The U.S. Air Force Medical Support Agency, Surgeon General Support Logistics Office requested that the Naval Health Research Center NHRC conduct a proof-of-concept study to assess the validity and feasibility of using NHRCs medical modeling tool, the Enterprise Estimating Supplies Program EESP, for the development and management of Air Force medical Allowance Standards as a baseline for standardization throughout the services. The primary objective of this study was to provide the Air Force with the ability to validate the clinical requirements of the Aeromedical Evacuation In-Flight Kit. The Air Force Allowance Standard addresses the equipment, medicines, consumables, and durables required for an Aeromedical Evacuation Crew mission. The EESP database of medical task and supply profiles was used to identify patient conditions appropriate to the mission Concept of Operation of this Unit Type Code. Using NHRCs relational database, clinical tasks were mapped to each condition. Once the tasks and patient conditions were mapped to one another, supplies were associated to each task, and the resulting lists of equipment, medications, durables, and consumables were assessed for suitability by a subject matter expert panel review to ensure every inventory line item meets operational and clinical needs.
