Mission

Product Manager (PdM) MC4 integrates, fields and supports a medical information management system for Army tactical medical forces, enabling a comprehensive, lifelong electronic medical record for all Service members, and enhancing medical situational awareness for operational commanders. By accomplishing this mission, the MC4 is providing the Army’s solution to Presidential and Congressional objectives, set-forth by Title 10 in 1997, which called for a medical tracking system for all deployed Service members.
 

Description
MC4 is a ruggedized system of systems containing medical software packages fielded to deployed medical forces throughout theater. Comprised of joint software (Theater Medical Information Program), and commercial-off-the- shelf and government-off-the-shelf products, MC4 provides the tools needed to record and transfer data from the foxhole to brick-and-mortar facilities worldwide. As a result, MC4 creates a bridge between the tactical and sustaining base IM/IT healthcare systems, connecting the battlefield to the Continental United States.

 

MC4Deployed medical forces use the MC4 system to gain quick, accurate access to patient histories and forward casualty resuscitation information. The system also provides units with automated tools facilitating patient tracking, medical reporting and medical logistical support. Meanwhile, combatant commanders worldwide use the MC4 system to access medical surveillance information, resulting in enhanced medical situational awareness.

 

Most importantly, MC4 is helping deployed Soldiers. By equipping deployed medical units with automated resources, MC4 helps ensure Soldiers have a secure, accessible, lifelong electronic medical record – which results better-informed healthcare providers and easier access to VA medical benefits for Soldiers.

 

MC4 was first deployed for contingency operations in 2003 and has since fielded more than 21,000 systems to deployed medical units throughout Iraq, Kuwait, Qatar, Afghanistan, Germany, Italy, Romania and South Korea. Additionally, MC4 has trained approximately 23,000 users and continues to provide 24-7 global support via its help desk, regional support centers and technical support teams through Europe, Korea and Southwest Asia.

 

Since 2003, MC4 has facilitated the capture of nearly three million electronic health records.  In 2007, MC4 expanded the use of its systems to the U.S. Air Force, completing the largest fielding and training effort in the program’s history. MC4 also expanded its use to units in South Korea where it established a permanent training and support site on Camp Casey. Additionally, MC4 vastly improved its system with the deployment of an improved inpatient medical recording system, as well as a new medical logistics tool. As a result, all electronic medical records can be accessed via a central, worldwide database and medical logisticians can facilitate medical supply management through the use of MC4.

12.1 Army Human Resource System (AHRS), Fort Belvoir, VA
Product Manager (PdM) AHRS provides the war fighter with a state of the art, cost effective, standardized and interoperable human resource solution that supports strategic and tactical management of Soldiers in a suite of global, networked, interactive, accurate military personnel systems performing War fighter accountability, strength accounting, and personnel services. On order, PM AHRS will transition selected AHRS functions to the Defense Integrated Military Human Resource System (DIMHRS), while continuing to develop and operate those components which complement DIMHRS.  AHRS is a system of systems providing the tools to locate, manage, and serve the Soldier – anywhere in the world. 
Products and Services: Deployed Theater Accountability Software (DTAS)



DTAS, the world’s first enterprise-wide Secret Internet Protocol Router Network (SIPRNet) personnel accountability system, provides near real-time data on individual personnel status, unit strengths and deployment history. DTAS is both a client-server application to allow tactical units uninterrupted access to their data while still updating higher HQ when communications are available, and a Web-Enabled application for Theater/Command level personnel to manage units and analyze the data. This visibility is vital in determining the war fighting capability of the Army and subordinate commands within a specific theater.  DTAS can provide commanders and personnel specialists with near real-time accountability of deployed military personnel, civilians, contractors and foreign nationals in-Theater by name, SSN, unit, location and day.  It consists of an enterprise server suite, theater server suite(s), and the unit mobile system(s).  It can operate under battlefield communications environments with limited bandwidth, intermittent connectivity or within operational constraints while disconnected. The DTAS Mobile User System hierarchy extends theater level command down to tactical battalions and separate companies, using each unit’s existing computer infrastructure linked to theater. Each mobile system reports on unit personnel and synchronizes with the theater server suite. The theater suite provides deployment history data to the enterprise suite. The enterprise suite interfaces with numerous personnel management systems to provide DTAS with descriptive personnel data, eliminating the need for duplicative data entry.



All Soldiers and Marines, plus select DoD civilians, contractors and navy units in the Central Command (CENTCOM) Area of Operations are being tracked in DTAS.  DTAS is expanding into the continental United States.  U.S. Army Human Resource Command, Soldier Record Data Center-Alexandria (SRDC-A) acts as the primary customer and provides all requirements associated with DTAS development.



Tactical Personnel System (TPS)
TPS is a stand-alone portable system providing essential personnel functionality to support a commander’s tactical decision-making process by creating a deployable “go to war” personnel strength automated file.  TPS functionality provides soldier accountability, personnel manifesting, jump manifesting, and task force and crew building.  Units manifest arriving/departing individuals in TPS before arrival or departure. TPS has the ability to export a Soldier manifest file as input to the DTAS allowing mass Soldier import at arrival in theater at a port of debarkation.



Electronic Military Personnel Office (eMILPO)
The eMILPO System is a web-based single database providing real-time update capability, used by the entire active army personnel community to manage all active, mobilized reserve, and National Guard Soldiers.  eMILPO provides commanders with a Web-based, interactive, and accurate military personnel system that performs strength accounting, personnel services, personnel accountability, reassignment information, promotions, reserve component accounting, and Personnel Tempo (PERSTEMPO).  eMILPO provides information used by over forty other Army and DoD systems including DTAS, DEERS, ITAPDB, TOPMIS, and EDAS.  eMILPO’s MyERB module allows every active enlisted Soldier to view his or her record online from anywhere in the world.  eMILPO’s reporting and analysis tools allow commanders and staff at all levels to determine unit personnel readiness, OPTEMPO, and current unit status.  eMILPO is implemented on the DoD unclassified but sensitive internet protocol router network with single sign-on access through the AHRS web portal via Army Knowledge Online.
