The use of intelligent real time technologies to implement, monitor and forecast medical readiness
MetadataShow full item record
One of the various essentials of military readiness is the administering and continual execution of medical immunizing agents. Service members and civilian personnel working under contract are required to maintain a satisfactory level of medical readiness pursuant to the environment or platform they are assigned to. However the guidance that oversees and classifies this "satisfactory" level is numerous in volume, broad in terms of definition, and difficult to interpret in terms of the methodology used to assign a specific rating. Because of the many interpretations of medical readiness, receiving a designated rating of C2 is considered to be acceptable in wartime interactions. Therefore, annual immunization requirements may be neglected throughout one's tenure while still engaging in a wartime environment with the risk of becoming exposed to influenza infection. The collection, tracking, and analyzing of medical readiness data is interpreted differently thereby prohibiting the facilitation and compilation of adequate information. Medical systems are developed using many different technologies that omit the ability to interface with one another, are in adaptive to change, and do not provide an interactive gateway to permit service members to become proactive and responsible for their own medical readiness state.
