About GE Centricity EMR
GE Healthcare’s Centricity EMR offers an electronic medical record (EMR) solution for large healthcare practices. The Centricity platform can be integrated with existing practice and revenue management tools to increase efficiency and reduce errors. Established practices value the program’s reliability, ease of use, and combination of physician and administrative features.
Centricity includes software that provides reliable service and reduces the need to access IT resources through low-maintenance technology. Centricity ensures provider practices comply with federal HIPAA privacy mandates without sacrificing staff productivity. Centricity EMR features e-prescribing tools that allow healthcare practitioners to reduce errors, respond to refill requests quickly, and monitor patient access to medication. The platform’s online patient portal creates a convenient and secure administrative hub, providing patients with the flexibility to schedule their own appointments, view billing statements, and access lab results. Centricity’s patient portal also allows patients to communicate with physicians through a secure channel that meets regulation standards. Centricity EMR includes additional tools for clinical, documentation and workflow management that enable physicians and medical staff to provide quality care in an efficient manner.
GE Healthcare’s Centricity EMR platform has been implemented by over 35,000 clinicians. One of Centricity EMR’s earlier customers, John G. Finn, M.D. of Bay Area Heart Center, needed to improve efficiency in his practice and enhance his ability to provide quality care. After launching Centricity EMR within his practice, Dr. Finn noted a significant increase in staff productivity and improved coordination of patient care. For Dr. Finn’s practice, this resulted in the ability to provide patients with comprehensive, high quality medical care.
