Washington State Practices Adopt GE Centricity EMR

December 11, 2008 – GE Healthcare IT has recognized Puget Sound Family Physicians for its reported exemplary use of GE Centricity Electronic Medical Record (EMR) to extend the benefits of “going digital” to practices and patients in the greater Seattle area.

A family practice network of four clinics with 44 providers, Puget Sound Family Physicians (PSFP) was an aggressive adopter of clinical IT solutions. Since 2006, the advanced features of Centricity EMR have helped the practice’s physicians and staff improves patient care and satisfaction, with a positive impact on the organization’s bottom line, said GE. Now, Puget Sound is lending this implementation and adoption expertise to four other practices in the King County, WA community.

With funding provided by a local hospital via federal Stark Law Relaxation legislation, practices in the area are able to purchase electronic medical records, but many of these small physician groups lack the IT staff and experience to optimize their EMR implementation. Puget Sound has been tapped to work directly with the practices during all phases of the switch from paper-based to digital healthcare, advising each group’s leadership and sharing best practices for clinical content and workflows.
