Blanchfield Army Hospital - BACH - Fort Campbell KYFort Campbell, KY – A short computer-based program that plays more like a memory game than a medical assessment is recording personal data that can help Soldiers affected by traumatic brain injury.

The U.S. Department of Defense introduced the assessment in 2008, across all services for service members deploying to specific areas of operation. The Automated Neuropsychological Assessment Metric is a computer-based assessment given during pre-deployment screening and is one measure that can be used in evaluating Soldiers for TBI.
