A large contract, new investments in population management and ICD-10 testing readiness are among recent announcements from health information technology vendors:

* Texas Health Resources will implement patient education software from Emmi Solutions in its 14 hospitals and offer it to affiliated physicians with admitting privileges. Chicago-based Emmi offers interactive presentations on hundreds of medical conditions and related procedures. The presentations educate patients while providing informed consent documentation. Physicians using Emmi's content give their patients access codes to view presentations on computers or mobile devices. The software can be used standalone or integrated into information systems or patient portals.
