About PPMD

BRAC Program Integration Office (PIO)

The BRAC recommendations for the Military Health System (MHS) were approved in 2005 with the specific goals of promoting efficiency and joint-interoperability. These initiatives will drive a historic and necessary transformation of DoD clinical care, medical education and training, and biomedical research and development (R&D) capabilities. The clinical portions of BRAC will reorganize two of the largest military medical markets (National Capital Region and San Antonio) into jointly staffed and managed healthcare systems and will downsize several small hospitals to clinics. Other medical BRAC actions will consolidate DoD-wide basic medical enlisted training in San Antonio and consolidate the fragmented biomedical R&D technical base into centers of excellence. 

Starting in Fiscal Year 2008, the Assistant Secretary of Defense for Health Affairs (ASD(HA)), TRICARE Management Activity (TMA) assumed oversight and funding responsibilities for the clinical portions of several BRAC recommendations. The Clinical BRAC program is a segment of medical BRAC that focuses on BRAC actions, or portions thereof, that deal with facilities and organization which provide direct hands-on patient care, as opposed to those which provide medical research or medical training. This includes parts of Commission Recommendations 169 Realign Walter Reed Army Medical Center; 171 McChord Air Force Base, WA; 172 San Antonio Regional Medical Center, TX; and 173 Convert Inpatient Services to Clinics.
