Centricity Cardiology Software Benefits

Features

Seamless connectivity for total control

GE Healthcare’s Centricity Cardio Enterprise provides cardiologists a single point of access to unified patient data, images and reports across multiple modalities, with end-to-end configurable workflows in a multi-site, multi-org context.

Building on GE’s expertise in the vendor neutral archive technology (Centricity Enterprise Archive), Centricity Cardio Enterprise delivers storage, display, and analysis for a more complete cardiovascular imaging patient jacket. The solution's web-deployable client allows for flexible access to diagnostic quality images whenever they’re needed, with full system functionality. With workflow automation tools like a web-based scheduling module, inventory management module, and a billing charge capture module, Centricity Cardio Enterprise provides more complete control over your cardiovascular clinical environment.

Key Capabilities

Full remote access – Access from virtually anywhere¹
Using advanced streaming software, Centricity Cardio Enterprise can optimize network bandwidth to deliver higher image quality at the highest speed. This allows cardiologists to perform a 3D left ventricular analysis on an echo image, while reviewing that patient’s prior cath and working on the echo report.

Easy customizability
Centricity Cardio Enterprise lets cardiologists configure the look and feel of the system—including patient and exam lists—based on their unique system log-in, providing a consistent user experience regardless of where they access the system. With our user-defined forms, each physician is in control of configuring their reports to reflect their own individual style and narrative, while preserving the integrity of a relational MS SQL database that allows the querying of clinical data elements on demand.

Multi-modality interoperability
As a standards-dependent and vendor-neutral product, Centricity Cardio Enterprise can interface with every major clinical acquisition device on the market. It allows you to leverage your existing device investment without the need for upgrades and replacements. When paired with Centricity Enterprise Archive, GE Healthcare’s dynamic clinical content storage and management system, Centricity Cardio Enterprise is a powerful solution that can help you optimize and simplify cardiovascular image management.

Infrastructure interoperability
The Centricity Cardio Enterprise solution offers unparalleled interoperability to help to ensure compliance with your IT infrastructure. Using standards such as DICOM, HL7, and IHE, you can share data with your HIS/EMR system, an existing PACS, RIS, your physician portal, billing system, and materials management ordering system. This compatibility with your facility’s hardware, software, and protocols means easier implementation, simpler support, and streamlined adoption.

Easy, more accurate documentation
Centricity Cardio Enterprise allows you to easily, quickly, and more accurately document relevant information at the various stages of the patient care cycle through configurable documentation forms and menus.
