DCAM, "DMLSS Customer Assistance Module", is the designated choice for external units to use to order medical supplies. This is a client based program that retains catalog and order data on the customer's PC. Orders can be created "offline" and then go online to send orders and receive status and an updated catalog (using HTTPS secure file transfer protocal on port 443).

    FUNCTION: Logistics Division equips, maintains, and supplies the healthcare facility. Logistics Division has 3 branches: Materiel Management Branch, Equipment Management Branch, and Facility Management Branch. Logistics Division also operates an optical shop which fabricates various types of eyewear for military personnel and Medical Health Services (MHS) beneficiaries. Logistics Division performs vital functions which support direct patient care, and the medical readiness of military units.

    SUPPLIES.   Materiel Management Branch provides supplies (medical and non-medical), and Hospital Linen. . Supplies are expendable items that are consumed in use. Materiel Branch employees provide acquisition services for all classes of supply in addition to facilitating standardization for the medical staff. They buy the supplies, linen, and services needed to run the hospital. They provide receipt processing, warehousing and storage, quality control, inventory support, cart exchange, and delivery services for medical and nonmedical supplies. They manage the Hazardous Waste and Silver/Gold Recovery Program, linen support, the laundry contract, medical gases, and expendable office supplies. They provide emergency requirements for 80 internal RACH customers and 20 MEDCOM customers outside RACH. They also provide customer assistance to the patients and to RACH and DoD customer activities.

         IMSA.   Materiel Management Branch is the Installation Medical Supply Activity (IMSA) for Fort Sill, Oklahoma. The IMSA employees manage the Medical Stock Fund for the Installation Commander, and provide medical supplies for 54 activities stationed at Fort Sill, Oklahoma, and for 94 DoD activities throughout a 4 state region. The 4 state region includes New Mexico, Oklahoma, Arkansas, and North Texas.

    PROPERTY.   Equipment Management Branch provides property and equipment. These are non-expendable medical and non-medical items. Equipment Management Branch is responsible for accounting for current equipment, and forecasting future equipment requirements.

    MEDICAL MAINTENANCE.   Equipment Management Branch is responsible for maintenance and repair needs of MEDDAC customers. They maintain and repair medical equipment owned by the hospital.

    FACILITIES.   Facilities Management Branch maintains buildings and grounds. They maintain the hospital building and its working parts, including structure, plumbing, and electrical components.

    OPTICAL.   The Optical Fabrication Lab provides prescription eyeglasses for Army active duty personnel, National Guard, Reserve and retirees. They give trainees prescription glasses in 1 day. It used to take 2 weeks before we had the Lab. This improves the Basic and AIT Students training program by 12 days.
