Abstract : The United States Army Health Services Command (HSC) has initiated its own program of coordinated care called the Gateway To Care Program. Moncrief Army Community Hospital at Fort Jackson, South Carolina, due to begin the Gateway program in fiscal year 1993, is interested in creating an internal organizational structure responsible to coordinate the delivery of cost- effective, quality health care to its Department of Defense beneficiaries from military, federal and civilian health care sources in its catchment area. Since this initiative represents a dramatic departure from past practices and procedures, the success of the program rests to a large extent on the design of the internal structure created to accomplish the designated tasks. A systems analysis was conducted to determine the optimal organizational design responsible for the coordination of the Gateway To Care program.
