Recruit Assessment Program

History of Systems at Great Lakes:

  • Recruit health questionnaire (SHIP) since 1995

  • Most comprehensive medical in-processing in DoD


Slide3 l.jpg

Recruit Assessment Program

History of Systems at Great Lakes:

  • SHIP-Sailors Health Inventory Program

    • 193 questions

    • Responses used for input to other systems

    • Medical condition and allergy screening

    • Data sent to Naval Health Research Center

    • “Bubble Sheet” paper based

    • RAP questions initially based on SHIP

RAP Technical Evaluation in 2001 Included:

  • Hardware

  • Software

  • Database Connectivity

  • Integration Issues

  • Operational Issues


Slide5 l.jpg

Recruit Assessment Program

Hardware

  • Basically off the shelf desktop computers

  • High speed Kodak and Fujitsu scanners

  • High speed SCSI connectors


Slide6 l.jpg

Recruit Assessment Program

Software:

  • Cardiff Teleform Elite Version 7

    • Design

    • Recognition

    • Verification

  • Windows NT Operating System

  • Access

  • SQL Server


Slide7 l.jpg

Recruit Assessment Program

Database Connectivity

  • Tested with Access and SQL Server

  • Overall good connectivity


Slide8 l.jpg

Recruit Assessment Program

Integration Issues

  • Software and Hardware tested compatible with common systems

  • Database connectivity allows integration of data in many formats


Slide9 l.jpg

Recruit Assessment Program

Operational Issues

  • Similar to SHIP process

  • Slower than SHIP

    • Up to 6 hours to process 2 divisions of 100

    • SHIP takes 3 to 4 hours processing

    • Data quality in return

  • Requires fairly extensive training


Slide10 l.jpg

Recruit Assessment Program

Analysis

  • Technology viable

  • Not suited to long questionnaires

  • No ROI for Great Lakes process


Slide11 l.jpg

Recruit Assessment Program

RAP Questionnaire

  • Since similar to SHIP, easily adopted

  • Great Lakes is eager to share common baseline across DoD


Slide12 l.jpg

Recruit Assessment Program

Critical Issues

  • Time away from training

  • Flexibility to allow collection of local or service specific information

  • Integration and avoidance of “stovepipe”

  • Use of best technology


Slide13 l.jpg

Recruit Assessment Program

Great Lakes Palm Initiative

  • Currently testing use of Palm Pilot for Questionnaire Administration

  • Processing time reduced to minutes versus hours

  • Great promise-expect local implementation


Slide14 l.jpg

Recruit Assessment Program

Conclusions

  • Questionnaire content acceptable

  • Continued use of paper scanning not an acceptable technology for Great Lakes

  • An isolated application would adversely affect acceptability

  • Recommend that RAP be a set of data requirements to report, but decision on how to implement be left up to individual sites
