1. With the release of the new 2012 Deployment Health Assessment forms, the SAT-I and II's are embedded in the Pre-/Post-DHA's and the PDHRA, but the PHA does not contain these embedded Behavioral Health screening questions.  Should the paper copies of the SAT-I and II's still be used to complete the PHA?

Clinical Readiness

1. With the release of the new 2012 Deployment Health Assessment forms, the SAT-I and II's are embedded in the Pre-/Post-DHA's and the PDHRA, but the PHA does not contain these embedded Behavioral Health screening questions.  Should the paper copies of the SAT-I and II's still be used to complete the PHA? 

Use of SATs with the PHA should be continued until the PHA is modified to incorporate the PHA SAT questions. While a SAT is not required with the revised DHAs, when a Soldier responds 'positive' to the PHQ-2 for depression or the Primary Care PTSD Screen (PC-PTSD), the provider is:
  - made aware of the positive responses
  - prompted to ask additional questions to determine the extent of the problem and given a
    field for input

  - 
required to indicate if a referral is indicated

5. How do I obtain a MEDPROS reports/read account?

Go to www.mods.army.mil, select MEDPROS, and click on the link "Obtain a MEDPROS Account".  Fill out the online registration, including include a good reason for the access, then hit submit.  E5 and below, and all civilians and contractors: you MUST have your supervisor (as named in the registration), email a statement approving your access, to mods-help@asmr.com.

6. Who is authorized to obtain a MODS data entry/write access?

Non-medical units located on or near an Army installation that have a medical treatment facility, generally do not require write access.  It is the responsibility of the MTF to ensure any medical readiness data is entered into MEDPROS within 72 hours of service.

To safeguard the integrity of the data and the MODS programs, we strongly encourage commanders to adhere to these rules of access:

1) Soldiers/civilians in a medical AOC/MOS with a need for write access.

2) Designated data entry clerks who are responsible for documentation at health clinics or Soldier readiness processing contractors.

3) S-1 or designated battalion/brigade medical readiness SME.

7. What do I need to do to obtain a MODS/MEDPROS write access?

Fill out and submit the below DD2875 and DD2929 registration forms to the MODS helpdesk. Both DD2875 and DD2929 must have the yellow highlighted boxes completed (ALL YELLOW BOXES), signed in the designated boxes, and forwarded to the MODS help desk at mods-help@asmr.com or fax (703)681-4983.

MODS Access Form 2875 SAAR

MODS ACCESS DD Form 2929

Other information for MODS QWS3270S Write Account requests:

1)  USAR and ARNG not on a mobilized/deployed tour, MUST have their "command approval authority" (USAR) or Deputy State Surgeon (ARNG) or the approved secondary, sign in box 13. A list of designated personnel is available at the MODS help desk, (703)681-4976. Any other signatures will not be accepted, unless in cases explained in (2) below.

2)  Mobilized/deployed USAR/ARNG can have the commander of the mobilized/deployed unit sign the request -- however, if the "command approval authority" is NOT the person signing, then the Soldier must indicate in the email or fax that they are mobilized on AD and/or deployed.

3)  Active Duty Army should have their commander or representative sign.

4)  Unit/command security manager MUST sign box 31.

5)  Email completed forms to mods-help@asmr.com or fax to (703)681-4983.  You should call the day after to ensure the forms were received and are acceptable (complete)....call (703)681-4976 or (888)849-4341.

6)  A write access account to the DOS mainframe QWS3270S MODS program will take about 10 business days.  Once you receive the account LogonID and temporary password by email, change the password. 

7)  We normally require formal training (you will receive a training certificate), or at a very minimum, validation by an experienced MODS/MWDE user that you have received deskside training.

MEDPROS Web Data Entry access is contingent upon a current MODS write account, and at the request of the Commander or designated approval authorities usually in the command surgeon's office.  Requests are forwarded by email to a MEDPROS Readiness Coordinator (MRC) with responsibility for your installation/AOR. To find a MRC, go to www.mods.army.mil, select MEDPROS, and then MEDPROS CONTACTS.
