Abstract:

Evans U.S. Army Community Hospital EACH, Fort Carson, Colorado, was chosen as one of two Army hospitals for the Catchment Area Management Demonstration Project CAM. CAM gives the Commander control of both the Operation and Maintenance, Army OMA and the Civilian Health and Medical Program of the Uniformed Services CHAMPUS budgets. The first initiative the Commander, considered as a result of this new control was to capture the Obstetrical Services OB in the EACH catchment area. This study determined that a savings of 1,345,140.72 would have been realized if 77 additional deliveries had been performed at EACH in FY88.
