Abstract : This paper was a working document to capture concepts and ideas as they were developed during the task of defining a vision for the Air Force Medical Service (AFMS) and its constituent Aerospace Medicine Enterprise (AME) 5-10 years into the future (?AME 2020)? A deliberative systems thinking approach was used to deconstruct the current non-expeditionary/ in-garrison healthcare environment and create a new one founded on systems principles. The basic ideas and concepts developed during this cycle of destruction and creation were foundational to the subsequent AFMS' Human Performance Concept of Operations (CONOPS) and its constituent description of the Air Force Medical Home.
