DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE - CONGRESSIONALLY DIRECTED MEDICAL RESEARCH PROGRAMS

Medical Simulation and Information Sciences Cover Image
The Joint Program Committee-1/Medical Simulation and Information Sciences (JPC-1/MSIS) Research Program plans, coordinates, and oversees a science and technology program focused on improving military medical training and education through medical modeling and simulation systems addressing combat casualty training, medical readiness, health focused initiatives, and developer tools for medical educators as well as improving health information sciences through increased interoperability, strategic planning, process development, and medical applications.

JPC-1/MSIS works with the services and joint agencies to address gaps and requirements as identified by the Military Health System (MHS) and is responsible for programming research in the following areas:

  • Medical Modeling, Simulation, & Training
  • Health Information Sciences

The establishment of the JPC-1/MSIS has enabled a more collaborative process to identify and validate the research initiatives pertaining to the military. The program assists in the identification, assessment and transition of relevant emerging technologies that are of value into the MHS. This ultimately allows the US Army Medical Research and Materiel Command (USAMRMC) and the Defense Health Agency (DHA) to better align its research and development efforts with the needs of the MHS. Additional information about JPC-1/MSIS is available at: https://mrmc.amedd.army.mil/index.cfm?pageid=medical_r_and_d.msis.overview.
