Vangent Awarded $3.5 Million Contract by the Military Health SystemCompany to Refresh Website That Helps Service Members With Behavioral Health Issues (April 25, 2011)
ARLINGTON, VA -- (Marketwire) -- 04/25/11 -- Vangent, Inc., a leading global provider of information management and strategic business process solutions, announced today it was awarded a $3.5 million contract by the Military Health System to enhance afterdeployment.org, a government website that provides behavioral health and wellness resources to the military community.
Under the contract, Vangent will improve the existing site in addition to adding new preclinical programs and new functionality and managing the production, testing, deployment and maintenance of all programmatic and associated technologies.
www.afterdeployment.org is a web-based portal that provides behavioral health content and tools to Active Duty Service Members, members of the National Guard and Reserves, veterans and military families and providers who render services to the military community. Created in 2008 in response to the National Defense Authorization Act, the site aims to improve or augment military and civilian health care systems by providing early diagnosis and treatment of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder and other mental health conditions. The website includes assessments, workshops, videos and more to help military members after they are deployed.
"Vangent is pleased to be able to support afterdeployment.org in its mission to serve our nation's military community," said Mac Curtis, President and CEO of Vangent. "The improved website will make it easier for service members to find and access the health information they need, and ultimately, support their transition back into a civilian life."
VISUAL EYES, a company focused on strategic communications, enterprise knowledge and online learning, will partner with Vangent on the contract to provide interactive design expertise, create new learning management modules and produce videos for the site.
The contract has a base period of one year, with the option to extend an additional year. This award marks another win for Vangent's military health business, which has grown to more than $180 million in the past three and a half years. Vangent has also worked with the DoD to enhance the collection of Traumatic Brain Injury and behavioral health information for military service members throughout the entire continuum of care. In addition, Vangent is implementing an integrated Single Sign-On (SSO) and Context Management capability throughout the Military Health System.
