Army medics in several units are using the Medical Occupational Data System to track soldiers' medical records while they embark on the next round of anthrax immunizations at Baghdad International Airport.
The database has eliminated the need to pass a soldier's paper medical records from medic to medic as he moves across the battlefield. MODS is accessible from anywhere in the world, Army officials said.
During Operation Iraqi Freedom, MODS also kept track of soldiers who needed vaccinations and immunizations. MODS, whose home page is mods.army.mil
