The article discusses medical readiness in military medicine. The principal function of military medicine is the care of the sick and wounded. Navy medicine must also provide line commanders with a force mentally and physically fit for duty. Members of the naval force must be screened for physical conditions that could affect their readiness to deploy. More recently, the medical readiness reporting system has evolved as a powerful tool for tracking medical readiness at individual, unit, and service levels. Originally known as the reserve automated medical information system, the new reporting method is a secure Web-based system that allows commanders to review and report a unit's medical status in much the same way as they now report unit readiness. It has been adopted by the entire Marine Corps in addition to the Navy Reserve force of the U.S.
