By MC4 Public Affairs


FORT DETRICK, Md. – Medical Communications for Combat Casualty Care (MC4) has been selected as the 2014 recipient of the AMSUS (The Association of Military Surgeons of the United States), The Society of Federal Health Professionals, Operational Medicine Award. MC4’s electronic medical record (EMR) 2.2.0.0 integrated product team receives this award for its leadership and accomplishments in overcoming extraordinary challenges to upgrade the Army’s deployable EMR system while maintaining mission performance. The award also recognizes MC4 for its significant accomplishments, evidence of mission support, demonstrated professional and technical performance and innovative and creative practices.

“MC4 is extremely proud and honored to be recognized by AMSUS with this award,” said MC4 Product Manager Lt. Col. Danny J. Morton. “Our MC4 EMR 2.2.0.0 integrated product team, as well as all MC4 employees, are committed to providing excellent customer service, considering new technologies and staying focused on the mission, which is ensuring that our soldiers have a secure, accessible, lifelong electronic medical record. This award is testament to that commitment.”

MC4 is the Army’s deployable EMR that captures health information for soldiers when they receive care in deployed environments, and provides medical professionals on the battlefield the capability to record soldier care, enabling improved medical decisions during all stages of the continuum of care. The system also provides commanders medical situational awareness regarding injuries and disease control, enabling them to assess unit readiness and automate medical logistics.

MC4 helps ensure that soldiers have a secure, accessible EMR that goes with them long after completing their service to our nation—providing soldiers with peace of mind that their medical data will be accessible when they apply for benefits.

“MC4’s ability to successfully complete the MC4 EMR 2.2.0.0 software upgrade within the shortest period of time in the history of the program was the culmination of good team work,” said Lt. Col. Keith G. Harley, MC4 assistant product manager and project lead integrator. “We were able to prioritize resources and efforts, as well as leverage the abilities of individual team members, resulting in upgrades to more than 3,500 active MC4 systems.”
