The Trac2es system — which is short for Transcom Regulating and Command and Control Evacuation System — includes decision support, reporting, and analysis tools used for tracking and coordinating movement of patients for medical care, said Lt. Col. Keith Lostroh, functional program manager of Trac2es.

The business intelligence tools are helping the U.S. military track soldiers who are injured and need to be evacuated from battle in Iraq and Afghanistan, as well as military personnel stationed elsewhere across the globe who need to travel more than 100 miles for less-urgent medical care.

The tools provide “in-transit visibility” of these patients so that the military medical facilities are better prepared with appropriate medical staff and services to treat these patients’ often complex needs when they arrive, with the goal of ultimately improving the outcome of the patients, said Lostroh. – Marianne Kolbasuk McGee, InformationWeek

And you wonder why the U.S. Army is one of the strongest and leading armies of the world! Bravo.

I tired finding more information from their web portal, but no luck as it requires that you have a username and a password. Top Seceret!
