The Deployment Health Clinical Center (DHCC) launched its Web site,, in May 2001 to assist busy clinicians in the delivery of post-deployment healthcare. It represents a comprehensive source of deployment-related health information for both healthcare providers and service members, veterans, and family members. In addition, it is the primary source of communication and support for the implementation of the DoD/VA Post-Deployment Health Clinical Practice Guideline (PDH-CPG). The Web site debuted immediately following the PDH-CPG worldwide satellite broadcast, which introduced the Guideline to all military treatment facilities.

The Web site contains information on all deployments and deployment support; specific diseases and emerging health concerns; provider and patient education materials; news and information, and a Web-navigable version of the PDH-CPG including online measures and clinical tools to assist in implementing the Guideline. The Clinicians Page contains information on any updates that are made to the PDH-CPG and supporting guidelines. PDHealth also has an on-line newsletter, Deployment Health News, published each business day that draws from publicly available sources to provide articles on health issues related to military service, deployments, and homeland security.
