Abstract : The purpose of this Standard is to ensure that the peacetime staffing requirements of the Military Health Services System (MHSS) provide quality medical care in a productive environment'. The Joint Healthcare Manpower Standards (JHMS) provide the Department of Defense and the MHSS with a uniform system for determining peacetime healthcare manpower requirements for operation of fixed military medical treatment facilities. The primary objectives of the JHMS are as follows: (1) Provide military healthcare management with a uniform process for determining requirements and applying military treatment facility staffing standards; (2) Provide guidance for determining demand on work centers and for ensuring appropriate performance levels, staffing sequences, and other workload factors are employed in satisfying workload; (3) Provide a means of identifying unique facility and system healthcare manpower requirements; (4) Provide actual and potential areas of interservice support of healthcare workload; and (5) Provide a method for forecasting healthcare manpower requirements based on mission and/or service population changes.
