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.

Supported Operating System(s):
Windows Vista , Windows XP , HP-UX , AIX

    It will be great that Centricity can be use for MPR & Volume Rendering. The new AW Workstation has these features, but slow performance and not easy to maintain.

    Pros

    Centricity has features like PACS for query and retrieve, and also has a lot of features like PACS. Easy to manage since it is under Microsoft Windows Operating System.

    Cons

    Centricity don't have the feature for Multi Planar Reconstruction and Volume Rendering, only able to view 2D images not 3D images.

    Overall experience is great! GE Centricity works the way it was designed to and have no complaints really.

    Pros

    I like how I am able to move from screen to screen and have multiple screens open at one time. I have worked with GE Centricity for 3 years now and have no complaints. I am able to upload to the patients charts and all of our clinicals are in GE

    Cons

    I do not like how sometimes GE Centricity will freeze. It may be because we are cloud based and have to work online. But honestly have no complaints about Centricity

    There are many other software options available that work better and cost much less. I would not recommend this software to anyone.

    Pros

    I started using Millbrook Paradigm and then GE bought it and changed it to Centricity Practice Solution. Most everything one could think of being in a EHR is present and the software has been around for many years.

    Cons

    GE has a cost for every little thing that is done or added to the software and it is VERY expensive and time-consuming to have in one's office. There are many glitches, freezes, and other problems that never stop happening. I had this software in usage for over ten years and wish I had quit using it a long time ago.

    EVERY time we upgrade versions there is a new issue that crops up. EVERY. TIME. This latest , to version 13.2 of CPS completely broke our practice management components ability to do reports using the Analytics feature, which frankly was the best feature of the EMR or PM side. Now it does not work and has not for almost 6 months. We just a few months ago got a email from GE acknowledging that they recognize this actually is a known issue with the newest version of the SQL database server. Apparently they had no idea it wouldnt work with the newst version and we were literally the first in the ocuntry to find that out. Add to that GE just sold them to a private equity firm, so who knows what the future holds. We have been on Centricity for a long time (over 6 years) and it has been very consistent. Consistently letting me down.

    Pros

    WHEN It works, it can do a lot and is very customizable with various 3rd party form design software

    Cons

    It is so freaking buggy. my colleagues are always complaining to me about it. I am a doctor and every month at our board I get to listen to all my practice partners complain about the latest weird GE bug.

    Pros

    Allowed for easy access to schedule and ease of use when opening up and navigating patient's charts.

    Cons

    While this software served our office for approximately 10 years, when looking at competitors we had to let it go. The biggest gripe that our office has it that when wanting to have a representative come in to pitch their updated product, they were a no show. Not great customer service!

    Pros

    Ease of use, staff who are not tech savvy had a very easy time learning the basics and in just a month were into the more sophisticated functions

    Cons

    Pricey - but based on its functionality, is worth it. The upfront costs were higher than anticipated. The support is a little strange that for a small practice, you are limited to one or 2 vendors.

    From what I understand GE Healthcare EMR will be bought out by another company. I'm hoping that this will help fund change.

    Pros

    I have found that GE offers a lot of education at your fingertips. You just need to sign up for a SSO user login and there you can find different resources to help you use the product. You can tailor your own forms within the program with the use of a different software.

    Cons

    There are too many add-ons that can become pricey. There are many 3rd party vendors that you can use within centricity for additional cost. That can be frustrating. I would prefer to pay additional money monthly for a one stop shopping program.

    We enjoy the system and we are glad we purchased to product for our surgical center

    Pros

    Easy to get around in, we are able to train other office personal in an efficient manner, because it is easy to understand. We enjoy the system.

    Cons

    We have to do a lot of training online, since they are out of state, it costs per hour to do that, so the doctor's have minimized my training time because of the cost. I still have lots to learn but have been doing it on my own.

    Definitely a 4.5 out of 5 stars in my book.

    Pros

    If you're in the market for a practice management system that can service small, medium and large size physician groups, look no further. GE Centricity covers every portion of the revenue cycle from scheduling to payment posting. In my opinion the two most relevant Pros are a) ease of use and b) data analytics.

    Cons

    I have only one critique on the system. The process for handling charge corrections is quite outdated.

You can easily prepare reports to track the Accounts cycles. Denial are easy to habdle. And patient information is easy to manage. Filing claim and follow up on time is easy. Interface is so easy that learning is kid's play.

    Cons

    Sometimes software loses connectivity. But if you have a good strength internet connection it is easy to avoid.

    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.

    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.

    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.
