The term "tactical medical coordination system" (TacMedCS) denotes any of several prototype electronic systems for tracking patients in a scenario that may involve multiple instances of treatment by different medical personnel in different locations.

The most advanced prototype has already been demonstrated to be effective in operations at a Navy fleet hospital.
