Abstract:

The purpose of the Wards Subsystem manual condition-action flowcharts is to offer a graphic representation of the major processes which make up a ward system. Detail is of such a nature as to identify all ward operations but not the minute details of each operation so that what the physician actually does in the way of treatment for each patient, or how the medical records technician actually updates specific forms, is beyond the scope of these charts. The processes charted herein represent methods being employed in an impatient ward modeling environment. As such, they are not necessarily indicative of general practices currently in use in any single military hospital. The modeling effort represents an attempt not only to update the general efficiency and quality of inpatient health care delivery, but also to try to parallel the operating conditions expected in the new Walter Reed facility.
