By facilitating access to complete patient data across multiple locations and systems, our eHealth solutions provide a step further towards evidence based medicine, which will allow for enhanced quality of care, improved productivity and a reduction of costs and medical errors,” said Bernard Algayres, General Manager eHealth for Europe, Middle East and Africa at GE Healthcare IT.
GE Healthcare is delivering global solutions in partnership with eHealth technology provider ICW, headquartered in Germany. This collaboration drives the exchange of data among a large variety of legacy clinical systems, including imaging products: HIS, RIS, PACS, EMR (Electronic Medical Record),
Laboratories, Pharmacies and other devices, like care and disease management products, involved in diagnostic or patient monitoring.
Continuous innovation in Imaging Solutions
GE Healthcare is actively driving its imaging solutions portfolio to the next level. At Arab Health the company presents latest digital solutions for radiology, mammography and cardiology that meet the challenges in modern healthcare environments.
“Centricity RIS/PACS is our powerful Web-based technology to connect radiologists, clinicians and referring physicians with ultra-fast streaming, advanced post processing and business intelligence tools,” said Juergen Reyinger, Vice President and General Manager at GE Healthcare IT for Europe, Middle East and Africa.
With its open standards-based architecture and portable Centricity Portal, it enables users to access the capabilities they need regardless of time, location or institution. “Our latest release of Centricity PACS supports more than 900 customer sites around the globe and offers information at their fingertips: patient data, clinical documents and images, streamlined workflows and improved communication among healthcare experts,” Reyinger explained.
More evidence of GEs push into the information technology dimension in healthcare.
Joining up the different information sources and enabling collaborative review would seem to be a fundamental requirement if healthcare is going to accelerate the pace of innovation.
That’s what we plan to do with the Clinical Research Hub, albeit in a different implementation to the one described here.
