GE to integrate electrocardiogram data with EMRs
GE Healthcare’s Diagnostic Cardiology business is working with EMR vendors to bring electrocardiogram data to more EMRs.  In addition to its compatibility with the GE Healthcare Centricity EMR solution, the GE Healthcare Diagnostic Cardiology business has entered into development agreements with a variety of other vendors, namely:
  • e-MDs
  • eClinical works
  • McKesson Provider Technologies
  • Medinotes
  • Medtuity
These new alliances will focus on bringing seamless workflow and data access solutions to the GE Healthcare Diagnostic Cardiology solution-equipped physician’s office, the company said.

“Complete compatibility is an important step toward GE Healthcare’s vision of early health,” said Matthias Weber, MD, GE Healthcare’s vice president of Global Diagnostic Cardiology.  “If we can bring our industry leading Marquette 12SL algorithms to more physicians’offices, physicians will be able to provide better patient care and may be able to catch symptoms before they become disease.”
