Abstract : This report presents an evaluation of the TRIPAD system at Keesler AFB. The evaluation focuses on the system objectives which were established as part of the system development process. The results were based on data collected before and after the system was installed at the site. The data collected were used to estimate savings in time or cost of completing various activities and the savings were then compared to those stated in the system objectives. The TRIPAD system supports the patient registration, admission, disposition, and transfer functions at the MTF. It also prepares patient bills and automatically generates several reports which were previously produced manually.
