Health information technology vendors have announced new products, services and initiatives in recent days. Among them:

* North Sunflower Medical Center in Ruleville, Miss., wants to be the first critical access hospital in the state to demonstrate meaningful use of electronic health records. The 25-bed facility will implement the Paragon community hospital information system, Practice Partner ambulatory electronic record, RelayHealth transactions processing services, and staff scheduling software of McKesson Corp., San Francisco. North Sunflower has 20 physicians and 24 mid-level practitioners. The hospital is taking advantage of a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity via the stimulus law's meaningful use incentives program, says Joanie Perkins, director of network development.

* Salt Lake City-based 3M Health Information Systems will team with mobile software developer IQMax Inc. to develop charge capture and ICD-10 documentation applications for use on mobile devices. The 3M branded software will run on iPad, iPhone, Android, Blackberry and Windows Mobile systems. Charlotte, N.C.-based IQMax previously worked with 3M to develop mobile dictation software.

* Consumer Health Technologies Inc., a vendor of consumer directed health care benefit administration platforms for insurers, third party administrators and financial services organizations, has named Jay Martinson as president. The position is new as it was time to add more senior management, says Pradeep Goel, CEO of the Fort Lauderdale, Fla.-based company. Martinson has 25 years of experience in health care, most recently as COO at Noridian Administrative Services in Fargo, N.D.
