transit visibility and enterprise-wide cost and performance analytics, it says.

The deployment of a pervasive operational business intelligence system is designed to enable the Command to be more efficient in evacuation and care activities, minimizing suffering and improving care, says the company. Authorized users can generate detailed reports to monitor the status of patients from the beginning of transport to the outcome of treatment, potentially saving the lives of thousands of soldiers, it touts.

The U.S. Transportation Command, working under the Department of Defense, is a joint command responsible for creating and implementing global asset deployment and distribution solutions.
