It is a true honor for our team at ModRN Health to support our colleagues at hospitals and other partners dealing with surges of patients. Nothing is more fulfilling than seeing the relief on their faces as they realize that help has arrived.” CaRessa Hutchinson, CEO ModRN Health.

ModRN Health is one of the teams supporting the U.S. Army Medical Research and Development Command’s (USAMRDC) Telemedicine and Advanced Technology Research Center (TATRC) for the rapid development, deployment, and testing of the National Emergency Tele-Critical Care Network (NETCCN).

NETCCN was born from the learned experience that, in short, there are simply never enough qualified clinicians to provide care during large scale emergencies. NETCCN – a cloud-based, low-resource, stand-alone health information management system with the capability of creating innumerable “virtual critical care wards” via current handheld mobile devices – is already making a substantial impact in supporting COVID-19.

ModRN Health is one of the clinical teams providing medical expertise to NETCCN for COVID-19 hot spots. ModRN Health supported a hospital in western Puerto Rico from Nov 4 – Nov 17. Due to the success of the pilot, the Puerto Rico hospital requested additional support from ModRN during December.

ModRN Health and its partners are assisting the teams supporting TATRC in refining strategies and proving out new healthcare support models for pandemic and disaster-related critical care shortages. Discussions are underway to implement program refinements as well as how to best support surging COVID 19 cases.

The next focus areas for new NETCCN capabilities include:

  • Accelerating Medical Device Interoperability and Autonomy for integrating mechanical ventilators and/or infusion pumps to the NETCCN platform,
  • Technology in Disaster Environments Learning Accelerator to use real-time data to build continuous learning for improving disaster health support.
