Abstract: The need for a resource planning model for community hospitals was recognized at the outset of the research. Community hospitals conduct several programs, namely preventive and promotive health services, patient care services, education in health professions and occupations, health science and health care research, other public services, and general administration. One program—patient care services—was selected for investigation. Patient treatment is a production process having inputs, outputs, and processes which transform inputs into outputs. Consequently, the problem of this research is defined as: 1. Definition of the community hospital's treatment system. 2. Identification of the inputs, outputs, and the important variables and relationships which constitute the treatment process of the treatment system.

Primary supportive care includes: 1. Application of diagnostic and therapeutic procedures. 2. Preparation, dispensing, and administering medications. 3. Accomplishment of preparatory procedures. 4. Monitoring and assessment of patient condition. 5. Communication with patient and care team. 6. Recording of patient care data. Secondary supportive care includes: 1. Admission and discharge processing. 2. Assistance in patient hygiene and nutrition. 3. Promotion of patient comfort. 4. Provision of emotional support to the patient. 5. Transportation of patient and patient-related items. The patient as a sub-process of the treatment system is also considered. The patient provides the major interties between the two sub-processes , provision of essential medical services and of supplemental care. Inputs to patient treatment seem to be constrained markedly by the output goals of patient care and by the production processes utilized to treat patients. Various types of input resources are discussed and classified. A special input, feedback, is also considered. Feedback information, resulting from comparison of care and paramedical services, and secondary supportive care, provision of optional services by care Learn members.
