DOD Releases Military Health System Review
 
The Pentagon released a 200-page Military Health System Review that Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel had ordered in response to the access to care crisis at the Department of Veterans Affairs. The Military Health System encompasses 56 hospitals, 361 medical clinics and 249 dental clinics that serve a worldwide patient population of 9.6 million beneficiaries. Seventeen multiservice Military Treatment Facilities were selected for the review, which "found pockets of excellence — significant excellence we are very proud of,” said Hagel at a Pentagon briefing on Wednesday. Regarding surgical morbidity, or complication rates, three MTFs stood out in the top tier nationally: Travis AFB, Calif., Fort Gordon, Ga., and Tripler Army Medical Center in Hawaii. But the secretary also said the report "found gaps and facilities that must improve,” which in the surgical morbidity category included eight of the 17 MTFs surveyed. Wrote one outside consultant, "Overall [Military Health System] performance mirrors what we see in the private sector, a good deal of mediocrity, pockets of excellence, and some serious gaps.” Said Hagel, "We can do better.” Read the report at http://www.defense.gov/home/features/2014/0614_healthreview/.
