Abstract:

This study was initiated to identify the transition plan requirements, from a user perspective, for moving from the existing hospital into the new medical facility at Madigan Army Medical Center. The benefits derived from the development of a working transition plan are twofold. First, a transition plan provides a framework by which to view and evaluate, on a broad scale, the transition process, and provides a structure by which transition requirements and implementation strategies can be achieved more effectively. Secondly,for those involved in the transition process, the transition planning process can serve as a focus for discussion, building consensus, altering organizational behaviors, and translating the transition effort into action. Discussion centered on how to implement such a plan and the major transition areas requiring extensive development.
