Vangent Ranks Among Top 100 Healthcare Informatics Companies

Expertise in Information Technology and Health Solutions Ranks Vangent at Number 31

ARLINGTON, VA--(Marketwire - Aug 1, 2011) - Vangent, Inc., a leading global provider of information management and strategic business process solutions, today announced that it ranks 31st on Healthcare Informatics magazine's list of Top 100 Healthcare Informatics Companies. The annual list, published in the June 2011 issue, ranks companies by annual health IT revenue.

"We are thrilled to be recognized as a leader in the healthcare informatics field," said Mac Curtis, President and CEO of Vangent. "This honor is a testament to Vangent's hard work and deep health expertise. It is a fitting tribute to our experience in designing, building and maintaining systems that enhance clinical care and reduce costs."

Vangent leads the Federal Health Architecture Program Management Office for the Department of Health and Human Services, the Office of the National Coordinator (ONC). Vangent played a key role in designing the next generation of informatics standards for the Nationwide Health Information Network, facilitating data exchanges across multiple IT departments.

In addition, Vangent developed the Health Information Exchange Open Source (HIEOS™), an open source implementation of Integrating the Healthcare Enterprise (IHE) integration profiles. This open-architecture platform enables secure health information exchange between disparate health communities (e.g. HIE, RHIO), thereby enabling care providers to have longitudinal perspectives of patients' health records. HIEOS provides core components that enable the exchange, location and/or storage of health information in a federated, hybrid or centralized model. HIEOS was selected by the Office of the National Coordinator (ONC) as the default XDS.b registry (record locator services) and repository (record storage services) implementation in the CONNECT Gateway.

Healthcare Informatics is a CIO-level publication that targets decision-makers in every type of healthcare organization. Its annual ranking is the only list of its kind in the healthcare IT field.
