Abstract : This document presents an overall operational concept for health services in an active theater of operations during the 1986-2000 timeframe. The emphasis is placed on the medical support requirements above division level and includes corps and theater level medical support requirements, (Medical requirements rearward of the COMMZ are not addressed.) The recent 'Division 86' studies and the revived concern for the environment of the integrated battlefield were the primary factors which motivated this paper. Its emphasis is on health services concepts, organization, and systems that vary significantly from today's doctrine.
