The Periodic Health Assessment (PHA) is a screening tool used by the United States Armed Forces to evaluate the individual medical readiness (IMR) of their Service members. It can be conducted alone or can be combined with other IMR needs (e.g., dental exam and immunizations). Completed annually, the PHA consists of the following components for the Service member:

  • An overall assessment of current health and IMR deficiencies
  • Identification of potential risk factors that could lead to decreased health
  • Identification and recommendation of plan to minimize potential health risks
  • Recommendations for treatment of current health problems
  • Update of Service members’ medical readiness through completion of services and update of medical records
