Abstract:

What does it mean to work in a shared service role in the United States Military There are some intellectuals who believe a shared service is interchangeable between branches of the military, while others believe there is opportunity for interoperability but not interchangeability based upon how the military branches employ personnel. This paper will discuss the definitions of interchangeability and interoperability variables in the military regarding employment of medical personnel and examine the shared service role of Damage Control Surgery DCS when leveraging medical capability in the Joint health service environment.
