Abstract : This project sought to determine the most cost efficient and clinically acceptable primary care staffing model for Moncrief Army Community Hospital. Manpower costs were compared using the following models: (1) Moncrief's FY93 average and current primary care staffing; (2) American Hospital Association's (AMA) projected staffing mix using a community demand analysis; (3) The Health Care Management Support Engineering Activity1s Full Time Requirement Utilization Model (FTRUM); (4) Gateway To Care (GTC) Manpower Staffing Assessment Model; and (5) Linear Goal Programming's QSB+ Staffing Model with a managed care family practice emphasis. Each model was compared by the number, mix, and costs associated with staffing Moncrief's Family Practice Plus (FPP) Clinic and the other primary care specialty clinics (Internal Medicine, Gynecology, and Pediatric). A qualitative observational study was also performed to see how closely actual performance of the nurse practitioner (NP) and family practice physicians in FPP met assumptions used in the staffing models.
