Here is Health Data Management’s weekly roundup of new health IT contract wins and go-lives.

  • Wisconsin Illinois Senior Housing has selected TripleCare as its telemedicine services vendor for three skilled nursing facilities serving parts of Wisconsin and Illinois. They include 50-bed Montello (Wis.) Care Center, 61-bed Edgerton (Wis.) Care Center and 51-bed Fair Oaks Health Care Center in Crystal Lake, Ill. TripleCare physicians will perform virtual bedside visits with patients during overnight, weekend and holiday hours when regular physicians are not on site.
  • Titus Regional Medical Center in Mt. Pleasant, Texas, has engaged the services of EMR Everywhere under a 10-year contract to implement the Epic electronic health records software and ancillary software, while also providing ongoing hosting and support services that include improving workflows. The Epic package for the 175-bed hospital includes a patient portal, patient scheduling, revenue cycle management, population health tools and inpatient and outpatient modules.
  • Hospital Sisters Health System, with 15 hospitals and a string of community health centers serving 14 towns in Wisconsin and Illinois, has selected Health Catalyst as its vendor for data analytics, decision support and outcomes improvement software under a multi-year agreement. The organization chose the vendor after reviewing many options to replace a care management application that its accountable care organization and physician care network have been using.
  • The Los Angeles County Department of Health Services is a 20-year client of Harris Healthcare and has no plans to change vendors. The county has signed a new multi-year contract with Harris Healthcare after evaluating other revenue cycle management companies. The new contract includes on-site consulting and custom query writing services. The county’s delivery system includes 19 health centers and four hospitals caring for 600,000 patients annually.
  • U.S. Army Regional Health Command-Pacific is expanding its use of wireless voice communication and documentation software from Vocera Communications at three military facilities under a $2.8 million contract that completes a record year of federal bookings across the Department of Defense and Veterans Health Administration. A new deployment of the software will go in at Brian Allgood Army Hospital in South Korea, as well as large expansions at Tripler Army Medical Center and Schofield Barracks Health Clinic in Honolulu.
