Health information technology vendors in recent days have made several announcements. Among them:

* Physician vendor eClinicalWorks has won bragging rights as one of its clients was the first in the nation to receive a Medicaid meaningful use incentive payment check. Cynthia Taylor, M.D., of Family Medicine Associates of Norman, received a first-year $21,250 check from the Oklahoma Health Care Authority.

* UMass Memorial Health Care in Worcester, Mass., has implemented the iConnect Access software of Merge Healthcare, enabling physicians to view medical images while within their electronic health records system. The viewing application is integrated with records software from Allscripts.

* The American Hospital Association's AHA Solutions Unit has exclusively endorsed the remote data center hosting services of CareTech Solutions. The Troy, Mich.-based company specializes in partial and full outsourced information technology operations and management, or the hosting of specific applications such as Web portals. The vendor has three data centers.

* Broomfield, Conn.-based Affygility Solutions has introduced software to enable environmental, health and safety professionals to manage compliance programs on smart phones. The Affytrac Mobile application works on iPhone, iPod Touch, Android, and certain Blackberry devices. For details, visit
