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.

Education is important for this system as you can function with it for years without knowing all the functionalities that can benefit your business.

Pros

Templates make this software very easy to learn quickly. It also makes patient turnover quicker in fast paced clinical environment

Cons

It can be easy for providers to get tunnel vision when utilizing this software. The fast-paced interface is fantastic for getting patients in and out the door but this can make physicians forget about other functions.

May be a good system for a very large practice but it is far too costly and inefficient for small specialty practice

Pros

Good integration with billing software
THere is nothing else good to say
.................................

Cons

High cost
Forms cannot be manipulated or changed without spending additional money
Some basic reports are available but any specific information desired by a specialty practice cost money to formulate

Overall it is a great program. I would say it would be best for a smaller practice.

Pros

It is basic and easy to use. Once you learn the systems it is very easy to navigate. Posting on claims and accounts are VERY easy to do.

Cons

It may be too basic for a company looking for more high-tech features. It does not have all the flash bells and whistles of other newer systems.

Pros

The software was very easy to learn when I started using it. The scheduling was very user friendly and we are able to enter all of the info we need to see our patients.

Cons

The calendar feature was the only thing that I did not like. When switching from one month to the next you keep having to pull the calendar back up. It does not stay up.

They need to streamline training and make the software a little more user friendly. There are too many decision trees and it can be confusing.

Pros

It is adaptable to any specialty and there is a forms customization that can be utilized which is very helpful.

Cons

It is not user friendly and requires extensive training which is difficult to do while you are still trying to give care.

We have had this for more than 4 years. Since the start, it became clear that it had Major, major flaws. GE implied that they were going to fix in the upgrades, but to this date nothing!. They have obvious bugs--where the program asks for a choice, but either choice results in the dame thing. The diagnoses come down from a multiple choice menu, but in some, after you have chosen and migrated to a different screen, it states that it is an un-coded diagnosis. I don't understand why it would be listed in the choices. Pharmacy choices are ridiculous. It will default to out of state pharmacies--simply starting alphabetically. After selecting a new pharmacy, the program defaults to the one you have just replaced. There is no end. The programmer must have had fun adding unneeded mouse clicks. For example, in renewing a prescription, there are 5 more clicks to do before finalizing it. Clicks that do not offer a choice. Basically, just repeating OK, OK,OK, reviewed, OK.

Pros

I can't think of anything that a different program does not do better.

Cons

I don't have time for this.

Centricity is a good overall product to use. It has a solid customer support system, ease and flexibility in report writing and a good flow to the navigation of the overall application. Centricity was the first ever EHR system I'd ever used and within a week I was moving through it very comfortably. I recommend this product for an existing practice that is looking to expand and grow.

Pros

Customer support
Good reporting
Easy navigation

Cons

Not for a start-up practice

Advice to Others

For a mid-ranged price application I recommend this. Your employees will be up and running in no time.

While there is not anything flashy about Centricity it works well as a stand-alone EMR system for a larger practice or Hospital. Functionality is god and very easy to navigate.

Pros

User-Friendly. Quick access to desired features with limited clicks

Cons

Somewhat lacking in the "add-ons" department. Could use a little more color to the display.

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.

Centricity has helped me get through our daily inventory with payments and deposits faster than ever before. The ease to which we can post and work our checks and denials has given us more time to focus and work on projects within our department.

Pros

Centricity has been the easiest transition to a software I've had. With as many interfaces as we have with other systems, Centricity was able to accept all of them and help us keep our staff highly functional and kept up with all of our daily responsibilities.

Cons

The reporting from within Centricity lacks the customizable reporting we were used to with our previous software.
