    Military Medical Metrics

    The IMIHO Technical Working Group (TWG) prepared a proposal document, titled “Military Medical Metrics” that aims at collecting and sharing performance information related to medical operations, in order to produce actionable conclusions regarding efficiency and effectiveness of Hospitals. The proposal has been authorized by the Ministers of the SEDM Nations, during the SEDM Ministerial Meeting, hosted by Athens and performed via VTC on 15 Oct 2020.

    The establishment and periodic evaluation of key indicators may improve the quality of medical services rendered to military personnel and identify sub-optimal areas.

    The functionality and data will be implemented, after determination of requirements, including security considerations and protection of personal information, as well as national and user feedback.

    The proposal will be implemented as a service to the IMIHO Portal, without cost to nations, under provisions of the “IMIHO Guidance and Framework” Document.

    Further details will be provided in the future.

    The document is available here (registration required).
