The National Naval Medical Center (NNMC), Bethesda, Maryland, set as a strategic goal the improvement of internal efficiency among its many clinical activities. Clinical services lacked the ability to improve their statistical process, which relied on workload and expense data. Since the data systems had removed provider identifiers, it was impossible to produce data on provider productivity and efficiency. Numerous efforts to improve the clinical staff's efficiency were unsuccessful because of data integration limitations. Clinical service managers could not review their clinical service staff roster nor maintain the correct coding of personnel because they did not have access to the Standard Personnel Manpower System (SPMS). The step-wise approach business plan described in this thesis outlines the steps taken to generate productivity and efficiency feedback reports. These reports provided the clinical managers the necessary performance metrics to determine on a monthly basis how effectively their clinical services were operating.
