Abstract : The focus of this project is self-care management, particularly the Healthwise Handbook. The study will attempt to answer the question of how well and how often are health care beneficiaries at Madigan Army Medical Center using Healthwise Handbook to treat themselves instead of relying on the health care provider. A comparison study on the utilization of the Healthwise Handbook by Madigan's beneficiary population will be performed through reviewing outpatient appointments by the sample population in Madigan's Composite Healthcare System (CHCS) database and by surveying a similar sample population.
