Abstract:

Since 1947 there have been numerous inquiries and studies concerning the consolidation of the Armed Forces Health Services into a single health service support system. This recommendation has met both opposition and support at various times from Congress, the Joint Chief of Staffs, the Military Departments and the Services Medical Departments. The Department of Defense is entering a new era and to meet the requirements being placed on it by the National Command Authority and the Congress, it must review, revise, and reorganize to accomplish its missions. This study is one alternative of how the Army Medical Department under the guidance and leadership of the Assistant Secretary of Defense for Health Affairs can accomplish those requirements.
