Abstract

With a downsized military and an aging beneficiary population, the Military Health System (MHS) is reinventing itself in an effort to optimize its resources and provide quality care. Their task is daunting: incorporate and value the cultures of the three military services healthcare systems, standardize and implement best clinical and business processes, and optimize the use of contract services to support military medical treatment facilities (MTFs).
