New products, partnerships and customer wins are among health information technology vendor news announcements in recent days. For example:

* Independa, a vendor of software and hosted provider portals to enable the remote monitoring of home-based patients, will use cellular blood glucose meters from Telcare. The meters enable a patient to test glucose levels and have the results transmitted over cellular networks to Telcare’s central server, then to authorized clinicians via Independa’s portal.

* Memorial Hospital & Health System in South Bend, Ind., will implement breach detection software from FairWarning Inc. The software enables the automated monitoring of information systems to flag patterns of access that could indicate snooping and identity theft, based on more than 100 behavior-based scenarios. The software also audits disclosures of information and can drill down to isolate disclosures related to patient-specific complaints.

* Cancer Treatment Centers of America will implement the ForSite2020 enterprise scheduling software of Unibased Systems Architecture across its four campuses in or near Chicago, Philadelphia, Phoenix and Tulsa. A new facility opening in mid-2012 in Atlanta also will use the software. In addition to core hospital scheduling, the application includes a consumer portal for self-scheduling and a physician portal for office scheduling, order tracking and fax management.

* GE Healthcare has introduced Centricity Cardio Enterprise, a single point of access to patient information and images from any location. It includes a vendor neutral archiving platform.
