December 9, 2013 — GE Healthcare announced at the Radiological Society of North America Annual Meeting (RSNA 2013) the launch of Centricity 360, a GE Predictivity solution. Centricity 360 streamlines clinical collaboration among unaffiliated caregivers and patients to help reduce duplicate testing, avoid unnecessary patient transfers and lower diagnostic imaging distribution costs.
 
“With Centricity 360, your doctor can liberate the information he or she needs to exchange patient data and images with your care team, who in turn can make fast care decisions, regardless of location,” said Jan De Witte, president and CEO, GE Healthcare IT and Performance Solutions.
 
Centricity 360 is a professional online collaboration tool for clinicians. Through a suite of on-demand medical imaging applications, distributed care teams can collaborate on patient cases in near-real time. Because the applications and the collaboration tools are available through an enterprise-grade cloud services platform, there is no upfront investment required from clinical users, patients or integrated delivery networks.
 
“Connecting efficiently with our referral network and giving our clinicians easy access to data without having to send a CD is essential to achieving the best outcomes for patients,” said Dave Roach, vice president of IT and chief information officer, Kadlec Health System, Washington. Kadlec is a Centricity 360 collaboration partner. 
 
Secure cloud capabilities
Centricity 360 gives caregivers easy tools to exchange images and join private communities where they can engage in ongoing diagnosis and treatment discussions. Capable of running on any elastic cloud infrastructure, Centricity 360 is the first solution of its kind, supplying IT managers with virtually limitless storage and computing resources to process data.
 
“In critical care situations, speed is of the essence, but that speed must be secure,” said Mike Jackman, vice president and general manager, Specialty Solutions, GE Healthcare IT. “Centricity 360 addresses patient privacy with strong encryption protocols for data at rest and in transit. Centricity 360 supports the interoperability and stringent security standards that are locally required in each region.”
 
Enterprise support
For radiology departments using Centricity PACS-IW with Universal Viewer, sharing a patient’s case takes just one click from the picture archiving and communication system (PACS) user interface. For radiology departments who use PACS from other vendors, Centricity 360 complements their current workflows with cloud-based image archiving and sharing services.
 
Centricity 360 addresses the total cost of ownership challenges posed by traditional on-premise IT systems. It enables fast access to the latest technology, removes the burden of IT management and allows customers to pay for what they use with no capital investment. Furthermore, GE Healthcare provides flexible deployment options.
 
Centricity 360 is available for select pilot customers in the United States.
