GE Inks Major Partnerships

May 16, 2008 – GE and AMIRSYS entered into a partnership, introducing AMIRSYS’ STATdx diagnostic decision support to the GE Centricity RIS-IC, to allow healthcare organizations to grow their image-based procedural medicine businesses through improved patient and physician access, streamlined workflow and reporting to the referring physician community.

STATdx, reportedly the first point-of-care, diagnostic reference support system for imaging in the U.S., is designed to support the busy practicing radiologist by increasing speed, accuracy and diagnostic quality in complex cases. STATdx also works to assist orthopedic surgeons, neurologists, women’s health centers and emergency departments improve patient care. Offering Diagnostic Decision Support with Centricity RIS-IC enables customers to improve workflow by reducing the time required to research and complete difficult imaging analysis.

GE said at SIIM 2008, that the company will partner with M*Modal, incorporating M*Modal’s advanced speech technology, AnyModal Conversational Documentation Services (CDS), as part of GE’s Centricity RIS-IC Reporting module, aiming to transition the industry from speech recognition to speech understanding.

The solution will aim to benefit physicians and radiologists with higher process efficiency, more accurate clinical documentation and dictation without changes in workflow. In addition, the technology is designed to continually learn, so the more it is used, the more accurate it becomes.

The company also partnered with Orthocrat Ltd to introduce an orthopedic digital image management and surgical planning solution that provides a single interface for Centricity PACS-IW and Orthocrat’s TraumaCad software, featuring Web-based, single-click access to digital templating tools.

Web-based Centricity PACS-IW could potentially allow orthopedic surgeons to integrate templating into clinical workflow, maintaining all images, reports and templating results in one location, as well as potentially integrated into an electronic medical record (EMR). No pre-existing TraumaCad software needs to be loaded at the location where the orthopedist requires access. Once authenticated into Centricity PACS-IW, from any client location accessible via the Internet, the user simply needs to request the TraumaCad software plug-in, which is then quickly downloaded from the server.
