Essential Functions and Job Responsibilities:
The main mission is to conduct health screenings on all pre-/post-deployment personnel (service members, contractor personnel, and/or civilian personnel) to include Separation Health Physical Examinations (SHPE) on post-deployment military personnel. General soldier readiness health screenings along with primary care evaluations, diagnostics and treatment for all service members are also included in the scope of the mission. CP shall perform all procedures and duties that are normal to the scope of that provider’s particular specialty and for which privileges are granted by the MTF in those specialties where privileges are required. These are essentially the same duties as those required of any Medical Corps Officer or government Civil Service healthcare provider of similar experience and in similar duty assignments. Key to each process is the roster of personnel to be screened. These rosters will be provided by the Medical Command (MEDCOM) Liaison and will be used by the contractor to ensure that all personnel going thru the screening are registered in appropriate information systems (CHCS, Medical Protection System (MEDPROS), etc). Proper pre-planning and data entry will help to facilitate a timely throughput which can number in the hundreds.
Tele-Health Services – Personal Healthcare Providers may be required to perform duties via Tele-Health as dictated by the Soldier Readiness Processing (SRP) mission. Tele-Health is described as the use of electronic information and telecommunications technologies to support long-distance pre-mobilization, mobilization, deployments, and post-deployments. Tele-health may include, record screenings, interviews, referrals, clinical health care, patient and professional health-related education, public health and health administration. Technologies utilized for Tele-Health services include videoconferencing, the internet, store-and-forward imaging, streaming media, and terrestrial and wireless communications.
Mobilization. The process begins with a series of administrative and medical briefings and an overview of the mobilization and medical stations. Contractor’s staff shall review a computer-generated pre-deployment health assessment form with each individual going through the process. Individuals are asked by CP to accurately complete the form. CP also complete a review of the individual’s MEDPROS record to determine what deficiencies the individual might have and any such deficiencies are annotated on the form. The individual then proceeds to each station. MEDPROS is again checked at each station. The stations are Laboratory, Immunizations, Dental, Vision Screening, and Audiology. When all stations are complete, the service member is seen by a provider who reviews all the data and discusses any health concerns with the service member. If a health issue is identified that requires further evaluation, the service member is seen in Case Management where a file is opened and appointments are made with the appropriate clinic.
Demobilization. The process begins with a series of briefings which include administrative, medical and entitlement briefs. Currently, a post deployment health assessment form is completed by the service member prior to leaving theater. The completed form is reviewed with the individual by the CP who notes any changes. MEDPROS is checked and the CP annotates any changes onto the form. The individual then proceeds thru the following stations: Laboratory, Immunizations, Vision screening and Audiology. When all stations are complete, the individual is seen by a provider who reviews the form and discusses any health concerns that the individual may have. If health issues are identified, a consult is placed and the individual is seen by a Case Manager who opens a file and schedules an appointment with the appropriate clinic.
