Expanding access to health information is the cornerstone of three recent announcements from software vendors:

* Hospitals and skilled nursing facilities in Santa Clara County in California, working through the Hospital Council of Northern and Central California, will use the Carebook platform of start-up vendor CareInSync to connect the acute care facilities using mobile computing devices. The project will start with three hospitals--Kaiser Permanente Santa Clara Medical Center, Santa Clara Valley Medical Center and O’Connor Hospital--transmitting data with nine nursing facilities. Hospital personnel will manage patient care transitions in real time using iPads and iPhones. A second phase hopes to connect another 10 hospitals and 30 skilled nursing facilities across the county. CareInSync’s investors include Samsung Venture Investment Corp., HealthTech Capital, California Health Care Foundation and Hearst Business Media.
