As it stands right now, you use defense screen when you're taking damage. It prevents so little it usually disappears after 1 decent attack lands, giving you less than a gcd to benefit from it...sometimes not at all. The only time it would be useful is if you just took a lot of dmg, then popping screen and healing to full quicker. Such a small % of situations would actually benefit from these 2 points that would be better spent elsewhere.
I would get rid of it if all I did was OPS, but doing PUG HMFP I will keep it until PUG DPS learns what order to kill.

And I do use it for the exact reason you describe, to get myself back to full health. I will also say it works well as we have done at least 4 HMFP including Directive 7 without a tank after the Tank afk during the FP. So my build is a hybrid Scoundrel Healer/Tank.
