Project Management Offices
Each of the USAMRDC Project Management Offices (PMO) manages specific materiel product lines.
The Warfighter Protection and Acute Care PMO focuses on developing products to sustain Service Member health and maintain operational readiness through continually improving product acquisition strategies, and by implementing innovative solutions to accelerate the development and fielding of medical products. Its developmental efforts are focused on vaccines and biologics, drugs (antimicrobial and pain management), infectious diseases diagnostics, and hemorrhage control and resuscitation products to prevent, diagnose, and treat U.S. Service Members both in CONUS and during deployments.
The Warfighter Brain Health PMO seeks to develop and deliver brain health medical solutions across the continuum of care to aid in the detection, prevention, and treatment of neurotrauma and the psychological health of our U.S. Service Members. It supports the development of biomarkers and non-invasive assessment devices to detect Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), clinical drugs and therapies to treat TBI, and novel markers and treatments for Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, and other psychological health conditions.
The Warfighter Expeditionary Medicine and Treatment PMO seeks to field U.S. Food and Drug Administration-licensed medical devices, drugs, and biologics that fulfill the unmet requirements identified by the Service end user. This is accomplished either through the development of a new capability or by improving upon existing capabilities. Its developmental efforts are focused on products for hemorrhage detection and control, improving organ support, advancing soft and hard tissue treatment and repair, managing sensory organ damage, and the enabling technologies needed to support these advancements.
The Warfighter Health, Performance, and Evacuation PMO develops, rapidly prototypes, and procures medical support products for field hospital infrastructure, preventive medicine, combat casualty care support systems, military operational medicine, and ground and aeromedical evacuation vehicles. Its efforts are focused on Preventive Medicine, Operational Medicine, Medical Evacuation and Treatment Platforms, Medical Shelters and Infrastructure, Combat Casualty Care Support Systems, and Medical Prototype Development
The Warfighter Deployed Medical Systems PMO is the focal point for medical materiel life cycle management in the U.S. Army. It consists of two Product Management Offices:
- The Medical Modernization Product Management Office develops, procures, and manages the modernization of fielded medical devices. It manages the requirement to maintain a fielded capability when the existing medical equipment becomes unsupportable or unaffordable due to obsolescence with the need to modernize and replace that equipment.
- The Medical Devices Assemblage Management Product Management Office organizes and manages all of the U.S. Army equipment packages (Medical Unit Assemblages) that are fielded to support patient and animal care form Roles of Care 1 through 3. On average, it manages 350 product lines that are consolidated into 140 medical unit assemblages and 210 medical equipment items. It coordinates with the Defense Logistics Agency-Troop Support, Health Readiness Center of Excellence, Army Materiel Command, and the U.S. Army Medical Logistics Command on acquisition and logistics actions to integrate new and modernized medical equipment that protect and treat the Warfighter into the fielded assemblages.
The Enterprise Information Technology Project Management Office (eIT) PMO sustains a suite of enterprise Information Management/Information Technology (IM/IT) solutions that meet the needs of the Command and its collaborators. This involves planning and executing the acquisition of required medical research IT solutions, and the configuration and sustainment of IT solutions for USAMRDC's medical research activities in accordance with Department of Defense, US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Assistant Secretary of the Army for Acquisition, Logistics, and Technology, and Army Futures Command policies and regulations. It also involves coordinating with USAMRDC Medical Research and Development Functional Sponsors in the prioritization and successful implementation of Command-wide IT solutions. All FDA required eIT PMO products are compliant with the overarching requirements found in the FDA Title 21 of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR), Part 11, for Electronic Records; Electronic Signatures.
