GE Healthcare Collaborates with HP on Software for Hospitals, Development Countries

May 20, 2008 - GE Healthcare IT today said it extended collaboration with HP to offer pre-configured, pre-installed GE Centricity Enterprise software on HP Integrity NonStop servers, targeting midsize hospitals and developing countries with lower cost and faster deployment of GE’s clinical workflow solution.

GE Healthcare IT is currently collaborating with HP to pilot a low-cost solution for new hospitals in the Gulf region and expects to begin marketing this globally in the second half of 2008. A wide range of offerings is expected through this expanded effort, including a pre-configured, tailored version of Centricity Enterprise Software installed on HP Integrity NonStop servers. The offering is targeted for new hospitals, which can benefit from the reduced time and cost of deployment. Special licensing, pricing and customized offerings are hoped to encourage healthcare technology adoption among clinics and hospitals in emerging markets. New configurations designed for customers who want a hosted infrastructure approach will also be offered.

For more than 20 years, the two companies have optimized GE Centricity Enterprise Software and HP Integrity NonStop servers for the world’s leading healthcare providers, ensuring higher efficiency and 99.9 percent reliability. HP Integrity servers are integral to the creation of a technology infrastructure that is the foundation for helping organizations lower costs, speed innovation into practice, operate more efficiently and improve the quality of care.

Further delivering on its commitment to offer customized solutions and faster deployment, GE also announced HP is an early member of the GE Centricity Enterprise Certification Network. As a tactic to meet the growing demand for deployment and customization, GE will train, certify and support leading systems integrators of the Centricity Enterprise suite.

Starting in the fourth quarter of 2008, GE will begin offering training and an associated certification that will provide its partners with the deep knowledge to adapt Centricity Enterprise software as a mark of quality assurance for customers. GE expects up to eight partners to participate in the program in the first year and will expand the program to include dozens of partners within the next three years. Training classes and certification exams initially will be held at GE’s Enterprise Solutions offices in Seattle and will be available regionally beginning in late 2009.
