Abstract:

This report is a general overview of an introduction to the US Army Tri-Service Medical Information Systems Agency TRIMIS-Army effort to analyze and flowchart the manual information handling operations in military Medical Treatment Facilities MTF. In particular, Walter Reed Army Medical Center WRAMC, a large facility whose new hospital will have a capacity of 1,280 beds and approximately 200,000 outpatient visits per year, was chosen as the object of this effort. WRAMC was selected for analysis because, due to its size, it includes a superset of the capabilities of most MTFs, and is also the chosen prototype site for TRIMIS integrated computerized systems to be installed in the future. This introductory volume includes background material and overview of TRIMIS and the charting effort, introduction and interpretation guides to the charting methodology, as well as indexes to all the charted processes of each of the subsystems included in this series of reports.
