Hospital Network with 19 Locations to Install Centricity EMR

MARCH 25, 2009 – St. Joseph Hospital (SJH) in Nashua, NH, has expanded its relationship with GE Healthcare through the selection of Centricity Electronic Medical Record (EMR) version 9.0 to enable its physicians to provide better, more coordinated patient care.

Centricity EMR version 9.0 is an electronic medical record system that enables ambulatory care physicians and clinical staff to document patient encounters, streamline clinical workflow, and securely exchange clinical data with other providers, patients, and information systems. Centricity EMR version 9.0 from GE Healthcare is a CCHIT Certified product for Certification Commission for Healthcare Information Technology (CCHIT) Ambulatory EHR 2007.

St. Joseph is a community hospital located with 70 employed physicians across 19 locations practicing family medicine, internal medicine, pediatrics, OB/GYN, pulmonary medicine and oncology. The hospital is part of St. Joseph Healthcare, a regional, full-service healthcare system serving the Greater Nashua area, western New Hampshire and northern Massachusetts.

Centricity EMR version 9.0 will be rolled out across the organization, replacing several other EMR systems. SJH expects to accelerate the clinical and financial benefits of full EMR adoption through this integrated, single vendor approach, implementing enterprise-wide ePrescribing and taking advantage of the powerful clinical content available through the broad network of Centricity customers.

“By implementing a robust EMR that meets the complex needs of community health providers, we are enabling our physicians to provide better, more coordinated patient care. With the new focus on EMR adoption from the federal government, our selection of Centricity EMR also makes even more sense from a financial standpoint. We recognize GE’s commitment to customer success and expect to be well-positioned to take advantage of the incentives for physician use that are part of the HITECH Act for Healthcare, enabling even greater investment in the health of our patients,” said President and CEO, St. Joseph Hospital Peter B. Davis, FACHE.

In addition, the hospital uses many GE Healthcare devices including X-ray, CT and MRI systems, and software solutions including Centricity Perinatal for the OB/GYN setting and Centricity DMS to automate their cardiology workflow. The connectivity between these devices and systems and Centricity EMR will allow the EMR to become a more comprehensive, central reference point for patient information, enhancing the provider experience and allowing SJH to improve patient care.
