GE Centricity RIS-IC Web-based radiology information solution takes an enterprise-wide, patient-centric view of workflow, helping dissolve departmental boundaries and deliver fast, secure access to information.
Radiology departments are under pressure to do more with less. They have to meet demands for an increased number of medical imaging exams, such as CT scans, MRIs, and x-rays, with fewer resources and declining reimbursements. To stay competitive, they need to drive greater productivity while enhancing the patient experience.
Delivering fast, secure access to information, Centricity RIS-IC helps to streamline the clinical and administrative workflow in today’s hectic Radiology department through the application of state-of-the-art technology. Centricity RIS-IC can help shorten the revenue cycle, reduce lost charges and denials, prevent under payments and optimize performance across the enterprise.
With VMware virtualization, GE can help hospitals and imaging centers address a key concern: cost control. Customers can quickly deploy Centricity RIS-IC and reduce their IT footprint, which lowers space, power, and cooling requirements. In addition to a 50% cost savings per month on cooling and electricity, GE expects customers may be able to reduce their hardware investment by up to 50%.
VMware virtualization technology also provides the high availability that is critical in clinical settings. When a patient in the emergency room needs a CT scan, the supporting software must be working. By running GE Centricity RIS-IC on the VMware platform, healthcare providers gain the benefits of an easy-to-manage, highly available infrastructure to support their mission-critical imaging system.
