Abstract : The Army Hearing Program Status Report (AHPSR) is a component of the Public Health Management System (PHMS) and provides a means for the installation Hearing Program Managers (HPM) to monitor, assess, and report aspects of their programs as required by Department of Defense Instruction (DODI) 6055.12, Department of the Army Pamphlet (DA PAM) 40-501, and the Chief of Staff of the Army's Safety and Occupational Health objectives. U.S. Army Medical Command (MEDCOM) Chief of Staff Memorandum, dated 15 December 2016, mandates participation in the survey. Chapter 9 of DA PAM 40-501 directs HPMs to collect and report certain metrics for the purpose of program evaluation. The AHPSR is structured in such a way as to capture all of the required elements in the chapter. This provides a vehicle for the collection of Measures of Performance (MOP) and Measures of Effectiveness (MOE) in order to report the metrics as directed. This report provides the data for the responses recorded from the first quarter of fiscal year 2017 (Q1 FY17). The report contains tables of the responses aggregated by region and by the respective installations within the region. To correspond to the reporting requirements detailed in DA PAM 40-501, the survey is broken into four sections: Hearing Readiness, Clinical Hearing Services, Operational Hearing Services, and Hearing Conservation.
