Battlefield medics and army docs are professional colleagues who work on the same patients, but usually in a different space and time. Medics are often faced with wounded soldiers that need immediate attention that only a trained surgeon can help with. Moreover, once the surgeon finally gets his hands on the patient, knowing the background of the injury and the subsequent medical details can dramatically speed up initialization of proper care. Additionally, triaging multiple injuries in the field by deciding who gets the medevac first can be improved if doctors at the field hospital have a good sense of what the status of the wounded is.
