Abstract : This study investigates the need for casualty liaison teams at medical facilities to accomplish the mission of patient accounting during operations in view of the fielding of Standard Installation Division Personnel Accounting System (SIDPERS) 3.0 and its interface with the Theater Army Medical Management System-Medical Patient Accounting and Reporting System (TAMMIS-MEDPAR). The functions of the unresourced casualty liaison team provided by the personnel group to medical facilities have been automated and will be fielded in the next l8-24 months. Personnel doctrine advocates relying upon the automated interface and not employing casualty liaison teams when this occurs. This scenario issue is the focus of the study. Historical cases and a future scenario are compared against the various criteria (responsibilities) of the personnel group commander to see if an automated interface alone will suffice for patient accounting. This study promotes both SIDPERS 3.0 and TAMMIS-MEDPAR interface, but identifies areas for improvement before disbanding the casualty liaison team concept.
