Temkin Associates, LLC dba Pleiotek has been awarded a Phase II SBIR program by the Defense Health Agency (DHA) JOMIS office to continue its research and development work on novel technologies and approaches for solving the data movement problems for patient acquisition and transfer in Disconnected Intermittent and Low-bandwidth (DIL) environments (aka Theater). As part of this work, Pleiotek will be advancing our now patented prototype storage and transfer device (Patent #10,786,395) from a breadboard prototype into a fully functional device ready for field testing. In addition to device development, Pleiotek will be advancing our patent pending compression algorithm for structured data and applying it to be used by Android and iOS devices to transfer larger amounts of patient medical data via Near Field Communication tags, QR Codes, and directly between mobile devices.
Pleiotek CEO, Melissa Temkin, has said “We are incredibly proud and honored to be able to develop innovative and novel technologies and methods that could one day improve the care and outcomes of our nation’s heroes.” Mrs. Temkin goes on to say, “Our patented technology has the potential to one day enable frontline Medics and Corpsman to accurately document and transfer interventions performed on the wounded warrior from point of injury, moving that information with them as they are transferred from Role 1 through Role 4 echelons of care”.
