Abstract:

Information obtained from a rigorous systems analysis of current field medical treatment procedures was used to produce the functional design for a prototype casualty care medical information system. The design objectives were to 1 reduce time spent on administrative functions 2eliminate the loss of important patient data, and 3generally improve patient care and medical resource management. After field testing various proposed automated features to determine their survivability and functionality, a preliminary working prototype was assembled and successfully demonstrated for the Marine Corps. The layout and operational design for implementing a full-scale system was presented. Keywords Military medicine, Combat casualty care, Automated data collection, Field medical treatment.
