Abstract:

Over the last three to four years, the Military Health Service System MHSS has been testing the waters of the managed care environment both through legislatively directed demonstration projects and internal initiatives. Experience with the transition into this civilianized form of healthcare practice has revealed that many of the skills necessary for survival in the civilian marketplace are skills which military healthcare administrators have had little opportunity to develop. The author has surveyed each of the Catchment Area Management CAM demonstration project and extracted lessons learned, synthesizing them into skill sets necessary for survival in the realm of coordinated care. The insights obtained through review of these lessons learned may prove quite useful for those about to begin the transition to the managed care environment.
