July 11, 2007 - Today GE Healthcare released the latest version of Centricity Enterprise, an integrated software suite of clinical and financial applications that is designed to improve patient care and increase collaboration between clinicians, reportedly providing a better overall healthcare environment.
Centricity Enterprise offers comprehensive capabilities that help caregivers provide safer care for patients and clinical excellence throughout their healthcare organization. The software utilizes the user-friendly Computerized Provider Order Entry (CPOE), which screens every medication order for potential errors and offers point-of-care bar coding for safer medication administration. Organizations using Centricity Enterprise CPOE have reported reductions in potential adverse drug events (ADEs) by up to 75 percent.
The software provides caregivers with real-time access to a patient’s electronic records, allowing them to more closely monitor changing health conditions, document assessments more quickly, and communicate seamlessly with all care providers. Time that caregivers previously spent on paperwork can now be focused on treating patients.
Clinicians are able to collaborate quickly and efficiently through Centricity Enterprise. The software provides caregivers access to patient information across the healthcare continuum, including radiology and cardiology images and information – all right at the point of decision. This up-to-the-minute information helps caregivers to see, diagnose and treat the patient with the best care, and is a key component of the GE Healthcare vision of “Early Health,” focusing on early diagnosis, pre-symptomatic disease detection and disease prevention.
