New client wins and milestones highlight recent announcements from health information systems vendors:

* Duke University Health System will use ICD-10 remediation software from Health Language Inc., as well as the vendor’s Language Engine terminology management system. The products will support analyzing historical claims data to prioritize ICD-10 coding needs, and mapping and normalizing data from disparate sources.

* Regional Medical Center at Memphis has implemented perioperative and anesthesiology information systems from Surgical Information Systems that interoperate with its Soarian EHR from Siemens. The process took six months and includes a tissue tracking and management application, and role-based data analytics to support optimized performance and perioperative outcomes.

* General Dynamics Information Technology will continue supporting the Indian Health Service’s electronic health record, called the Resource and Patient Management System, under a five-year contract worth up to $20.6 million. Enhancements will include connecting IHS facilities to the emerging Nationwide Health Information Network and updating legacy applications.
