In addition to the FedHealthIT 100 award, we’ve received several other awards this year of which we are very proud:
- G2Xchange Disruptive Tech Program Award: Earlier this year, we nominated three client projects for this award. In August, the VBA Dependency Claims project that we support was selected as a 2020 G2Xchange Disruptive Tech Program Award Winner. This award recognizes those who push forward every day by driving disruptive change that positively impacts the mission they serve. Our VBA-OBPI team mitigated and reduced the backlog of nearly 250,000 Veterans benefit claims applications filed by family members, dependents, and survivors. This program serves as a model for where process improvement and technology can intersect to provide high return on investment. VBA-OBPI will further utilize this model to rapidly overcome other claims-related backlog needs. Outstanding recognition for this team!

We want to congratulate VHA’s StrongMind Virtual Reality PTSD Therapy, which was chosen as a top 8 innovations and won the Game Changer Award, a disruptive innovation that creates significant new or different solutions or delivers a major breakthrough on a longstanding problem.
