The $5M Sleep Study Solution
We developed the Sleep Study Referral Tool to improve the sleep study referral process at Naval Medical Center Portsmouth (NMCP). Since implementation, referrals are more selective, positive diagnoses increased from 30% to 60%, and the percentage of active duty Sailors and Marines receiving direct care rose from 50% to 100% all at $400K monthly cost reduction at NMCP alone.
Geographic Information Systems Analysis of U.S. Fleet Forces Emergency Department Use
We used geographic information systems (GIS) to analyze Operational Forces emergency department (ED) use in Hampton Roads, VA. We found that distance matters. Personnel living more than 8 miles from Naval Medical Center Portsmouth were more likely to use purchased care despite 60% of ED visits being non-emergent.
Drug Demand Reduction Report, 2014
We examined commonly abused prescription drugs, prescribing practices, and usage patterns for Navy and Marine Corps active duty and reserve active personnel. We dug through two million records of data spanning 2009-2013 and analyzed eight classes of commonly abused medications to support the continual evaluation and improvement of the Drug Demand Reduction Program.
PARFQ: The $20 Million Difference
We evaluated the Navy's Physical Activity Risk Factor Questionnaire and discovered that it triggered 220,000 medical visits at a cost of roughly $32 million per year. The cost includes doctor visits, clinical procedures, and time away from work. We recommended replacing the existing PARFQ with one designed to triage Sailors based on risk factors. This approach would save the Navy $20 million while incurring no additional risk.
