GE launches integrated healthcare IT suite

15 February 2006

GE Healthcare, a division of General Electric Company (NYSE:GE), has unveiled its first product resulting from its January 2006 takeover of IDX. Launched under the Centricity product brand at the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) annual conference in San Diego, it is a suite of clinical, financial and business management solutions.

"The new GE Healthcare Integrated IT Solutions business is combining the best minds in medicine, technology, and business to transform the way healthcare is delivered by offering customers a comprehensive suite of clinical, financial and business management solutions that support knowledge-driven care," said Vishal Wanchoo, president and CEO of GE Healthcare Integrated IT Solutions. "These powerful new capabilities position GE as a leading healthcare IT provider, helping customers streamline healthcare costs, reduce medical errors and improve the overall quality of patient care."

GE's range of healthcare products now extend throughout a patient's journey through the healthcare continuum, including inpatient and outpatient electronic health records, imaging, monitoring devices, and departmental systems, such as perinatal and perioperative, modular decision support; home monitoring device integration; and portable lifetime patient health records.

"By offering a comprehensive solution of information technologies, we are truly integrating healthcare delivery by seamlessly capturing a comprehensive view of the patient," said Wanchoo. "This view will help all care providers better predict, diagnose and treat their patients — resulting in more effective and cost efficient care."
