Technology Assessment & Requirements Analysis (TARA) Program
- Technology Assessment and Requirements Analysis (TARA) team:
The TARA team currently assesses virtually all investment medical equipment and clinical operations within the USAMEDCOM’s brick and mortar (TDA) medical treatment facilities (MTFs). The purpose of each site visit is to interview departmental staff, observe scheduling and patient-flow patterns, evaluate quality of service, evaluate the condition and utilization of existing equipment, provide a 5-year strategic replacement plan for equipment, recommend improvements in operations, facilities, staffing, workflow, and to discuss clinical operations. Clinical assessment is performed by the Office of The Surgeon General (OTSG) Consultants. Evaluations are performed at approximately 8 to 10 facilities a year.
