GE healthcare & intermountain healthcare to offer leading radiology solution across network

AZDEL : 25 September, 2007  (Company News)
GE Healthcare and Intermountain Healthcare, one of the nation's top integrated healthcare system, announced today a contract for the implementation of GE's Centricity(R) Radiology Solution, a combined picture archiving communications system solution and industry-leading radiology information system, formerly IDX Imagecast, in 21 institutions across Intermountain Healthcare's network. When complete, the installation will mark the largest GE centralized PACS installation in the United States.
'This is another great step in our collaboration with Intermountain Healthcare to develop an IT system that simplifies healthcare's current approach to clinical information systems,' explained Tom Riesenberg, general manager of Centricity Imaging Solutions for GE Healthcare. 'By implementing our Centricity Radiology Solution across Intermountain Healthcare's network of hospitals we are working towards ultimately providing all facilities, regardless of where they are located, access to the most comprehensive clinical data.'

GE and Intermountain Healthcare's team members are working together to research and develop significant advances to GE's Centricity software IT platform. The new best-practices based clinical software system will include Intermountain Healthcare's clinical decision-making abilities and will be based on current and emerging open healthcare standards.

GE also intends to provide other Centricity technologies for departments, including computerized physician order entry, across institutions within Intermountain Healthcare's network, which includes 92 clinics/physician offices and 21 hospitals in Utah and Idaho, serving more than 2 million patients. These installations will facilitate the sharing of patient information throughout Intermountain Healthcare's network, over the next five years.

'We are excited by the continuing progress of this collaboration through the implementation of GE's PACS and RIS system across our network,' said Marc Probst, Intermountain Healthcare's chief information officer. 'Through this partnership we are closer to combining the rich clinical data Intermountain Healthcare has collected over the years with GE's clinical IT programs to enable clinicians to capture and learn from embedded protocols.'
