DoD Healthcare Feedback Deadline Extended

Falls Church, Va ??” Wounded, ill or injured service members and their families now have until November 28, 2008, to help Military Health System (MHS) leadership better understand the needs and expectations of warriors in their care. The deadline for participating in the MHS questionnaires has been extended due to overwhelming response.

The questionnaires??”one for wounded, ill or injured service members and one for family members??”are available on the Military Health System Web site at http://www.health.mil and will remain open through November. November has been designated as Warrior Care Month.

The questionnaires ask for feedback concerning a service member??”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 the MHS handles care for wounded, ill or injured service members.

The questionnaires are part of Defense Secretary Robert Gates??” commitment to supporting wounded, ill and injured service members??”ensuring that their care is the Department of Defense??”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 service members and their families, the MHS will be in a better position to meet their needs and expectations. The online questionnaires are available directly at http://www.health.mil/Pages/Page.aspx?ID=18.
