Many health information technology vendors are announcing this week the new products and services they will be highlighting at HIMSS13 in New Orleans:

* Revenue cycle management vendor Emdeon, which also operates the largest claims clearinghouse, will use the xPatterns data analytics software from Atigeo to mine the petabytes of data it holds.

* Real-time location system vendor Versus and hygienic dispensing systems vendor Georgia-Pacific will demonstrate how integrating RTLS into a hand-hygiene regimen can track and improve compliance with best practices. Georgia-Pacific’s new hand hygiene and monitoring system is called SafeHaven.

* Pediatric Associates of Bellevue, Wash., a client of software firm Greenway Medical Technologies, will demonstrate use of the Blue Button technology in the vendor’s patient portal to ease consumers’ access to their own health information. The demo will be part of the HIMSS Interoperability Showcase.

* Ambulatory revenue cycle/clinical management services and software vendor athenahealth has new analytics software, called athenaClarity. The product supports collecting and harmonizing data across disparate clinical and financial information systems, operates off a single cloud-based platform and supports analysis of fee-for-service or value-based payments.

* Caradigm, the joint venture firm of GE Healthcare and Microsoft, has introduced a cloud-based, next-generation version of its Amalga data aggregation and analytics software. The product will lower the total cost of ownership, according to the company. UW Medicine, the health system of the University of Washington, is an early adopter of the new version.
