Abstract:

The Armys ACDB Study collected information on more than 3.1 million patient visits during a 21-month period more than 4,000 providers were involved at six medical treatment facilities. During the data collection period, various study team members collected anecdotal information from a number of participating providers. Unfortunately, this information was never consolidated and validated. To overcome this deficiency and to provide study participants the health care providers with the opportunity to provide input or to evaluate the ACDB study, the ACDB Provider Survey was developed. The Provider Survey collected information from nearly 500 health care providers and has provided the Army Medical Department with valuable insight on many aspects of the ACDB Study. However, the most important aspect may be in the knowledge that the data contained in the bubble forms not only are valid but also are an accurate representation of the care provided in the outpatient clinics.
