Thank you for your interest in performing your annual training at Tripler Army Medical Center (TAMC). Reserve Affairs looks forward to working with you and it is our hope that your Annual Training (AT) experience is productive and safe. To help you prepare for your annual training and to ensure a smooth transition into TAMC, several resources are provided for you on our website.
The Information Guide for Reserve Component (RC) Medical Units, Individual Augmentees (IA) and Individual Ready Reserve (IRR) Soldiers is a 17 page document that provides policies and procedures for RC units, IA, IMA and IRR Soldiers who perform training at Tripler Army Medical Center.
TAMC’s Occupational Health Department ensures all TAMC employees meet the established immunizations and chemoprophylaxis requirements for in processing into TAMC. A soldier reporting to TAMC for AT must bring properly documented shot records. Certain health care providers require verification of credentials in order to be privileged to practice at Tripler Army Medical Center. The current credentialing packet requirements are on the Credentialing Checklist (RESERVE).
A training prerequisite that must be completed by all TAMC employees is HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act) which is completed on line on your home PC.
A tool provided to help us prepare you for AT is the Annual Training Individual Information Package. The Annual Training Individual Information Package is an excel spreadsheet where you iprovide data that we use to complete in processing requirements. The AT Individual Information Package will serve as the main communication tool between you, Reserve Affairs and TAMC departments. An Individual Annual Training Suspense List is also available to assist you in monitoring suspense items that must be completed prior to, during, and after AT.
Access to TAMC’s computer network, requires that you have at least a favorable National Agency Check (NAC) and complete TAMC Forms 833 and 835. You may need access to CHCS (Composite Health Care System) and/or CHCS II which is the computerized patient record system in use at TAMC. You cannot access CHCS or CHCS II with out first having a network account. The inability to use TAMC’s network can impact the quality of training.
Reserve Affairs looks forward to working with you as you prepare for your annual training here at TAMC. If you have questions remember we’re only a phone call or email away. I can be reached at 808-433-3701 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
