business case analysis and va dod sharing
Business Case Analysis and VA/DoD Sharing
  • Purpose

“The Secretary of Veterans Affairs and the Secretary of Defense shall enter into agreements for the mutually beneficial coordination, use, or exchange of use of the health care resources of VA and DoD. The goal is to improve the access, quality, and cost effectiveness of the health care provided by the Veterans Health Administration and the Military Health System to the beneficiaries of both Departments.”


opportunities for va dod sharing
Opportunities for VA-DoD Sharing
  • Purchased Care/Non-VA Care Recapture
  • Combining or Complementary Services to GME
  • Combining Other VA and DoD Services in one location – economies of scale
  • Joint training sessions – reduced training costs; increased training opportunities (non-GME)
  • Increased patient mix and complexity – enhanced clinical currency
methods for identifying sharing opportunities
Methods for Identifying Sharing Opportunities
  • Key: Routine Meetings of Local Leadership and Work Group (s)
  • Data Mining for Potential Projects
    • Enrollment
    • Staffing
    • Direct Care
    • Purchased Care
  • Business Case Analysis
  • Project Proposals
elements of successful joint incentive fund projects
Elements of Successful Joint Incentive Fund Projects
  • Leadership Driven Process
    • VA/DoD Governance
    • Vision and Local Focus are a Critical Component
    • Jointly Defining Value of Services
  • Clinical Champion
    • GME Support
    • Input on clinical capabilities and availability
  • Data and Analysis - Defining Factor of Success
  • Must Meet JIF Criteria for Success (Quantitative and Qualitative; i.e. Self-Sustainingwithin Two-Years, Support GME )
evaluation of projects joint incentive fund
Evaluation of Projects - Joint Incentive Fund
  • The Financial Management Workgroup meets to evaluate and score each proposal using the following criteria:
    • Improves Quality of Care & Access to Care
    • Mission Priority / Corporate Direction
    • Return on Investment
    • Measurable Performance Data Identified
    • Supports VA/DoD Joint Strategic Plan
    • Other Intangible Benefits
    • Size & Scope of Impact

bca standardized dod and va data
BCA Standardized DoD and VA Data
  • Historical: Locally Applied/Bottom Up Approach
  • Future: Top Down/Market Based Perspective
    • Reports Produced Nationally
    • Analysis Done Locally
  • Development of Tools for Standardizing DoD and VA Data
    • AF/VA Datamart and Expansion to Army/Navy
    • Product/Service Line Crosswalk Maps VA Care Codes to MEPRS
    • Downloads to Microsoft Excel for Pivot Tables Relatively Easy to Manipulate and Present Relevant Cost, Supply and Demand Data; Require Analysis for Use by Leadership Decision Making
lessons learned jif projects
Lessons Learned – JIF Projects
  • Gain Leadership’s Approval Early
    • Intermediate Service Commands
    • VISNs
  • Difficulty recruiting in the following areas:
    • Rural markets
    • Part-time staff
    • MRI Technicians (GS versus Contract)
    • Hiring versus Contracting for Radiology
  • Realistic Cost Estimating
    • Salaries (Determine most appropriate: GS or Contract
    • Equipment
    • Minor Construction (i.e. MRIs, etc.)
lessons learned jif projects cont
Lessons Learned – JIF Projects (Cont.)
  • One Initiative Per Proposal (Support with Data)
  • IM/IT
    • Must be Congruent with Corporate Direction
    • Cannot Duplicate Existing Systems (Stovepipe)
    • Factor in long lead times for contract support
  • Project Funding
    • For JIF Projects, plan early for funding after two-year funds expended
