The Navy held an event to generate support for its Expeditionary Health Service Support Capability Based Assessment, according to a Thursday Navy Bureau of Medicine and Surgery Public Affairs press release.
The conference was held from March 19 to 21 and attracted nearly 100 medical and operational specialists who gathered to discuss best medical practices moving forward.
EHSS CBA and the Joint Capability Integration and Development System are designed to provide long-term analysis at how the Navy can better align Navy Medicine with warfighter needs, according to the release.
The analysis will run from 2015 to 2025.
In conjunction, CBA will also conduct a functional review of areas like casualty management, patient movement, human performance, health engagement operations, humanitarian assistance and disaster relief.
