Each Department of Defense service has its own medical readiness automated system. The system supports data entry, data reporting, and data sharing. None of the service systems support a mature data interface to transfer data between the various systems. There are a number of impacts to DoD by having service specific systems. First, service member s data may not be entered into their service system if they go to an alternate service clinic. Second, inability to provide medical readiness reports to support joint task forces or multiservice units or installations. Third, DoD is unable to manage the health and readiness of the force without each service providing reports. This paper will provide analysis for each service medical readiness system and determine if there is a benefit to having a DoD medical readiness system.
