showcase in its booth (No. 2247) new solutions designed

specifically for health providers, caregivers and patients, as

well as partner and customer success stories:

existing clinical electronic medical record (EMR) systems

and health and wellness devices, and provide quick access

to accurate patient information.

solutions from Microsoft's new portfolio of

enterprise-class health information systems are being

publicly demonstrated for the first time: Microsoft

Amalga, which allows hospitals to unlock data sitting in

isolated clinical, financial and administrative systems;

Microsoft Amalga Hospital Information System (HIS), a

fully integrated hospital information system designed for

emerging markets; and Microsoft Amalga RIS/PACS, available

as a stand-alone system as well as an integrated component

of Amalga HIS.

effort between Spectrum Health, Cerner Corp. and

Microsoft, the MyStation system empowers patients to take

an active role in their care. The entertainment component

of the system, powered by Microsoft Windows Media Center

and Xbox 360, provides a positive diversion for patients,

allowing them to listen to music, play video games and

watch movies or live TV.

* Caregiver collaboration. Microsoft unified communications

technologies can reduce medical errors, improve quality

care delivery and safety, and increase productivity for

health organizations. These solutions provide care team

members with quick access to information and to each other

through a familiar interface that is available on a

variety of devices and platforms.

Healthcare Users Group (MS-HUG) will host a ceremony to

unveil the winners of the 11th Annual MS-HUG Awards on
