MHS Service Helpdesk

What is MHS Service Helpdesk?

The Military Health System (MHS) Service Helpdesk is an information technology (IT) tool that provides the Defense Health Agency (DHA) the ability to simplify and automate processes in all IT disciplines using a single system of action and a single user interface. The tool helps to reduce the cost of IT delivery, infrastructure and sustainment by rationalizing processes and technology using integrated data to enable compliant, secure and timely delivery of IT services.


The DHA purchased the commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) product, MHS Service Helpdesk, in July 2020. Deployment of the initial operating capability (IOC), Phase 1 to J-6 and MTF users occurred on May 28, 2021, replacing the legacy system Remedy. IOC supports (but is not limited to) the following capabilities: Problem Management, Incident Management, Change Management, Knowledge Management, Configuration Management, Request Management and the Service Catalog.
