    Programs that provide information about the symptoms, preventive measures, screening/diagnostic procedures, causes and origins and/or methods of treatment or management for specific illnesses or disabling conditions; and/or which disseminate information about the latest research with regard to a particular illness or condition. Included are programs that maintain disease registries, i.e., databases that contain information about people who have been diagnosed or have risk factors associated with a specific type of disease and have been treated by or received preventive care interventions from a particular hospital or live within a particular geographic area. Registry information is used by public health authorities to identify and investigate unusual patterns of occurrence of the disease and can help communities plan for and deliver needed medical services. It can also be used to support care management for groups of patients with one or more chronic diseases, such as diabetes, coronary artery disease or asthma (or those with associated risk factors); and to connect people with programs doing medical research.

    Defense Centers of Excellence, Defense and Veterans Brain Injury CenterThe Defense and Veterans Brain Injury Center (DVBIC) is a part of the U.S. military health system. Specifically, it is the traumatic brain injury (TBI) operational component of the Defense Centers of Excellence for Psychological Health and Traumatic Brain Injury (DCoE). Founded in 1992 by Congress, DVBIC’s responsibilities have grown as its network of care and treatment sites has grown. DVBIC's mission is to serve active duty military, their beneficiaries, and veterans with traumatic brain injuries through state-of-the-art clinical care, innovative clinical research initiatives and educational programs, and support for force health protection services. DVBIC fulfills this mission through ongoing collaboration with the DoD, military services, Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), civilian health partners, local communities, families and individuals with TBI. At 18 sites supported by a Washington, D.C-area headquarters, DVBIC treats, supports, trains and monitors service members, veterans, family members and providers who have been, or care for those who are, affected by traumatic brain injuries (TBI). DVBIC works at the macro-level, screening and briefing troops heading into theater, performing pre-deployment provider training and provider training at military treatment facilities, gathering data mandated by Congress and the Department of Defense (DoD), and overseeing research programs. At the micro-level, DVBIC treats service members and veterans with mild, moderate or severe TBI, and helps them from the moment of injury to their return to duty or reintegration into the community. DVBIC develops, provides and distributes educational materials for both military and civilian providers, families, service members and veterans. In 2011 DVBIC disseminated over 960,000 educational materials. The DoD has further solidified DVBIC’s role by naming it the Office of Responsibility for these tasks:
    • Creation and maintenance of a TBI surveillance database,
    • Service compliance for pre-deployment neurocognitive testing,
    • Creation and distribution of the Family Caregiver Curriculum,
    • Design and execution of a 15-year longitudinal study of the effects of TBI in Operations Iraqi and Enduring Freedom service members and their families,
    • Design and completion of independent head to head study to evaluate the reliability and validity of computerized neurocognitive tests.
