Here is a sampling of more health information technology vendor announcements during HIMSS12 in Las Vegas:

* AT&T will take over hosting of the American Medical Association’s AMAGINE physician community Web portal, combining the portal with its Healthcare Information Exchange platform. AMAGINE OFFERS physicians discounted pricing for business intelligence resources, communications tools, consulting services, and software. The applications include electronic health records, e-prescribing, patient registries, PQRS reporting, lab ordering and results, revenue cycle management, secure email, medical reference content and clinical decision support. The alliance will place both organizations’ services on a single platform.

* Informatics Corp. of America, vendor of the CareAlign health information exchange platform, has introduced a module to support transitions of care, care collaboration and population management with analytics. The module, CareExchange, in essence, is the new IHE standards-based platform of ICA, which will continue to also serve HIEs that don’t use the standards. IHE is Integrating the Healthcare Enterprise, an industry collaborative that promotes use of established interoperability standards such as DICOM and HL7. Middle Tennessee eHealth Connection, a Nashville-based HIE, expects to be live on CareExchange in late spring.

* Physician software vendor eClinicalWorks has introduced a care coordination portal to support accountable care organizations and patient-centered medical homes. The portal, available in summer 2012, is built on the vendor’s health information exchange platform, and collects data from disparate inpatient and ambulatory electronic health records systems. It integrates with a new data analytics application also available in the summer. Greater Baltimore Medical Center has signed a contract for both new applications and the New York City Department of Health was an analytics pilot site.

* Community hospital information systems vendor Healthland will resell the OneSign single-sign-on and access management software of Imprivata.

* Cerner will upgrade its Millennium EHR product for hospitals, adding advanced search capabilities for external data sources and touch-screen navigation capabilities for the iPad.
