GE to provide enterprise orders, pharmacy software
GE Healthcare IT has introduced its Centricity Enterprise Orders and Pharmacy for integrated cross-continuum computerized provider order entry (CPOE) and pharmacy systems.

The solution integrates CPOE, pharmacy verification and dispensing and nursing documentation in consolidated workflows across areas of care, according to the company. The application offers customizable order sets and embedded real-time clinical decision support aimed to reduce preventable medical errors and the turn-around time for medication orders.

GE said it partnered with the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn., University of Virginia in Charlottesville and University of California San Francisco in the development of Centricity Enterprise Orders and Pharmacy. The organizations consulted on early prototypes that served to improve and refine the functionality of the CPOE and integrated pharmacy solution. Mayo served as the first pilot site to go-live.
