Abstract : Army medical treatment facilities (MTF's) need a functional, understandable clinical administration program. Access to health care providers, and potentially the delivery of quality health care, can be degraded without a viable program. A clinical administrative structure must be implemented that fulfills the expectations of the staff and ultimately meets the needs of the beneficiary community. The need for clinical administration in Army MTF's has always existed. Multiple structures for clinical administration programs have been designed over time, changing primarily to meet current trends in the health care system. At Martin Army Community Hospital, different approaches to clinical administration have been implemented, and currently, service line management (SLM) is the structure utilized.
