Health information technology vendors have announced new initiatives and customer wins in recent days, including:

* The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia will launch a pilot telemedicine program with community hospitals following a $100,000 donation from Verizon Foundation. The pilot will include consultations covering intensive care, neonatal intensive care, inpatient pediatric care, neurology, genetics and emergency care.

* MD Anderson Cancer Center will use the Language Engine software of Health Language Inc. to map data collected in Clinic Station, its custom-built electronic health records system. The software will provide a standard terminology for data exchange between clinical and research systems, among other benefits.

* NextGen Healthcare Information Systems will resell to its ambulatory electronic health records clients the Dragon Medical speech recognition software of Nuance Communications.

* Mimosa Acoustics recently demonstrated its new touch-screen handheld hearing screener at the American Academy of Audiology’s annual conference and will begin shipping the product in July. The screener, called OtoStat, can test the middle and inner ear with a single probe fit, according to the vendor.
