It is certainly beginning to look like the Ipad is becoming a working hardware partner in the medical records business as GE is the latest to announce Centricity Advanced and Centricity Practice Solutions coming to an Ipad soon. Back in January another medical records program also announced their Ipad application. The applications will become available later this year and were demonstrated at the HIMSS convention in Orlando, Florida this year.
ORLANDO – GE Healthcare showcased the extension of its healthcare IT portfolio to mobile devices and tablet computing at HIMSS11 earlier this week. Its portfolio of EMRs for physician practices, including Centricity Advance and Centricity Practice Solution, is now available for use on the iPad and iPhone. Officials say GE Healthcare is focused on shifting the architecture of its proven software solutions to web technologies, which lighten the application footprint and bring clinicians the benefits of anytime, anywhere access to critical patient data. Centricity Advance and Centricity Practice Solution are part of GE Healthcare’s portfolio of integrated EMR, practice management and patient portal solutions for physicians. In a separate announcement at HIMSS11, GE Healthcare announced the launch of Centricity Practice Solution version 10, which features integrated quality reporting dashboards that are included in the mobile access offering.
