Human Research Program Elements: (1) BHP:Behavioral Health & Performance (archival in 2017)
Human Research Program Risks: (1) Sleep:Risk of Performance Decrements and Adverse Health Outcomes Resulting from Sleep Loss, Circadian Desynchronization, and Work Overload (IRP Rev F)
Human Research Program Gaps: (1) Sleep Gap 08:We need to develop individualized scheduling tools that predict the effects of sleep-wake cycles, light and other countermeasures on performance, and can be used to identify optimal (and vulnerable) performance periods during spaceflight (IRP Rev E)
Task Description: This project integrated the Circadian Performance Simulation Software (CPSS) biomathematical model developed by the Harvard Biomathematical Modeling Unit (Dr. Elizabeth Klerman, Ph.D.) with the Behavioral Health and Performance Dashboard Software tool (BHP-DS) to support scenario modeling of astronaut schedules (inputs related to sleep, duty, and light exposure) to aid in the selection of fatigue countermeasures within the Behavioral Health and Performance Dashboard (BHP-DS). The BHP-DS was developed to address the need to track a variety of astronaut behavioral health indicators so that behavioral and performance issues can be detected and mitigated at an early stage. It is not intended to be used to automatically establish a diagnosis but instead provide a dashboard of behavioral health indicators placed within the context of behavioral health stressors. The target users of the BHP-DS are flight surgeons and Op Psy Personnel. All data used by the tool is encrypted and securely stored and accessible to approved NASA users (e.g., flight surgeons). User access to the BHP-DS is controlled by local user groups on the server and by the existing NASA active directory infrastructure (password protected). The BHP-DS was developed to be modular in design to support the implementation of countermeasures developed by other research groups in the NASA and National Space Biomedical Research Institute (NSBRI) community.

Research Impact/Earth Benefits: The core technology for BHP-DS meets a compelling commercial need in the field of medical care delivery on Earth. BHP-DS will enable tracking of patient time series data in the context of factors that affect patient health and treatment. It will enhance the efficiency and effectiveness of medical care that is delivered remotely (e.g., rural areas, specialists serving a nation-wide patient base) and a medical care delivery care paradigm that involves one to many (single physician providing medical monitoring to large number of patients).

Task Progress & Bibliography Information FY2015 
Task Progress: We accomplished all stated objectives of this one-year project: (1) Develop engineering requirements for a software module and user interface to scenario modeling of astronaut schedules within the BHP-DS; (2) Develop user interface mockups; (3) Implement the software within the BHP-DS platform; (4) Develop a blueprint for future development.
