A number of health information technology vendors have announced new customer wins in recent days. They include:

* Inpatient behavioral health provider Acadia Healthcare Company will use a suite of financial management applications in more than two dozen facilities. The integrated accounts payable, general ledger, health information management, patient accounting, pharmacy and referral tracking modules are from community hospital software vendor Healthcare Management Systems in Nashville, Tenn.

* Unity Health System in Rochester, N.Y., will use the health information exchange platform of dbMotion to connect information systems across its enterprise and support patient-centered medical homes.

* Atlanta Medical Center will use the RF Assure Detection System from RF Surgical Systems in its operating rooms to prevent sponges and other items from being left in patients. The system, which augments counting protocols, uses a detection mat on the surgical table to scan the surgical site and issue an alert if a radio frequency-tagged item remains inside.

* Rockingham Memorial Hospital in Harrisonburg, Va., is adding Amcom Software’s encrypted smartphone messaging, directory, on-call scheduling and emergency notification software to its Cisco wireless network. All communications will be logged in an audit trail, inboxes will have password protection and messages can be remotely deleted from lost or stolen devices.

* Nine-hospital Spectrum Health in Grand Rapids, Mich., will use document imaging and management software from Kofax plc to capture more than 600,000 documents annually. The contract exceeds $300,000, according to the vendor.

* Virtua, a Marlton, N.J.-based delivery system, is using the VEGA medical device connectivity software from Nuvon Inc. to capture device data in its Picis peri-operative information system. The OR initiative represents the first phase of an initiative to use the technology across the four-hospital delivery system.

* Christus Health in Irving, Texas, is implementing electronic health records optimization software from Compuware Corp. in Detroit. The vendor’s Gomez Platform enables the identification and resolution of performance issues before a system downtime occurs.
