User-Centered Design

Client

Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences (USUHS) and Armed Forces Radiobiology Research Institute (AFRRI)

Description

USUHS educates, trains and prepares uniformed services health professionals, officers and leaders to provide direct support for the Military Health System, the National Security and National Defense Strategies of the United States and the readiness of our Armed Forces. AFRRI supports the mission to preserve and protect the health and performance of U.S. military personnel through research and training that advance understanding of the effects of ionizing radiation.

The Challenge

USUHS and AFRRI needed a mobile version of a radiological assessment triage tool based on recognized assessment and treatment principles that would enable radiological and nuclear emergency response professionals to triage suspected casualties.

The Solution

tiag applied its expertise in user-centered design, mobile application development, usability testing and project management to develop and deliver the mobile First-Responders Radiological Assessment Triage (mFRAT) application for iOS and Android devices. In tiag’s distinct, user-centered design process, tiag’s development team incorporated AFRRI’s evidence-based medical data, assessment and treatment principles into the mFRAT framework. During and after production, tiag’s development specialists tested and validated mFRAT to ensure effectiveness and ease of use.

The Result

Entering minimal text to return dose-specific and diagnostic output, radiological and nuclear emergency response team members can now quickly differentiate between the concerned public and exposed individuals for appropriate use of medical resources.

Proudly Serving Those Who Serve

tiag takes pride in its people, achievements, innovative processes, and continuous record of successes in directly leading mission critical program initiatives in support of those who serve us in the military and civilian sectors of our government.
