Army Using Telemedicine For Healthcare Delivery

Wounded soldiers, pregnant women, and diabetes patients are receiving medical and appointment reminders to support their rehabilitation and treatment.

The U.S. Army is using mobile technology to transmit health tips, appointment reminders, and general announcements to the cell phones of more than 300 wounded soldiers. The mobile phone-based secure messaging system called mCare is one of several innovative wireless technology solutions that the Army is deploying to improve the health of its employees.
