Abstract:

The purpose of the MRSP-2001 is to provide DoD with an integrated, coordinated, and synchronized plan for attaining and sustaining medical readiness through the year 2001 and beyond. It applies to the total force all Services and components, and requires the cooperation of the line as well as the medical community in implementing the action plans. It is the compass for articulating requirements and resources, and for developing policies and procedures. It is the DoD guidebook by which we will achieve a fully capable military health care system ready to support the continuum of military operations. Medical readiness success will be measured against the objectives outlined in MRSP-2001. MRSP-2001 is organized in nine major functional areas. Each functional area and associated subarea is introduced with a concise narrative highlighting the background, current status, and objectives developed by the MRSP-2001 functional area panels. A detailed action plan is provided for each functional area objective. Action plans highlight the objectives, the tasks to be accomplished, and the primary action offices responsible for executing the objectives. To meet the intent of the plan we must 1 develop, enhance and sustain coordinated and synchronized policies, doctrine and training that facilitate medical planning, resourcing, and execution of joint and combined operations 2 employ advanced information technology solutions 3 enhance the assignment, training and sustainment of health care personnel and right-size our Service Graduate Medical Education GME programs and 4 continue to recruit and retain qualified health care personnel. Preventive medicine input was prepared in 1997.
