JTS Mission

The mission of the Joint Trauma System (JTS) is to improve trauma readiness and outcomes through evidence-driven performance improvement. The JTS vision is that every Soldier, Sailor, Airman and Marine injured on the battlefield or in any theater of operations will be provided with the optimum chance for survival and maximum potential for functional recovery.

Download the latest copy of the JTS Tactical Combat Casualty Care (TCCC) Guidelines. The collection, developed by the JTS Committee on Tactical Combat Casualty Care (CoTCCC), provides military personnel with the resources to implement best medical practices in battlefield trauma care. Through supporting the training of deploying and deployed U.S. military personnel, the material can be used by individuals to engage in self-directed learning, and by instructors as training aids to supplement formal courseware.

AD.VI.S.OR: Real-time Telemedicine for Deployed Caregivers

JTS encourages deployed caregivers to take advantage of the 24/7/365 on-demand real-time telemedicine consultations offered by ADVISOR, the ADvanced VIrtual Support OpeRational forces system. Real-time teleconsultation brings the expert to the patient in austere settings where the patient cannot be transported to the intensive care unit for definitive care in a timely manner. Real-time support enables direct communication between the remote provider and the clinical subject matter expert, thus facilitating expert management from near the point of injury until definitive care can be administered.

ADVISOR facilitates immediate access to expert clinicians in critical care, trauma/general surgery, orthopedics, infectious disease, pediatrics, toxicology, burn care, veterinary medicine, emergency care and other specialties. A training line is available if coordinated ahead of training. ADVISOR also manages an e-mail distribution list to share information such as casualty images, vital signs flowsheet data, and short video clips.
