Deadline extended for health system questionnaire

FALLS CHURCH, Va. -- The deadline for participating in the Military Health System questionnaires has been extended due to overwhelming response. Wounded, ill or injured servicemembers and their families now have until Nov. 28 to help MHS leaders better understand the needs and expectations of warriors in their care.

The questionnaires, one for wounded, ill or injured service members and one for family members, are available on the Military Health System Web site and will remain open through November. November has been designated as Warrior Care Month.

The questionnaires ask for feedback concerning a servicemember's experience and satisfaction with the care he or she has received since becoming wounded, ill or injured.
All questionnaire responses are anonymous to encourage honest and specific answers that will lead to positive changes in how MHS officials handle care for wounded, ill or injured servicemembers.

The questionnaires are part of Defense Secretary Robert Gates' commitment to supporting wounded, ill and injured servicemembers, ensuring that their care is the department's top priority.

Care is continually improving but MHS leaders recognize that there is still more to be done. By listening to the opinions of wounded, ill or injured servicemembers and their families, MHS officials will be in a better position to meet their needs and expectations. The online questionnaires are available directly at www.health.mil/Pages/Page.aspx?ID=18.

The Military Health System is a unique partnership of medical educators, medical researchers and healthcare providers and their support personnel worldwide. This DOD enterprise consists of representatives from the office of the assistant secretary of defense for health affairs; the medical departments of the Army, Navy, Marine Corps, Air Force, Coast Guard, and Joint Chiefs of Staff; the combatant command surgeons; and Tricare providers, including private-sector healthcare providers, hospitals and pharmacies.
