What if the alarms from multiple medical devices made by different manufacturers could be intelligently processed so that critical notifications are never missed?
What if doctors could use modeling to create hypothetical medical scenarios the way pilots use flight simulators?
What if life-saving information could be seamlessly delivered to the right person at the right time through a portable device as small as a tablet?
Lockheed Martin is working to answer those questions now. With with more than 20 years of healthcare expertise, we are innovating tomorrow...today. ICE STORM™ (Integrated Clinical Environment; Systems, Training, Operations, Research, Methods) technology applies our expertise in engineering excellence, modeling and simulation, analytics and technology integration to improve the full lifecycle of the clinical healthcare environment.
By creating a virtual systems integration laboratory for hospitals, medical providers can connect devices, patients, clinicians and processes in a simulated clinical setting.
From process flow improvements leading to increased efficiency to the ability to analyze outcomes before making necessary changes, ICE STORM is transforming healthcare. Capabilities include:
- Systems integration that enables medical device interoperability and decreases the risk of costly and potentially deadly medical errors.
- Advanced analytics to enable healthcare providers to detect fraud and waste, and assess clinical workflow.
- Simulation that will allow clinicians to use advanced virtual reality technologies to prepare for high-pressure environments.
- Healthcare delivery initiatives designed to improve cost modeling and clinical decision support systems.
Through one of our partnerships, we are working jointly with John Hopkins Medicine to develop the intensive care unit of the future. Through the exploration of “what if” scenarios in a safe, simulated environment, new ideas on making ICU operations more efficient are being explored.
Innovation in healthcare is the driving force in the quest to balance cost containment and quality of care, two of the biggest challenges facing healthcare systems in the U.S. and around the world. Lockheed Martin provides the game-changing innovation to help our customers rise to the challenges of tomorrow.
