New contract signings that health information technology vendors announced during the week of November 16-20 include UC San Diego Health, Gifford Medical Center in Vermont and VA Loma Linda Hospital.

*UC San Diego Health has bought Merge Healthcare’s iConnect Access software to view images within the electronic health records software and a vendor-neutral archive called iConnect Enterprise Archive. Together, the products enable clinicians to access current and historical images at the point of care using a standard Internet browser.

*Gifford Medical Center in Randolph, Vt., will implement the emergency department information system of MEDHOST. One goal for the critical access hospital that also has a string of federally qualified health centers is to improve data abstraction capabilities to analyze performance of the ED department.

*The Veterans Affairs Loma Linda Healthcare System is live on patient engagement software from Allen Technologies. Using hospital room televisions, patients have access to a portal to get information on their medical condition and treatment, request certain services and have access to entertainment.
