Abstract : The Department of Defense (DoD) recognizes that the Medical Readiness Strategic Plan (MRSP-2001) fails to address the need to develop enhanced capabilities, within the military, for providing humanitarian aid in operations other than war (OOTWs). Systematic, in-theater, on-site data collection can facilitate DoD's strategic planning for US military medicine in OOTWs. To facilitate that process, the primary objective of this investigation was to review the triservice patient database deployed in Zagreb. This review includes (1) a description of the origin, rationale, structure, and implementation of the database; (2) a characterization of the patients who used medical services provided by the hospital, and a description of their rate and flow through the system; (3) a description and enumeration of the patient conditions presented in outpatient visits (OPVs), admissions and dispositions (ADDs), and surgical operations (OPRs); and (4) a description of the use made of available medical services by various population subgroups of interest.
