As with increasing frequency the armies of NATO member states deploy on Operations Other Than War (OOTW), there is a requirement to define predictory variables of consumption of healthcare assets by type and geographical location of operations.
This report presents the results of the analysis of the J95/EPINATO database of operational and exercise deployments.
Although the database is limited in size and scope results show a marked difference in rates of incidence of EVENTS and in the proportion of first attendances to working days lost, both in general and when analysed by deployment type.
For instance Service Assisted or Protected Evacuations (SA/PE) showed a relatively high incidence of first attendances and low incidence of working days lost for all reasons (or EVENTS) (214.5 per 1,000 personnel at risk per month - 95% Confidence Interval - Cl : 198.8 to 230.3 and 23.9 working days lost per 1,000 personnel at risk per month - 95% Cl 18.0 to 29.8).
The reverse is true for Counter Insurgency (COIN) type operations (111.55 per 1,000 personnel at risk per month - 95% Cl : 110.9 to 112.2 and 161.25 working days lost per 1,000 personnel at risk per month 95% CI : 160.5 to 162.0).
Other findings include highest attendance rates in exercise deployments for all reasons (264.7 per 1,000 personnel per month 95% Cl : 261.2 to 268.1), highest hospitalisation rates in exercise and PSO deployments for all reasons (8.7 per 1,000 personnel per month 95% CI : 7.9 to 9.4 and 9. (...)
