Completion of two large electronic health records deployments highlight recent news from health information technology vendors:

* Greenway Health has completed implementation of electronic health records software across more than 8,200 Walgreens stores. The EHR enables access to patients’ prescription, immunization and health testing records for more than 27,000 pharmacists to aid in closing gaps in care, particularly with immunizations and tests. The cloud-based EHR was specially designed for the pharmacy chain and integrates with other systems in the stores.

* Electronic health records vendor eClinicalWorks has completed deploying its software in all 23 U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement detention facilities. The EHR integrates with the agency’s laboratory, radiology and pharmacy information systems. The company worked on the project with government contractor Harris Corporation to standardize ICE electronic health records.

* Roper Industries, a vendor of products and services for multiple industries, has added to its healthcare holdings with two acquisitions. The company bought Santa Barbara, Calif.-based Strategic Healthcare Programs, which sells clinical, financial and data analytics software to post-acute care facilities and has more than 3,000 sites. Roper also acquired Suwanee, Ga.-based Innovative Product Achievements, which has automated surgical scrub dispensing equipment in more than 650 hospitals. Terms of the deals were not disclosed. Roper owns laboratory information systems vendor Sunquest, along with medical imaging systems, computer-assisted surgery systems, spectrographs, portable computers and medical carts.
