Transcripts - NAF Misawa Individual Medical Readiness Status
To all NAF and tenant command active duty personnel:<br />Since February 2010, your individual medical readiness (IMR) status has been available for viewing conveniently via BUPERS Online (BOL). This option can be found under the same application list which lists your orders, FITREPS, personnel data card, etc.<br />As maintaining accurate IMR status through the Medical Readiness Reporting System (MRRS) is a high priority not only for deploying but any shore based command, Navy Medicine Misawa is requesting your assistance with maintaining your own individual medical readiness.<br />With this option on BOL, you can review your PHA’s, laboratory results, dental readiness, and any medical conditions that may prohibit or limit deployment and post-deployment health assessments. It also shows when immunizations should be administered and when upcoming assessments should be completed.<br />A Sailor's overall IMR status is assessed into one of four categories: fully medically ready, partially medically ready, not medically ready and medical readiness indeterminate. A fully ready status means the Sailor is current in all medical categories and is not considered at risk to experience a dental emergency, thus deployable worldwide. A partially ready status means the Sailor lacks one or more immunization, laboratory results or medical equipment such as a gas mask insert. These limitations can be quickly resolved and allow the member to deploy once corrected. Not medically ready means the Sailor has a chronic or prolonged deployment-limiting condition and cannot deploy. This status includes Sailors who are hospitalized or convalescing from serious illness or injury, or they fall into a dental class three – considered to be at an increased risk to experience a dental emergency. The last category, medical readiness indeterminate, applies to Sailors whose health status cannot be determined because of missing information such as lost medical records or an overdue assessment.<br />Please verify your IMR status on at least a monthly basis and contact Navy Medical for any questions, or to discuss any discrepancies between MRRS and your medical record.<br />Thank you for your assistance!<br />Navy Medicine Misawa<br />
