U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) Initiatives

Clinical Information Technology Program Office (CITPO) - CITPO is an acquisition office for centrally managed MHS clinical IT systems that support the delivery of health services throughout the MHS. The following are CITPO projects: Composite Health Care System II (CHCSII), Composite Health Care System Legacy, Clinical Information System (CIS), Preventive Health Care Application (PHCA), Defense Blood Standard System (DBSS), Defense Occupational and Environmental Health Readiness System (DOEHRS), Encoder Grouper (EG), Special Needs Program Management Information System (SNPMIS), TRICARE Online (TOL), Nutrition Management Information System (NMIS), and Veterinary Services Information Management System (VSIMS).

Defense Medical Logistics Standard Support (DMLSS) - DMLSS replaces aging military departments' (Army, Navy, and Air Force MilDeps) specific legacy medical logistics systems with one standard DoD medical logistics system. DMLSS also manages Joint Medical Asset Repository (JMAR), Customer Support on the Web (CSW), Facility Management (FM), Customer Area Inventory Management (CAIM), Equipment & Technology Management (E&TM), Stockroom/Readiness Inventory Management (SRIM), Assemblage Management (AM), Universal Data Repository (UDR), Prime Vendor Program (PV), DMLSS - Wholesale (DMLSS - W), Customer Demand Management Information Application (CDMIA), National Mail Order Pharmacy (NMOP), Readiness Application (RMA), Medical Electronic Customer Assistance (MECA), Distribution and Pricing (DAPA) Management System (MS), and Electronic Catalog (ECAT).

Executive Information/Decision Support (EI/DS) - The EI/DS program provides timely, accurate, and appropriate decision information supporting the TRICARE Management Activity (TMA) and DoD MHS mission. The EI/DS program currently consists of a data warehouse and several operational data marts supporting nearly 3,000 system users, providing a robust database and suite of decision support tools to empower the effective management of MHS health care operations. The EI/DS systems support decision making by senior MHS personnel and post-decision monitoring of the effects of decisions. EI/DS products include: MHS Management Analysis and Reporting Tool (MHS MART), Managed Care Forecasting and Analysis System (MCFAS), Population Health Operational Tracking and Optimization (PHOTO), Medical Surveillance, TMA Reporting Tools (TMART), CHAMPUS/TRICARE Medical Information System (CMIS), CHAMPUS/TRICARE Utilization Reporting and Evaluation Systems (CURES), Care Detail Information System (CDIS), and Patient Encounter Processing and Reporting (PEPR).

Resources Information Technology Program Office (RITPO) - The RITPO initiative is a project that consists of a family of capability-specific applications/systems that support the MHS "Manage the Business" and "Access to Care" and information technology requirements. The RITPO project scope includes providing information technology support for MHS personnel, scheduling, workload forecasting, and patient safety initiatives. The following are RITPO projects: Defense Medical Human Resources System - internet (DMHRSi), Central Credentials Quality Assurance System (CCQAS), Enterprise Wide Scheduling and Registration (EWS-R), Enterprise Wide Workload Forecasting (EWF), Patient Safety Reporting (PSR), and Patient Accounting System (PAS).

Expense Assignment System IV (EAS IV) - EAS IV is a standard DoD cost accounting/assignment information technology system that consists of a cost-assignment application and a data repository. The system receives information electronically from a variety of DoD financial, manpower, and workload systems, and allocates this expense information to Medical Treatment Facility/Dental Treatment Facility (MTF/DTF) direct and indirect work centers.

Theater Medical Information Program (TMIP) - TMIP provides a seamless, interoperable medical information system to support theater health services during combat or contingency operations within and across all echelons of care. The primary goal is to provide a global capability linking theater medical information databases and integration centers that are accessible to the warfighter anywhere, any time to support the mission. TMIP includes the following programs: Composite Health Care System in the Theater of Operations (CHCS NT), Composite Health Care System II - Theater (CHCS II-T), TRANSCOM Regulating and Command and Control Evacuation System (TRAC2ES), Defense Medical Logistics Standard Support Assemblage Management (DMLSS-AM), Medical Analysis Tool (MAT), Shipboard Non-Tactical Automated Data Processing Program Automated Medical System (SAMS), Medical Surveillance System (MSS), and Defense Blood Standard System (DBSS).

Third Party Outpatient Collection System (TPOCS) - TPOCS is the MHS information system used to bill for ambulatory services.

Telehealth - The use of electronic information and telecommunications technologies to provide or support clinical health care, patient and professional health-related education, public health and health administration when distance separates the participants. Current projects include Business cases, e-Learning, Policy, Teleconsultation, Pediatric Consultation, Telecardiology, Teledermatology, TeleENT, Tele Mental Health, Teleneurosurgery, Teleorthopedics, Telepathology, Teleradiology, Telementoring, and Telemonitoring.
