Army medical records system gets new manager

The Army's Medical Communications for Combat Casualty Care – better known as MC4 – has a new leader.

Lt. Col. William Geesey relinquished his role as product manager for the MC4’ s Product Management Office to Lt. Col. Danny Morton during a change of charter ceremony at Fort Detrick, Md.

Geesey leaves MC4 as the longest-tenured product manager for MC4 since its inception in 1999. Among his many accomplishments leading the center, Geesey spearheaded a telehealth initiative that digitally connects remote soldiers with mental-health specialists, for which he earned a place among the Federal 100 winners of 2012.

Geesey will stay with the Army, but details of his next assignment haven't been released yet.

Morton, who previously served as chief of staff at the U.S. Army Medical Materiel Agency, plans to expand use and engagement with MC4 systems, enhance user training and readiness, and continue focus on system quality and capabilities to benefit deployed soldiers worldwide.
