How to get an ADRSi account:
Before granting access to sensitive personal and health information, the Army requires command or unit-level assurance that the information will be handled in accordance with the Privacy Act and the Health Insurance Portability and Assurance Act (HIPAA). This requirement is documented on DD Form 2875 System Authorization Access Request (SAAR) and available via the ADRSi login page.
ADRSi accounts are processed by the ADRSi Help Desk located at the Army Public Health Center (APHC). The Air Force and Navy both utilize AFDRSi and NDRSi, respectively; these are separate reporting systems with separate requirements and Help Desks. All ADRSi users must only gain access to ADRSi via the ADRSi Help Desk, NOT the Navy Help Desk. Contact information for the ADRSi Help Desk is listed below.
Steps for gaining access to ADRSi
1.) Complete the DRSi Initial User Training Course
- Register for the course on ATRRS: https://www.atrrs.army.mil/
