Intermountain Healthcare and GE Healthcare Form Alliance for Clinical Content Development

Together, GE Healthcare and Intermountain are working to help enhance patient care by accelerating the adoption of electronic health records and the use of evidence-based medicine and other forms of best practice among health systems in the U.S.
As part of the new agreement, GE and Intermountain will work together to enhance the Centricity Enterprise Solution by developing and incorporating standardized vocabulary and clinical element models that will help enable the use of clinical data, such as protocols for optimal use of antibiotics, providing clinicians with critical decision support tools at the point of care. 
 “It’s about bringing science from the research arena to the bedside quicker,” said Mark Dente, MD and vice president of Healthcare Solutions for GE Healthcare Integrated IT Solutions. “Today the amount of time it takes for the widespread adoption of the latest medical treatments and protocols is entirely too long, but with the use of information technology we can make the latest medical information breakthroughs accessible and easier for physicians, nurses and others to implement.”
“It is time we made use of breakthrough science, best clinical practices and evidence-based medicine to improve patient care and reduce medical errors by making it available and actionable for physicians and patients during routine visits,” said David Burton, vice president for Health Delivery Research at Intermountain Healthcare. “Beginning with standardized terminology, we will lay the foundation of a common language so that physicians, nurses and other bedside caregivers will have the latest guidelines available in the clinic and at the bedside,” said Burton.
