The MIT PTSI team is using social science methodologies and strategic analysis of organizations to examine the continuum of care for service members and their families affected by post-traumatic stress. The project focuses on organizational policies, structures, processes, technology, information and resource flows, and stakeholder relationships. The three-year grant cooperative agreement (Oct. 2011-Jan. 2015) is sponsored by the U.S. Army Medical Research and Materiel Command in cooperation with the leadership of the Military Health System and extends across the leadership and populations of the Army, Navy, and Marines.

The project has four specific goals:

  • Develop models of the current Military Psychological Health (PH) enterprise to capture value creation and delivery to key stakeholders
  • Determine the levers of change in the PH enterprise
  • Create future enterprise designs to meet the quadruple aim of readiness, per capita cost, experience of care, and population health
  • Prioritize and guide actions to achieve the desired future enterprise
