Medical Communications for Combat Casualty Care (MC4) News Release (Oct. 30, 2007): Army and Air Force complete largest fielding of EMR systems on battlefield.

FORT DETRICK, Md. -- In October, the Army and Air Force completed

the largest training and equipping effort of digital medical recording

systems--Medical Communications for Combat Casualty Care (MC4)--to date.

In six weeks, MC4 technical support teams trained 300 medical


personnel of the 332nd Expeditionary Medical Support Group (EMDG) and


equipped healthcare professionals at the Air Force Theater Hospital in


Balad, Iraq, with more than 200 ruggedized systems to aid them in


electronically capturing patient records.





The effort marked the completion of equipping medical communications jobs near me all level three


medical treatment facilities in Southwest Asia (SWA). Now, approximately


200 MTFs use MC4 to electronically document patient care on the


battlefield. The Balad hospital is the most equipped trauma care


facility in SWA. In February 2007, the 455th EMDG, Bagram Air Field in


Afghanistan, became the first Air Force medical communications jobs near me unit to use the MC4 system.







"Our partnership with the Army has enabled Air Force


facilities to provide seamless care through a common medical software


suite," said Maj. Gen. Charles B. Green, deputy surgeon general,


U.S. Air Force. "The implementation of MC4 is now providing the


capability, in the combat zone, to document patient care as a permanent


part of the electronic medical record for all warfighters.





Currently, healthcare providers at Bagram and Balad can share a


servicemember's individual patient record across the continuum of


care."





Prior to using MC4, the Air Force accessed several different

applications for tracking patient records and patient movement. These

applications will soon be phased out, ensuring Army and Air Force

medical treatment facilities are using the same joint software, provided

by the Theater Medical Information Program, resulting in a

comprehensive, lifelong medical record for all servicemembers.

Additionally, Air Force providers can exploit the


already-established MC4 training and in-theater support structure,


assuring system issues are resolved expeditiously and uniformly.





"By using MC4, electronic patient records are captured in the


central DoD clinical data repository facilitating access for all


healthcare providers," Green said. "This includes any


follow-on care at a VA facility resulting in better healthcare for our


wounded warriors. Commanders are assured that their servicemen and women


are provided documented, consistent, high-quality care anywhere they are


treated."





To date, MC4 has fielded more than 21,000 systems and trained more


than 22,000 deployed healthcare professionals throughout Iraq, Kuwait,


Afghanistan, Qatar, Europe, and South Korea, leading to the capture of


more than 2.5 million electronic health records on the battlefield.

"We've seen the benefits of providers in the Army, Navy,


Special Forces, and even the U.S. Embassy in Iraq, using MC4," said


Lt. Col. Edward Clayson, MC4's product manager. "With the Air


Force utilizing the system, we--the armed forces--are getting that much


closer to providing a complete medical picture for commanders and a


lifelong health record for all servicemembers."





MC4 integrates, fields, and supports a medical information


management system for Army tactical medical forces, enabling a


comprehensive, lifelong electronic medical record for all


servicemembers, and enhancing medical situational awareness for


operational commanders. Headquartered at Fort Detrick, Md., MC4 is under


the oversight of the Army Program Executive Office, Enterprise


Information Systems (PEO EIS) at Fort Belvoir, Va.
