East Orange General Hospital Selects New EMR Solution

GE Healthcare's Centricity Enterprise

Feb 16, 2010 — East Orange General Hospital, in East Orange, N.J., purchased a new hospital-based electronic medical record (EMR) offering in an effort to reduce cost and enhance patient care.

The recently signed agreement brings the full capability of the GE Centricity Enterprise, including a CCHIT-certified inpatient EMR as well as administrative, departmental and revenue cycle solutions, to the 211-bed facility and its outpatient departments. The products will be implemented under GE’s Digital Day One offering for rapid implementation. The solution includes preconfigured clinical templates for best practices in clinical workflows, developed in collaboration with leading hospitals across the country.

Centricity Enterprise will be delivered remotely from GE’s data center under an applications service provider (ASP) model that provides the benefits of a predictable cost for IT while minimizing capital investments and internal resources. Through the plan, East Orange General Hospital will begin the implementation of the integrated line of Centricity solutions immediately, as they work to achieve meaningful use, with the goal of obtaining federal stimulus funds that are available to hospitals and physician offices in 2011.
