Paper Abstract

The optical memory card (OC) is a plastic coated card of standard credit card size with a reflective area on which 2 to 200 megabytes of digital information can be recorded and read by lasers. The OC has the potential for serving as an archiving medium in a digital imaging network and could enhance continuity of care to the wounded soldier in the battlefield. This paper addresses the applicability of the OC to the U.S. Army combat medical care system, identifies two projects that will be investigating its use, describes the OC technology, and outlines its past promises, present status and barriers to be overcome.
