Health information technology vendors have made several announcements in recent days, including:

* Telemedicine technology vendor Reach Health Inc. has introduced a new service for critical care. Called Reach Tele-ICU, the vendor now offers real-time consultations between clinicians in intensive care units and remote pulmonologists and intensivists. The service is cost-justifiable with as few as four ICU beds, according to the vendor.

* Virtusa Corp., which offers business consulting and outsourcing services to large businesses in multiple industries, has introduced Web based software to help provider organizations determine the financial impact of migrating from ICD-9 code sets to ICD-10. The Financial Modeler software enables identification of disruptions in cash flow through delayed collections and reduced reimbursement, and other revenue cycle management gaps to help determine remediation plans.

* Health insurer Aetna will this fall start offering members access to an enhanced version of the Life Game online social game for personal wellness from Mindbloom Inc., Seattle. Life Game is a personal wellness application designed to inspire participants to live healthier, more balanced lives. More information on the Aetna offering, which will include mobile features, is available at mindbloom.com/aetna.
