14 Feb GE Healthcare system to be put in 21 Intermountain Healthcare locations
GE Healthcare and Intermountain Healthcare announced a contract to put GE’s Centricity system, a combined picture archiving communications system (PACS) solution and radiology information system (RIS), in 21 institutions across Intermountain Healthcare’s network.
When complete, the installation will mark the largest GE centralized PACS installation in the United States. The announcement was made during the 2006 Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) Annual Conference & Exhibition in San Diego.
As part of the partnership announced in February 2005, GE and Intermountain Healthcare’s team members are working together to research and develop advances to GE’s Centricity software IT platform.
GE also intends to provide other Centricity technologies over the next five years, including computerized physician order entry (CPOE), across institutions within Intermountain Healthcare’s network, which includes 92 clinics and physician offices and 21 hospitals in Utah and Idaho, serving more than 2 million patients.
