Background information regarding the Soldier Readiness Processing Center (SRPC) & its Mission:
1. Process. The main mission is conduct mobilization/deployment, demobilization/re-deployment, and Soldier readiness for all service members, civilians, and Contractors to deploy/re-deploy from the theater of operations. Key to each process is the roster of service member participating in the activity. These are provided by the Mobilization Brigade and will be used by the Contractor to ensure all service member are registered in appropriate information systems (CHCS, Medical Protection System (MEDPROS, etc.). Proper pre-planning and data entry will improve throughput through the SRP site.
2. Mobilization. The process begins with a series of administrative and medical briefs and an overview of the mobilization and medical stations. Contractor staff shall review a computer generated pre-deployment form (DA 2795) with each service member. Service members are asked by MAP/HCP to accurately complete the questionnaire. The MAP/HCP also completes a review of the service member’s MEDPROS to determine what deficiencies the service member might have and these are annotated on the SRP checklist. The service member then proceeds to each station. MEDPROS is again checked at each station. The stations are Laboratory, Immunizations, Dental, Vision Screening, and Audiology. When all stations are complete, the service member is seen by a HCP who reviews all the data and discusses any health concerns with the service member. If a health issue is identified that requires further evaluation, the service member is seen in Case Management where a file is opened and appointments are made with the appropriate clinic.
3. Demobilization. The process begins with a series of briefings which include administrative, medical and entitlement briefs. Currently, a Post Deployment Health Assessment (DA 2796) is completed by the service member prior to leaving theater. The completed DA 2796 is reviewed with the service member by the HCP who notes any changes to the DA 2796. MEDPROS is checked and the Contractor notes any deficiencies on the SRP checklist. The service member then proceeds thru the following stations: Laboratory, Immunizations, Vision screening and Audiology. When all stations are complete, the service member is seen by a provider who reviews the DA 2796 and discusses any health concerns that the service member may have. If health issues are identified, a consult is placed and the service member is seen by a Case Manager who opens a file and schedules an appointment with the appropriate clinic.
4. Other Soldier Readiness Processing (SRP) Services. Other services conducted by the SRP Contractors may include but are not limited to Post Deployment Health Reassessments, Periodic Health Assessments, Welcome Center Soldier Assessments, and Active Component Readiness Assessments.
