COMMANDANT INSTRUCTION 6010.18A
Use of Clinic Automated Management System (CLAMS) data collection
forms; Status-Profile, CG-5460A, and Visit Profile, CG-5460B
PURPOSE. This Instruction provides additional information concerning the use of the Clinic
Automated Management System, establishes the patient check in forms, Status-Profile, CG-
5460A and Visit Profile, CG-5460B, and provides updated instructions for using the forms.
DIRECTIVES AFFECTED. Commandant Instruction 6010.18 is canceled. The contents of
this Instruction will be incorporated into a future change to COMDTINST 6000.1 (series),
DISCUSSION. The new Clinic Automated Management System software is being installed at
Coast Guard clinics and sickbays. Use of the software is explained in the CLAMS Users
Guide. This Instruction covers form use and availability only. Coast Guard health care
facilities shall use either the Visit Profile or Status-Profile form, as appropriate, to perform
patient check in, collect patient identification information, and to compile outpatient visit
statistical data for each visit. Enclosure (1) contains specific instructions for completing the
forms and guidelines for their use.
The Status-Profile form can be used for any visit by either an active duty member or
civilian employee. It must be used for their first time visits, and for visits when a duty
status slip may be required.
The Visit Profile form must be used by all dependents and retirees. It can be used by
active duty and civilian employees who have previously been entered into the database
and will not need a duty status chit. If a Visit Profile sheet is started on a patient who later
turns out to need a duty status, discard the Visit Profile and start over on a Status-Profile
(which has a duty status chit included).
