Health information technology vendors have made several announcements of new products or initiatives in recent days, including:

* UW Medicine, the delivery system of the University of Washington, will expand its use of the Amalga data integration and aggregation software of Microsoft Corp. following a pilot program. The organization will focus on supporting clinical, translational research to accelerate getting new discoveries into clinical settings. The school in the pilot used the software to enroll patients in clinical trials, collect study-specific data, link study data to clinical data and facilitate statistical analyses.

* Ambulatory software vendor SuccessEHS now enables access to its electronic health records software on Apple iPads. The Birmingham, Ala.-based company serves about 500 customers totaling some 20,000 clinicians and other users.

* Medical Messenger has received from the Drummond Group a Complete EHR certification of its ambulatory AstralJet electronic health records software, Version 4, as supporting meaningful use requirements.

* The Beacon Community of the Inland Northwest, serving eastern Washington and northern Idaho, will use health information exchange software from Orion Health. The HIE platform will support care coordination for improved diabetes management and tracking. Inland Northwest is one of 17 HITECH-funded Beacon Communities that will accelerate their use of health information technologies and develop best practices that other communities can model.
