ANDOVER, Mass. -- Sentillion, Inc. announced today that it has been selected as a preferred technology provider by the University HealthSystem Consortium (UHC) and will offer its Vergence software suite to UHC's alliance of academic medical centers in the U.S. and overseas.

"Our members desire to provide their clinicians with the best information tools available," said John Sampson, director of technology and management services at UHC. "Vergence is a good fit for our members because it is a standards-based solution that works effectively with all major clinical systems, as well as with custom applications.

UHC member hospitals include such well-known institutions as Massachusetts General Hospital, Yale-New Haven Hospital, Emory University Hospital, Georgetown University Hospital, Stanford Hospital and Clinics, Mt.

Vergence offers them the only practical and proven solution in the market that meets the pressing healthcare IT needs for data security, caregiver productivity, and patient confidentiality."
 Vergence Offers Fast Synchronized Access to Patient Data in Multiple

Vergence is Sentillion's modular family of products designed to meet the unique productivity and privacy needs of healthcare providers: strong authentication for system security, single sign-on for efficient user access, context management for synchronized patient information, and privacy management for patient confidentiality. Vergence works with industry leading healthcare applications from Cerner, Eclipsys, IDX, McKesson, Siemens, GE, and many others. Vergence is fully scalable to any size healthcare enterprise -- from small clinics and community hospitals to large medical centers and multi-state delivery networks.

With Vergence, caregivers are provided fast, secure access to medical information from multiple applications. Once a caregiver selects a patient in one application, Vergence synchronizes all of the applications to the same patient, saving the caregiver time and minimizing the chance for medical errors. Transparent to the caregiver, but important to the patient, all access to patient records via Vergence-aware applications are recorded in a central audit database for easy analysis and reporting by the healthcare institution.
