Abstract:

This thesis explores the Navy Health Care Strategic Planning Process NHCSPP and attempts to apply the Department of Defense Automated Information Systems AIS Documentation Standard DOD-STD-7935A to develop a draft a functional description for the automation of the NHCSPP as module of the Navy Medical Executive Information System. The thesis begins with a discussion of Wartime and Peacetime Health Care Planning. This is followed by an in depth evaluation of the Navy Health Care Strategic Planning Process. The Navy Medical Executive Information System is then discussed, followed by the Functional Description Overview. The research indicates that Navy Health Care Strategic Planning is an extremely complex and intricate process and as such, traditional methodologies that emphasize capturing and representing users requirements upfront, i.e. DOD-STD-7935A, are not appropriate for automating the planning process. Additionally, the health care planning process needs to be standardized across all branches of the armed services. It is further ended that Navy Medicine create a workgroup of end-users and functional experts to develop a more detail functional description.
