The Department of Defense announced today it has released a new mobile application for health care professionals, the Mild Traumatic Brain Injury Pocket Guide. This application, developed by the National Center for Telehealth and Technology (T2), gives providers a comprehensive, quick reference that includes clinical practice guidelines for assessing and treating service members and veterans who have sustained a mild traumatic brain injury, commonly referred to as a concussion.
"This new tool is about providing clinicians with quick and convenient access to clinical guidelines for concussion care. It not only allows the clinician to provide evidenced-based care but maximizes time spent with the patient," said Katherine Helmick, deputy director for traumatic brain injury.
The mobile application is free and available for download on Android smart phones at https://market.android.com/details?id=org.t2health.mtbi . Hard copies of the pocket guide can be ordered by contacting the Defense and Veterans Brain Injury Center at email@example.com or 1-800-870-9244.
