Abstract:

Effective management of todays comprehensive and complex health care systems requires an integrated and future-looking approach, if these systems are to survive in todays turbulent political and economic climate. It is obvious that decisions must be made regarding the long-term health care planning strategy for Dewitt Army Community Hospital DACH, as well as the local and regional systems that support it. Because the Department of Defense does not currently have a viable long-term planning strategy for military health care in the National Capitol Region NCR, decisions at the regional level are difficult. The purpose of this project is three-fold. The first is to provide senior leaders with a single document that provides an overview of the current situation facing DACH, as it relates to the region, NCR and the Walter Reed Health Care System. The second purpose of this study is to offer several alternative scenarios outlining the best courses of action for the future health care planning of DACH. Finally, this report will make recommendations to senior leaders regarding the best possible options based on an economic analysis, current health care policy and health care facility renovation and replacement trends.
