A reorganization, acquisition and investment are among recent health information technology vendor initiatives:

* Science Applications International Corp., an information technology contractor and consultancy, is splitting the company into two independent, publicly traded firms. A “technical services” unit will focus on government and enterprise business services. A “solutions unit” will focus on the national security, engineering and health care sectors. In the past year, SAIC bought the health I.T. consulting firms Vitalize Consulting Solutions and maxIT Healthcare. The technical unit will start as a $4 billion business with the solutions unit a $7 billion business, based on expectations for the fiscal year ending Jan. 31, 2013. SAIC expects the spin-off to occur during the second half of the next fiscal year.
