Medical Logistics Supply Chain
Case Study - Medical Logistics Supply Chain
Defense Medical Logistics (DML) supports the Defense Health Agency (DHA) health care delivery mission by providing medical materiel, supplies, facilities, and services that are essential to patient care in peacetime and wartime. It also promotes wartime readiness and sustainability. The Joint Medical Logistics Functional Development Center (JMLFDC) is the lead technical developer for DML and recently initiated a major technical refresh to merge both the programmatic and technical components of all existing DML applications into a single program, the DML-Enterprise Services (ES), and a single modernized application, LogiCole. The Defense Medical Logistics Standard Support (DMLSS) capability of the DML-ES is highly leveraged to provide functions such as Asset Management, Materiel Management, Assemblage Maintenance, Equipment and Biomedical Maintenance Management, and Facility/Environment of Care Management.
Under the DML-ES program, ManTech supports the JMLFDC operations, which includes DMLSS and LogiCole global deployments across the Departments of Defense (DoD) and Veterans Affairs (VA), cybersecurity, data center operations, maintenance and enhancement of the DevSecOps CI/CD ecosystem, cloud migration and systems engineering activities.
Today, LogiCole is the DMLSS replacement system. It combines the business capabilities from the DMLSS application, the Joint Medical Asset Repository (JMAR), the Data Capability Assessment Model (DCAM), portions of Theater Enterprise-Wide Logistics Systems (TEWLS) and portions of Project Management in IT Security (PMITS). Bringing this data and these capabilities together into one application, presented in a highly intuitive “Amazon-like” storefront, makes the entire DML mission more efficient and, ultimately, more effective for the warfighter and the medical professionals taking care of these heroes.
