Military Awards $1.4 Million

The Military Health System awarded $1.4 million to Vangent, Inc. in Arlington Virginia to help collect Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) and associated Behavioral Health (BH) information for military service members throughout the entire continuum of care. The contract’s subcontractors include Akimeka, LLC, Guident, Inc., Enterprise Information Management, Inc., Forgentum, Inc. and n-tieractive, Inc.

The program is managed by the MHS Defense Health Information Management System (DHIMS) program office and supports the DOD and VA response to the President’s Commission on Care for America’s Returning Wounded Warriors.

The contract calls for Vangent to develop a clinical information technology solution to improve the workflow of patients’ behavioral health information and then integrate this data into the military’s electronic health record. When the system is deployed, the information will be quickly available to use for diagnosis, treatment, and ultimately will help to produce positive clinical outcomes.

Other Vangent major contracts include the Common User Database for the Force Health Protection & Readiness Program, E-Commerce Operational System Support for the TRICARE Management Activity, and the Executive Information and Decision Support for the Military Health System.
