Abstract:

The Tidewater area of Virginia is the site of the first Department of Defense DoD tri-service Coordinated Care Program. The three Military Treatment Facility Commanders MTF, with the Navy as Executive Agent, are vested with the authority to develop a coordinated care program to meet the needs of the beneficiary population who number in excess of 380,000. An analysis of the information gathered during TRICARE-Tidewaters conceptual phase and a portion of its planning phase can serve as a useful tool for MTF managers faced with implementing coordinated care. The review and analysis was limited to documentation produced from the initial conceptual phase between the three MTF Commanders and the Assistant Secretary of Defense for Health Affairs OASD-HA through 3l December 1991. This case study analyzes in qualitative terms issues such as organizational performanceeffectiveness, communication between the three services, and leadership.
