Unleashing Unlimited Potential: The Army Warrior Care and Transition Program in 2011

October 15, 2011

The past year has seen the Army’s Warrior Care and Transition Program (WCTP) continue to make great strides toward becoming the recognized leader in caring for wounded, ill and injured Soldiers and supporting the families of these brave warriors.

Charged with responsibility for establishing policy and providing oversight for the WCTP, the Warrior Transition Command has made impressive progress in automation, documentation and training programs for medical, rehabilitation, patient care, ministry and other professionals who work with each Soldier and family to put together a stepby-step, comprehensive plan for recovery and preparation for the future. This Comprehensive Transition Plan process is now fully automated and provides both Soldiers and staff with a vibrant and “living” plan tailored to each Soldier’s desires and expectations.

Also implemented over the past year is the Army Warrior Care Tracking System (AWCTS), which provided greatly improved capabilities to track each Soldier’s progress every step of the way. Designed to centralize and expand many of the automated management capabilities for Soldiers, the Comprehensive Transition Plans—as well as many of the other capabilities necessary to manage the care and support of nearly 10,000 Soldiers at any given time—will soon be part of the AWCTS system.
