Strategic Management System (SMS)
The SMS is a management tool used by Army leadership to track strategic goals using key performance metrics from all functional levels of the Army (medical and non-medical). Metrics are monitored with upper and lower thresholds shown as color indicators (e.g. green, amber, and red). As one of the Army Medicine Campaign metrics, quarterly injury rates and calculated statistical control limits are provided by installation, regional health command, and Army major command.
To get to the installation injury metrics in SMS, go to Dashboards; User Workspace; OTSG/MEDCOM; OTSG/MEDCOM HQ; DSC, Public Health; Public Health; Clinical Public Health and Epidemiology (CPHE); Active Duty Injuries by Installation, MEDCOM Region, and MACOM (Quarterly). https://www.sms.army.mil/cms (Restricted access, CAC required)
