GE Medical Systems Information Technologies has purchased SEC, a developer of enterprise-wide clinical information systems. Terms of the deal were not disclosed. SEC's suite of CIS software applies client-server and Internet-based architecture to enable efficient point-of-care clinical work processes and provide a single, comprehensive clinical data repository. Vik Kheterpal, formerly president and CEO of SEC, is now general manager of CIS for GE.

In a related development, Sentillion's Vergence Context Management software will be integrated into GE's QS clinical information system for use in perinatal and critical care applications. GE is using Vergence software development tools to enhance QS with the HL7 CCOW standard, which defines the basis for creating a cooperative, multivendor clinical desktop.
