San Francisco, CA, 11/23/2009 -- 


Innotas (, the exclusive provider of on-demand IT Governance, is seeing increasing demand by healthcare providers for its software that delivers an easy-to-use, rapid-to-deploy, and cost-effective way to manage resources and budgets across an IT department's entire inventory of projects, portfolios, applications, assets, and service requests. Recent healthcare customers include CHG Healthcare Services, Benedictine Health System, West Penn Allegheny Health System, WellStar Health Systems, Inc., and Neighborhood Health Plan of Rhode Island, to name a few.

Healthcare is a growth industry that is under intense pressure to embrace new technologies, such as electronic records, billing systems, CT scanning/imaging that can drive better care and increase bottom lines. With this brings the increased need by healthcare IT departments to better manage the strategic direction, prioritization, control, visibility, processes and tasks associated with deploying new technologies, as well as manage and maintain these systems moving forward.

"There is an amazing amount of activity tied to Healthcare becoming more technology-based, but that comes with incredible cost-control initiatives and scrutiny as healthcare providers work on extremely thin margins," said Keith Carlson, Innotas CEO. "Innotas On-Demand IT Governance provides a cost-effective, seamless and collaborative platform that provides transparency between Healthcare IT and their internal customers, which net-net enables better, more informed decisions across the projects they are working on and overall increases in ROI and productivity," continued Carlson.
