GE Centricity Practice Solution


 

Centricity® Practice Solution is an integrated system for clinical and financial management in medical organizations. The system offers a comprehensive suite of functionality for practice administration and electronic medical records (EMR). Because GE Healthcare has such a broad focus on systems for the entire continuum of healthcare services, Centricity software has a well-developed set of integrations with external systems throughout the healthcare community. The program also integrates with a wide range of medical devices, medical imaging systems and other GE Healthcare products.

Centricity EHRs are designed to offer powerful reporting on clinical outcomes. These reports are critical for benchmarking a practice to its peers nationally. Users of Centricity are better prepared to participate in pay for performance medicine programs as a result.

Centricity solutions offer particularly powerful interoperability. The system offers Clinical Messenger to support communication with patients and other practices involved in a patient’s care. An interface engine supports the integration of the program with third-party systems to share lab reports, billing data, clinical notes and related data.

Centricity has achieved ONC-ATCB 2011/2012 certification, which will enable meaningful users to qualify for federal EHR stimulus funds. The system is also CCHIT Certified, a testament to its broad and deep functionality.

We are an FQHC and have been using the Logician/GE Centricity product since 1996. We are currently using Centricity Practice Solution.

Pros

Centricity Practice Solution is user friendly. The greatest selling point for us has been the ability to customize forms to meet the needs of our users. Customization in turn has given us the ability to extract data for internal, state and federal reporting.

Cons

The cost of user licenses is expensive. The product currently does not work with newer browsers and occasionally runs into problems with Windows updates. Bug fixes are not always addressed in a timely manner but there have been considerable improvements with customer support since 1996.

We have used GE Centricity for 11 years now. The biggest advantage has been the customizable templates which works well for individual practices and specialty practices. When we first signed on, GE staff helped with the customization, but since then one of our practitioners, who programs for a hobby, has been able to develop several new forms and adapted forms for our use. Customer service has been spotty at best, but the user's group has been very helpful. The stability of the platform has been variable lately. The Smart Search function for finding diagnoses and diagnosis codes has never been very helpful. The third party vendor for medication interactions does a very poor job, using outdated information that requires time-consuming added steps in prescribing.

Pros

Customizability

Cons

Diagnosis search, medication interactions

Advice to Others

If you like the idea of developing your own templates to match your workflow, this is the product for you.

We have been live on Centricity Practice Solution at our pediatric practice since 2007 and were on Millbrook Paradigm practice management software (which became the practice management component of CPS) for years prior to that. The system is very powerful and has met the needs of our pediatric practice and allowed us to become NCQA Level 3 certified as a patient-centered medical home.

Pros

Integrated scheduling, billing, EMR. We have also integrated check-in with Phreesia, reminder calls with CallPointe, provider-ordered electronic lab ordering with labs returning into our system with Liason EMR-Link, and have a workflow to use CHADIS with our patients. Additionally, we use secure messaging and patient portal and have integrated with our state's immunization registry. The ability to modify forms to fit with changing practice needs is extremely useful.

Cons

Would be nice to have a smartphone-based interface.

Advice to Others

Our practice has been very pleased with this system and I heartily recommend it.

At the time my practice purchased this software it seemed like a good system, but when it came to using it on a daily basis we realized it was very time-consuming and not all that user-friendly.

Pros

Had a lot of bells and whistles

Cons

Not very user-friendly

Advice to Others

Sorry, I didn't really like this software. It's okay, but there are other's out there now that are much easier and faster to use.

We have been incredibly happy with our GE Centricity experience over the last 6 months. As a fresh install on a remotely hosted solution we were apprehensive about its functionality. However, due to the continue support of the GE Centricity team and the power of their architects and engineers, we have an incredible EMR that is highly portable, agnostic to devices, and VERY secure. GE was able to support our creativity and we look forward to a long working relationship with the GE Centricity team and family of products and services!

It seemed evident that this software was not developed by a clinician who had recently used an EHR in practice. There was loads of redundancy and it therefore made patient charting a grueling task. It was ultimately one of the major factors that led to my leaving a previous practice. Bugs were often causing crashes and the frequency of system updates was frustrating especially when improvements never seemed evident.

We started with Logician back in 2005 and now are on CPS 12.1 getting ready to update to 12.2. It has grown with us over the years and its open architecture suits our complex medical needs perfectly

Pros

Ease of use, Ease of building encounter forms and customizing them , interface capabilities are a huge plus for us

Cons

Only down side for us is we have to go down for 2 hours a month to update the medispan data base, which is a nuisance ion a 24/7 operation like ours

Advice to Others

Do your due diligence, know what it is you need and want in your medical record, this one is user friendly and intuitive for your users

We have been on this software almost from day 1. Our first go live was December 1998. We have evolved and worked with this software and feel we provided valuable feedback to the developers to make this product what it is today.

Pros

Relatively intuitive. Easy to set up and learn. Excellent support. Can incorporate third party products without a lot of difficulty.

Cons

Still geared mostly to primary care specialties.

Advice to Others

It is a very good product. The software engineers are constantly working to make the product better, and easier to use. You won't be disappointed.

We have been with CPS since 2005. They continue to enhance and make the product better and easier to use.

Pros

The products are user friendly. The videos and documentation are so much easier to follow after we do a new install. I think overall the communication has definitely been better between CPS and the customer when there is a problem and also when there are new updates to a product.

Cons

My biggest complaint is that CPS still can't work with newer browsers. I can't run most Microsoft updates because it crashes the system. So many of our other applications need Chrome or another newer one.

N/A

We have been a GE centricity EMR customer for over 8 years. I have found the GE software is easy to work on and easy to train new employees and providers. Our providers like the EMR because they can easily customize the appearance to their specific areas. Ie: lab values, bmi, immunzations, etc. I have found GE to be proactive with the healthcare reform and their updates have been well received. The implementation to ICD-10 was seamless and had no negative effect on our clinic.

Pros

Easy to customize, you don't have to have a skilled I.T. department to make changes. We have a clinic with 19 providers and do not have a full-time I.T. employee!

Cons

it's pricey and they do charge fees for add on's such as narcotic e-rx.
