Recognizing the importance of informatics and the role it will play in the future of health care, Altamonte Springs, Fla.-based NCG Medical Systems Inc. has established a $10,000 scholarship available to students enrolled in the program. The first NCG Medical Scholarship in Health Care Informatics will be awarded this semester.

"Helping talented students pursue their dreams of implementing the next generation of health care technology is one of our most important pursuits," said Antonio Arias, vice president of business development for NCG Medical and a 1995 UCF alumnus.

"It is an honor to team up with University of Central Florida," he added. "We are proud to support these young, talented students and reward their dedication and achievement in this developing field."

NCG Medical was founded in 1979 and is ranked among the top three providers of practice management software nationwide by the Professional Association of Health Care Office Managers. The company has installed software in over 2,000 medical offices spanning 24 states.
