Health information technology vendors aren't holding all of their announcements for the upcoming HIMSS11 Conference in Orlando. Here are some new initiatives announced in recent days:

* Unibased Systems Architecture's ForSite2020 access management and surgery system, version 7.0, has received inpatient and outpatient modular EHR meaningful use certification from the Drummond Group.

* Orion Health Inc. has embedded in its health information exchange platform the Language Engine application of Health Language Inc. The engine gives access to more than 100 code sets and medical terminologies. Embedding the application enables Orion Health's HIE to map data from disparate systems to standardized codes and terminologies.

* Charlotte Hungerford Hospital in Torrington, Conn., will implement health information exchange software, which includes an "EHR-lite" application, from MobileMD Inc. The goal for the 109-bed hospital is to securely share patient data with community providers, which also is a requirement for achieving meaningful use, says CIO Jim Albert.

* San Francisco-based Resilient Network Systems, a vendor of software to move sensitive information securely over the Internet, has named Kirk Loevner as CEO. Loevner is a former CEO at mobile drug reference content software vendor Epocrates Inc.
