Abstract:

The study includes a review of current civilian and military literature delving into the aspects of managed care in todays healthcare arena to gain an understanding of the nature of managed care. The information on managed care activities at selected USAF and other DoD MTFs was collected through telephone interviews. All of the MTFs interviewed were actively involved with managed care operations through participation in a national managed care demonstration like the CHAMPUS Reform Initiative CRI, the Catchment Area Management Project CAM, or the Southeast Preferred Provider Project or these facilities were conducting a managed care activity through their own planning and resources. The conclusion is that the hospitals actively involved in managed care activities are able to document healthcare delivery cost control efficiencies.
