g. MTF Commander. The MTF Commander "owns" and is responsible for the
quality of data within the facility. The MTF Commander will monitor data quality metrics
and establish an environment that recognizes the importance of data quality and
encourages Total Data Quality Management (TDQM). The Commander will appoint an
individual responsible for patient administration data quality, as well as an individual
responsible for clinical services data quality, among other data administrator categories.
MTF Commanders will submit his or her respective biometrics agency workload
information on a monthly basis no later than the fifth day of the month. The MTF
Commander uses the information for planning, programming, budgeting, and execution for
the MHS within the MTF catchment area.
ACTIVITIES THAT PREPARE THE WWR
a. WWR Preparing Activities. Each functioning Service MTF worldwide prepares
the WWR for each report period. Preparing activities include each operating Service
hospital, health clinic, dispensary, and other functioning MTFs using Defense Health
Program (DHP) funds. When nonfixed MTFs deploy and begin functioning, they also
comply with these instructions.
b. Army Activities.
(1) Troop medical clinics. Special rules exist when a table of organization and
equipment (TOE) unit staffs a TMC for a table of distribution and allowances (TDA)
Medical Department Activity/Medical Center (MEDDAC/MEDCEN) MTF using DHP funds.
The workload accomplished will be reported on the TMC WWR and will be consolidated
with the MEDCEN/MEDDAC TDA consolidated WWR. This reporting is generally
accomplished through day-to-day entry in the CHCS.
(2) On garrison medical care. On garrison, a TMC is the lowest level
authorized to provide and report primary medical care. Therefore, a TOE aid station on
garrison will submit its workload to the appropriate TMC. Workload accomplished in a
TOE aid station will not be reported as TMC workload. It will be retained locally for local
reporting and demand management.
(3) Off garrison TOE units. TOE units operating off garrison in a geographical
location outside of the MEDCEN/MEDDAC area of responsibility, using TOE funds, will
have their workload included in the TOE consolidated WWR. (See Figure 1-2.) TOE MTF
off garrison and in command of subordinate MTF will submit a consolidated report to
include all care provided by all subordinate units.
