Abstract : The intent of this study was to develop and apply a model for analyzing health care provider productivity in the Internal Medicine Outpatient Clinic at General Leonard Wood Army Community Hospital. The delivery of health care today is subject to significant financial constraints. As Rex Conn and associates note, identification of the actual costs associated with providing medical services has become increasingly important in order to prudently allocate available resources, with the ultimate cost savings occurring when a service is simply made unavailable. Enhanced resource utilization can be experienced by gaining knowledge of the productivity levels of health care services being provided in a Medical Treatment Facility and making management decisions accordingly.
