Task Integrated Medical Model (IMM) (Completed)
Last Published:  04/20/22 11:43:24 AM (Central)
Short Title: IMM
Responsible HRP Element: Exploration Medical Capability
Collaborating Org(s):
Funding Status: Completed - Task completed and produced a deliverable
Procurement Mechanism(s):
  1. To develop a software-based, stochastic decision support tool useful to clinical stakeholders and medical mission planners.
  2. To develop the ability to optimize the mass and volume for an in-flight medical system and specified level of risk.
  3. To develop a knowledge management tool for the clinical evidence used by the model (iMED database).
  4. To integrate independent predictive modules for rare medical events.
  5. To integrate Bayesian analyses for medical events with no in-flight history.
  6. To create Risk-based Medical System Design Handbooks for exploration mission planning.
  7. To achieve sufficient NASA STD 7009 verification and validation thresholds established by HRP and the exploration customer.

Integration/Unique Aspects:
The IMM accepts the results from external models and analyses.  The IMM currently derives estimates of fire/smoke/toxic inhalation risks from the ISS PRA fire module.   IMM uses incidence data generated by independent predictive health models and by Bayesian analyses that appear as unique tasks in the research plan.
