next generation of technology for the federal government, today announced that
the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) has chosen Aquilent for two health IT
support contracts valued at more than $2.7M combined. Under the terms of the
contracts, Aquilent will provide healthcare revenue data migration and health
risk assessment solutions.

Specifically, under the first contract, Aquilent will develop and execute a
detailed strategy and plan for the migration of healthcare revenue data from
existing systems to VA`s new Revenue Improvement and System Enhancements (RISE)
solution.RISE is being implemented by the Veteran's Health Administration (VHA),
one of the world's largest health care delivery organizations, to improve
operational efficiencies and standardization for revenue cycle processes. Under
the second contract, Aquilent will engage stakeholders to create a combined set
of health assessment questions for VA and the Department of Defense (DoD), and
prototype a combined Health Risk Assessment Instrument (HRAI). When implemented,
this solution will give active duty service members, reserves, veterans, and
their families direct access to health risk assessments which can be
incorporated into Personal Health Records (PHR).

"The VA continues to demonstrate its leadership in enabling collaboration and
participation in healthcaremanagement for veterans, their families, and other VA
stakeholders," stated David Fout, President and CEO of Aquilent. "A solid health
IT strategy is paramount to this approach and Aquilent is honored to have the
opportunity to play a role in these new projects."

These new contracts are part of the cumulative $13M in new business awarded to
