Abstract:

This study was conducted to determine the optimum feasible model of providing primary medical care to the active duty soldier at Fort Carson, Colorado. The battalion aid stations were extensively evaluated to determine their ability to provide initial screening of the soldiers assigned to their units. Their abilities were then compared with the abilities of centralized screening through the Troop Medical Clinics. The author concluded that a combination of methods into a semi-centralized system was most appropriate. The primary advantage the author identified was an order and organization to the sick cell program that has been nonexistent previously. Keywords Health care, Primary medical care.
