Readiness : Observations and comments from a medical team deployment.
The evolving strategy of the United States in dealing with the changing world order calls for a force structure capable of fighting and winning two nearly simultaneous major regional conflicts and conducting a range of other military operations.
Readiness is a key factor in this new strategy.
Consequently, major paradigm shifts are occurring within the Air Force Medical Service.
Maintaining current and accurate medical records on personnel to meet deployment requirements is a significant challenge.
Historically, time and resources are consumed determining the deployability of troops prior to a deployment.
This adds to the cost of doing business and increases the time required to clear the deploying team, even though there is an established process to avoid these very problems.
The experience of a recent medical team deployment to Bosnia is discussed.
Future directions given the implementation of TRICARE, the Preventive Health Assessment Program, and the Strategic Health Resourcing Plan are also considered.
