PHAs (Camp Zama)

The Army will implement version 2 of the DOD Periodic Health Assessment (PHA) on 9 August, 2021. This update to the current version of the PHA includes several congressionally mandated screenings affecting Service Members (SMs) health status. Among the additional screenings are questions related to gambling disorder, and exposure to burn-pits or airborne chemicals/contaminants during deployments. The DoD PHA workflow also enables initiating an assessment in a SM’s assigned medical readiness system, and completion by providers from all Services in their designated readiness system.

Although the process for completing the assessment is unchanged, accessing the PHA via AKO is no longer available. Soldiers can start a PHA using the following procedure:

  1. Navigate to the MODS homepage at
  2. Select the “Medical Readiness Portal” from the menu. You will be prompted to select CAC a certificate. Note: A CAC required to access MODS applications.
  3. Follow the prompts to navigate to your Individual Medical Readiness (IMR) page in the Medical Readiness Portal.
    1. Agree to HIPAA Warning and,
    2. Agree to Privacy Act Warning & Statement, and MODS Privacy and Uses & Disclosure.
  4. From your “Home Portal” dashboard, select the “Periodic Health Assessment” link under the Self Service section.
  5. You will be directed to the PHA application to start a new survey.


IMPORTANT: Any PHA in the current version that is not completed prior to 30 Nov 2021, will be automatically archived, and the Soldier will be required to start a new assessment to complete the annual PHA requirement. Additionally, any incomplete PHA initiated prior to 01 May 2021 will be automatically archived on 09 Aug 2021, and the Soldier will be required to start a new assessment. Additional notifications will be posted to the medical readiness applications in MODS.
