Abstract : The survey was conducted in a 175 bed United States Air Force medical treatment facility located in eastcentral Illinois and was concerned with a review and recommendations on the following subjects: appointment system, clinic session, statistical data, record procedures, physical facilities and interrelations (hospital departments and outside health related agencies). The techniques used were interview, observation, review of documentary material and statistical data. A review of the existing situation was made, and documented, and related to documentary materials and statistical data. Problem areas identified were insufficient space, lack of training program for the appointment clerk, inadequate health education and public relations program, insufficient statistical data and lack of formalized written procedures for clinic operation. Following problem identification, recommendations were presented as to possible solutions, or the area in which further study should be conducted. (Author)
