GE Healthcare IT
GE Healthcare IT (Booth 5529) is introducing several new and updated products from the Centricity IW product family.
This year, the company will be unveiling a diagnostic reporting solution, Centricity Precision Reporting, which is an embedded application within Centricity RIS-IC that leverages Advanced Speech Understanding technology designed to capture a speaker’s meaning, not just transcribe speech to text. The new solution enables streamlined workflow to improve the ability to turn around a highly accurate, consistent report. Also being featured is Centricity RIS-IC 10.6, offering integrated electronic forms and patient self service registration kiosks.
GE  also is highlighting new developments in Centricity PACS derived from the joint engineering efforts between Dynamic Imaging and GE.  The Centricity PACS Web DX takes the the two worlds by providing radiologists and power clinical users alike the diagnostic and reporting tools via the web, while seamlessly integrating it with existing Centricity PACS infrastructure. This will enable radiologists to perform complex image manipulations to include 3D (MIP/MPR) along with all of the other features of the PACS- IW viewer, change study status directly in the Centricity PACS 3.0 database, while also being assured the appropriate study locking mechanisms are in place.
Further demonstrations are featuring Centricity PACS-IW v3.7.1.1, including the introduction of Centricity PACS-IW oncology workflow, delivering workstation-quality PET/CT performance over the web, the company says. Version also offers new tools for integrated breast imaging workflow, a new “lights off” Study List and Patient Folder, as well as an ergonomic approach to user interface design that improves upon and retires the need for the traditional drag and drop interface. With recent international expansion, GE also is introducing localized PACS-IW character sets supporting Japanese, German, Italian and French.
For web-based Centricity RIS/PACS-IW, GE is introducing version 4.1.1, featuring new business management tools for outpatient imaging centers to operate at maximum profitability. The release includes a new Collector Worklist, Authorization Alerts, DRA Schedules and several management modules for enhanced management of collection agencies, collection letters and payment plans.
