GE Healthcare EMR Integration
Although GE Healthcare’s EMR software is designed to integrate health records into a healthcare provider’s business systems and website in accordance with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), it does not contain a built-in system to do so. Centricity requires a third-party platform in order to carry out this integration, which makes records available to patients, insurance companies and authorized medical staff efficiently and securely.
Although GE Healthcare began phasing out its hospital EMR software, it is currently in use around the country and will continue to be used in clinics and practices focusing on ambulatory care. integration through Clarity Connect offers a bridge through which the providers may take advantage of the incentives provided through the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act of 2099 (HITECH) by offering a patient-accessible website.
