GE Launches Revenue-Cycle Solution for Partners

JANUARY 16, 2006 — GE Healthcare launched its Centricity Business Certified Partner Program, a program designed for qualified third-party practice management (PM) and billing companies simplified access to industry leading revenue-cycle technologies for optimizing client business processes, along with services designed to support partners growing their businesses.
Created to help organizations excel in today’s complex healthcare environment, the Certified Partner Program offers participants access to GE’s Centricity Business (formerly IDX Flowcast) solution. To further meet the needs of third-party service firms, the solution has been configured for easy setup and rapid installation. For example, by offering the Centricity Business solution on an application service provider (ASP) model—hosted at GE’s data warehouse in Illinois—this scalable solution simplifies workflow and eases the cost and space burdens faced by these independent practice management and billing service organizations.
In addition to access to robust end-to-end revenue cycle management tools and advanced healthcare information systems functionality, the Certified Partners Program also offers services and resources, including staff training, access to financing (through GE Healthcare Financial Services), and co-marketing programs to help implement and support efficient revenue-cycle processes. These resources are instrumental in supporting customers’ growing businesses.
The Certified Partners Program was also created to help the partners’ customers—physician practice groups and other healthcare organizations—streamline patient access and facilitate more accurate and timely patient billing. More efficiency in financial and administrative tasks allows physicians to spend more time on their core strength ? patient care.
“The Certified Partners Program is an addition to our growing product and service portfolio aimed at helping to bridge the gap in healthcare,” said James M. Corrigan, vice president and general manager for GE Healthcare Integrated IT Solutions. “Access to the latest healthcare information technologies can no longer belong strictly to larger organizations but instead must be available to all providers if we are to improve the costs and state of today’s healthcare.”
