Abstract:

This project analyzed the application of current systems already established within the AMEDD and applied at Walter Reed Army Medical Center for the purpose of acquiring and replacing capital equipment, particularly patient furniture. The deficiencies of the systems which prevent comprehensive periodic identification of much of the patient furniture as being in need of replacement include lack of staff understanding on their role in the process and failure of the AMEDDPAS and Property Book systems to include much of this furniture in the monitoring function. The project proposed a comprehensive, total quality assurance model that would correct these deficiencies, provide more accurate identification of the total financial requirement of the hospital and support enhanced funding of capital equipment programs.
