GE partners with PatientKeeper
GE Healthcare has inked an agreement with Brighton, Mass.-based PatientKeeper to market and sell the company's mobile software technology under the name Centricity Physician Office Mobile.
GE said it will standardize all of its mobility technology on PatientKeeper's platform, which enables physicians, nurses and clinicians to simultaneously view vital clinical patient data from a mobile computing device at the point of care, as well as use powerful clinical decision support tools and accurately record charges for medical treatments.
The PatientKeeper Platform provides application interoperability, context management, advanced security features, centralized browser-based administration and reporting capabilities. The platform supports a wide selection of handheld devices (Palm OS and PocketPC) and wireless and non-wireless transports (802.11, Bluetooth, WWAN, network cradles, infrared).
Centricity Mobile will be unveiled and demonstrated at the 2005 HIMSS conference, February 13 - 17, in Dallas, Texas.
