GE' Centricity Enterprise, Monitored Care Systems Go Live at Hospital

September 22, 2009 – GE Healthcare reports that Community Hospital South (Indianapolis) is now live with GE Centricity Enterprise 6.1 and Monitored Care, an integrated clinical, financial and administrative solution that helps streamline workflow and improve productivity across the continuum of care. The implementation of the two solutions is designed to help Community Hospital South capture clinical and medical device data in a patient’s electronic medical record (EMR) system, enabling healthcare providers to provide comprehensive and efficient care.

Community Hospital South is a 200-bed licensed acute care facility serving south-central Indiana and is part of the Community Health Network, a health system nationally recognized for its quality of care and use of healthcare technology. GE Healthcare Centricity Enterprise will automate key clinical processes for lab orders, test results, pharmacy and care documentation with administrative, financial and billing processes throughout a comprehensive EMR system. By providing physicians with immediate access to medical data, the GE solutions help physicians make better- informed treatment decisions, allowing those physicians to decrease the potential for medication error while increasing the quality and safety of patient care. GE Healthcare Centricity EMR has been in place at the hospital since 2002.

Community Hospital South worked extensively with GE throughout the recent implementation process, offering thorough feedback along the way to ensure the final system, now in place, served their needs.

The implementation included Centricity Enterprise Monitored Care. Community Hospital South is the first hospital to go live with Centricity Enterprise Monitored Care, which integrates data from patient monitors, ventilators and IVs in monitored environments such as intensive care, cardiac care and emergency departments. This combines lab results, test orders and patient histories in a single EMR accessible from anywhere, helping to reduce time spent by care providers on manual documentation.
GE’s standards-based technology also allowed Community Hospital South to seamlessly connect data from non-GE systems into the Centricity Enterprise EMR.
