Abstract : The passage of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 1987 (Public Law 99-661) mandated that funding of Department of Defense (DoD) Medical Treatment Facilities (MTF) would be based on a Diagnostic Related Group (DRG) resource allocation methodology. For senior managers to make effective decisions under such a system they need a Management Information System (MIS) which provides timely and relevant information. This study seeks that type of system. The Systems Approach methodology was used to design this MIS which augments the decision making capabilities of senior management as they begin to work in this new DRG-based budgeting environment.
