The Millennium Cohort Study

The largest longitudinal study in military history, the Millennium Cohort Study examines the long-term health of service men and women. In the late 1990s, the Department of Defense and Congress identified the need for coordinated epidemiological research to determine how military occupational exposures, including deployment-related exposures, affect long-term health. The Millennium Cohort Study meets these research challenges.

The Millennium Cohort Family Study

A longitudinal that seeks to understand how military families are coping with military life after more than a decade of war. While the impact of experiences such as deployment on the health and well-being of service members has been well documented, less is known about operational stress outcomes among military families.

Operational Infectious Diseases

Infectious Diseases Surveillance

The primary focus of OID’s work is populations-based surveillance for enteric and respiratory pathogens at over a dozen Department of Defense sites, including recruit and clinical locations, on large platforms ships of the USFF, 3rd and 7th fleets, and within the Pacific Rim Surveillance Center in Yokosuka, Japan. Our weekly report provides a snapshot of febrile respiratory illnesses (FRI) and acute gastroenteritis (AGE) surveillance.

Operational Health & Readiness

Expeditionary Medical Encounter Database (EMED)

EMED is the Department of Defense’s most comprehensive data repository, providing high-quality clinical data across the spectrum of care. EMED was developed at NHRC to improve medical mission readiness by providing researchers and medical planners with accurate injury and clinical treatment data for casualties as they proceed through the medical system from point of injury to definitive care and rehabilitation.

Joint Medical Planning Tool (JMPT)

A computer-based course of action assessment tool that models patient flow from the point of injury through definitive medical care. JMPT is based on empirical data, including over 300 patient conditions and their associated medical treatment tasks, times, required medical providers, and equipment necessary to provide patient care. (Accredited for DoD use).

Joint Trauma Analysis and Prevention of Injury in Combat (JTAPIC)

A virtual partnership supported with data from EMED and comprehensive epidemiology, analysis, and medical modeling to review injury-causing events in the combat theater with the goal of preventing future injuries.

Medical Planners' Toolkit (MPTk)

A software application that uses empirical data to predict the likelihood of operational injuries and illnesses, create casualty estimates and associated patient streams, and estimate requirements relative to theater hospitalization to service those patient streams, and provides estimates for the medical supplies needed for treatment. (Accredited for DoD use).
