Abstract:

The Army medical system evaluates soldiers through the Physical Disability Evaluation System. This study examines two critical questions using Madigan Army Medical Center MAMC as a test site Where are the inefficiencies in the process, and how can MAMC approach the mission differently to reduce processing times Retrospective data, consisting of 200 Medical Evaluation Board MEB cases, provided the basis for examining the process. The researcher used stepwise linear regression analysis to determine relationships among variables and the overall process. Comparisons with the Air Force and Navy programs yielded suggestions for improving the program.
