The GE Centricity System
CHCA selected GE’s Centricity product, an EHR system that can enable ambulatory care physicians and clinical staff to document patient encounters, streamline clinical workflow, and securely exchange clinical data with other providers, patients, and information systems.
GE Centricity is both CCHIT certified for Interoperability and NCQA certified to support doctors who wish to pursue the NCQA/American Diabetes Association Diabetes Physician Recognition Program.
Centricity does much more than replace a paper chart; it supports clinical decision making:
- Drug interaction checking helps minimize the chances for medication errors
- Both standard and customized protocols flag health maintenance procedures
- Centricity presents the progress of a problem over time, including all detailed assessments
- The built-in and custom reports identify areas of concern, such as drug recalls, and quickly enable users to generate communications to patients
With this information you can monitor performance to organizational goals, improve the success of patient outreach programs, and negotiate more successfully with health plans and payers, based on actual performance.
