The MC4 handheld may be used as a point-of-care hand-held assistant, enabling medics to record, store, retrieve and transfer critical medical information on the frontlines. When synchronized with an MC4 laptop, the information transfers to a Soldier’s lifetime medical history. Providers around the world can access this data to assist in continuity of care and decision making. Users may also use the MC4 handheld to access medical reference tools and conduct post-deployment health assessments. The MC4 handheld is part of the AN/TYQ-105C(V)1 configuration.

An MC4 handheld enables medics a secure means for conveying legible medical information to the next level of care providers. It may also provide instant access to pre-loaded patient demographics and aids diagnostic and treatment decision-making.

Documenting care at the point of injury provides valuable information for a Soldier's continuity of care, as well as provides data that can be analyzed to improve body armor and medical treatment techniques.

The MC4 handheld contains digital versions of the DD 1380 (field medical card) and SF 600 (chronological medical record of care), as well as human body diagrams and forms that enable users to capture data using a stylus. The AHLTA-Mobile application displays medical history, physical exam and disposition in structured data terms, including ICD-9 codes associated with diagnoses. It also includes areas for free-text entry and provides access to medical reference libraries.

A medic can use an MC4 handheld loaded with AHLTA-Mobile to record initial patient encounter data and synchronize it with the AHLTA-T application, located on a laptop, to ensure point-of-care documentation becomes part of a Service member's lifelong medical history.
