PROSPECTUS for the 77th MORS Symposium, Ft. Leavenworth, KS, 16-18 June 2009


Workgroup 23 welcomes papers in concepts under development and research as well as proven applications and techniques from all disciplines that highlight the use of operations research methods in the subject areas listed. Past presenters have included operations research analyst, statisticians, behavior scientists, clinical providers, medical planners, logisticians, and other scientists.


The 77th MORS Symposium theme "Responding Globally, Leading Analytically" highlights the challenge for the analyst community to develop innovative methods and applications to provide world-class healthcare to America's globally deployed military forces.


The major thrust of this working group is the development and application of quantitative methods for estimating casualties and determining the requirements to manage the casualties in the health service support system. Casualty estimation encompasses personnel losses, such as the incidence of wounded-in-action, killed-in-action, disease and non-battle injured, psychiatric casualties, and fratricide. Health service support includes, but is not limited to, the following areas: medical treatment (to include area support), patient movement, hospitalization, to include forward resuscitative surgery, dental services, preventive medicine, veterinary services, combat and operational stress control, health service logistic support, medical laboratory services, blood collection and distribution, and command, control, communications, computers, and intelligence (C4I).


The Global War on Terrorism, transformation, and military support to civilian agencies for disaster response has created a tremendous challenge in supporting the broad range of military operations. The operational environments of interest range from stability, security, transition, and reconstruction operations to major combat operations with the use of chemical, biological, radiological, and nuclear weapons.
