N.H. hospital deploys GE EMR
St. Joseph Hospital (SJH) has expanded its relationship with GE Healthcare through the selection of GE's Centricity EMR.

GE said its Centricity EMR version 9.0 will be rolled out across the provider, replacing several other EMR systems. SJH expects to accelerate the clinical and financial benefits of EMR adoption through the integrated, single-vendor approach, implementing enterprise-wide e-prescribing and accessing the clinical content available through the network of Centricity customers.

In addition, the hospital uses other GE devices including x-ray, CT and MRI systems, and software solutions including Centricity Perinatal for the OB/GYN setting and Centricity DMS for their cardiology workflow. The connectivity between the devices and systems and Centricity EMR will allow the EMR to become a central reference point for patient information, according to the company.

St. Joseph is a community hospital located in Nashua, N.H., with 70 employed physicians across 19 locations practicing family medicine, internal medicine, pediatrics, OB/GYN, pulmonary medicine and oncology.
