Health information exchange progress, new geographic markets and a home care integration alliance highlight recent health information technology vendor announcements:

* InterSystems Corp. will provide the technology platform for the Statewide Health Information Network of New York. The vendor already powers some of the state’s regional health information exchanges, including Brooklyn HIE, which is one of three HIEs that initially will link to the statewide network. More than $300 million in state and federal funds are allocated to New York for HIE initiatives during the next three years.

* Puerto Rico Hospital Supply will sell and support a suite of physician software from NextGen Healthcare Information Systems in Florida, the Caribbean and Central and South America. NextGen technology partner Dell Inc. will remotely host the software, as NextGen seeks to significantly expand its geographic markets.

* Two companies selling remote monitoring software will integrate their products. Independa’s Artemis software enables wireless collection and transmission of health status, activity status and safety sensor data (such as smoke and room temperature) of individuals living at home or in assisted living units. Qualcomm Life Inc.’s 2net Platform captures medical device data and delivers it to caregiver portals or databases.
