Abstract
The Air Force Surgeon General has established the Office for Prevention and Health Care Assessment (OPHSA) to become the center of excellence for preventive services and health care assessment in the U. S. Air Force and the Department of Defense. OPHSA using the principles of total quality management and integrated teams will evaluate, compare, and modify preventive services delivery guidelines to preserve the fighting force by preventing illness and injuries in military populations. OPHSA will evaluate and formulate health care-delivery guidelines to improve health care access and delivery to military patient populations. OPHSA will develop data to determine the health status and health needs of beneficiary populations so medical managers can delivery medical care in the most cost effective manner. OPHSA is located at Brooks Air Force Base in San Antonio, Texas. OPHSA will have thirty seven active duty military, civil service, and contract employees and should be fully functional by the end of 1995.
