The DOD Deployment Health
Assessment program ensures that all Service members who were deployed for
more than 30 days boots on ground are monitored periodically for both
physical and mental health concerns.
The EpiData Center Department
(EDC) Application Development and Data System Support Division developed and
maintains the electronic Deployment Health Assessment (EDHA) system. Five
deployment health assessments are currently in use to monitor Service member
health throughout their deployment cycle and up to 3 years after they
return. EDC epidemiologists in the Behavioral and Operational Health
Division utilize the information within the assessments to monitor overall
compliance and completion, positive screens for physical and mental health
concerns, and provider referrals.
The assessments will become a
part of your official medical record and can be used to document previous
and deployment health issues. Documentation of any health concern is vital
to Deployment readiness and will exist as a legal record which can be
accessed later if applying for Disabilities through Veterans
The compliance timeframes for
each assessment are:
PDHRA and DMHA Compliance
2795 Pre-Deployment Health Assessment
To be completed no earlier than 120 days prior to start of
2796 Post Deployment Health Assessment
To be completed between 30 days before and 30 days after return

Two surveys to be completed between 181-545 days and 546-910

both the PDHRA and the DMHA are due.

is allowed only for Service members separating from the Navy or Marine

regardless of the number of days since return from deployment. After 910
days, the final DMHA is still required.
