Abstract : In 1977, Health Services Command published Ambulatory Patient Care (APC) Model 18, Clinical Support Division. It suggested grouping all administrative elements which support direct patient care services under a single manager. It further proposed that, to maximize effectiveness, there should be a centralized system of management supervision to provide uniform guidance for all administrative personnel. The purpose of the model was to assist the hospital in establishing an improved administrative management system that would increase physicians' time available for direct patient care. The U.S. Army Medical Department Activity (MEDDAC) Fort Ord has a Clinical Support Division. The current organization of the CSD does not comply with the proposals contained in APC Model 18.
