Falls Church, Va.-based Evolvent Technologies Inc., a provider of healthcare information technology services to the Federal Government, has recently won new and continued work in several areas to improve the lives of our nation's warriors, veterans, and their families. This new work was awarded by the Medical Research and Material Command (MRMC) / U.S. Army Medical Research Acquisition Activity (USAMRAA), the organization responsible for both the award and administration of the task orders.

Evolvent is pleased to support the Military Health System (MHS) Defense Health Information Management System (DHIMS) program office on the following tasks:

• Neurocognitive Assessment Tool (NCAT) - Evolvent is performing enhancements to the tool, which is used to determine a cognitive performance baseline, to potentially diagnose the presence of Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) after an exposure to concussive forces (as well as track post-exposure changes in cognitive function).
• Internal Classification of Diseases (ICD-10) - Evolvent is transitioning many of the MHS applications from the current ICD-9 code set to the ICD-10 code set. The new code set will ensure quality measurement, public health, research, organizational monitoring and performance, and reimbursement.
• Medical Evaluation Board (MEB) - Evolvent is providing enhancements to the current system to allow for more efficient medical disposition by medical professionals who are transitioning, or potentially transitioning, active duty personnel.
• National Council for Prescription Drug Programs (NCPDP) - Evolvent is updating the current system and standards that deliver and transfer data related medications, supplies and services in the healthcare industry. The changes include updating to NCPDP D.0 and X12 version 5010 defined by the latest HIPAA administrative simplification standards.
