DHA Launches New Websites for Air Force Military Hospital and Clinics
On Sept. 1, the Defense Health Agency (DHA) launched 74 new websites for Air Force military hospital and clinics. This is an important step to modernize the Military Health System on the web. Each website moved to the TRICARE website to give patients a standard web experience.
“Standardizing military hospital and clinic websites will help our patients across the Military Health System to access all of the information they need to manage their health care and their TRICARE benefit,” said U.S. Army Lt. Gen. Ronald Place, DHA director. “This change will make it easier for our service members, retirees, and families to find the information they need to navigate and access health care information. As our service members and families move across the country and around the world, having a standard website will be one less thing they will have to learn at their new location.”
The move to TRICARE.mil will give easier access to information about your local military hospital or clinic. It will provide TRICARE benefit information in one place. And it adds helpful features and new layouts to your web experience.
This effort was a collaboration with the Air Force. It will:
Upgrade the military’s online resources.
Improve the military hospital and clinic websites.
Rely on user input for future enhancements.
“Everyone will enjoy a universal experience and consistent information,” said Diana Logreira, DHA chief of Digital Communications. “Both about the TRICARE benefit and local military health services. This will be true no matter where you’re deployed or what service you belong to.”
The website move is part of the DHA administrative oversight of military hospitals and clinics. This is under the 2017 National Defense Authorization Act.
Improved Website Features
Using your local military hospital or clinic websites will be easier. Key features include:
Standard look and feel.
Ease of navigation.
Up-to-date health care information.
Local health services.
Central TRICARE information.
Easy to find data on quality, patient safety, and access.
Local Management with Central TRICARE Benefit Information
The new website design supports consistent information sharing across the Military Health System. But local military hospitals and clinics will still manage their own websites. This will keep you informed on issues specific to your facility.
