Defense Health Agency

"On October 1, 2013, the Department of Defense established the Defense Health Agency (DHA) to manage the activities of the Military Health System. These activities include those previously managed by TRICARE Management Activity (TMA), which was disestablished on the same date. During the next several months, all TMA websites will change to reflect the new DHA. We appreciate your patience during this transition."

Training & Awareness

Developing and managing the delivery of specialized, role-based Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) Compliance and Privacy Act training for all Military Health System (MHS) personnel is a key part of the Defense Health Agency Privacy and Civil Liberties Office (Privacy Office) training and awareness program.

In addition, the Privacy Office provides training on privacy and HIPAA security related topics including Records Management, Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), Privacy Impact Assessments (PIAs), and Data Sharing Agreements (DSAs).

These efforts are augmented by promoting a culture of compliance through privacy and HIPAA security awareness, education, and outreach activities, including orientation sessions, seminars, and conferences.
