GE Healthcare Extends Leading Web-Based Imaging Solutions to Asia

KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia, Feb. 27 /PRNewswire-Asia/ -- GE Healthcare, a leading provider of information technology, today unveiled a suite of Centricity solutions targeted for hospitals and outpatient imaging centers. Building on Centricity's business process and advanced clinical capabilities, the suite provides the robust Web-based accessibility of IntegradWeb(R) solutions through the acquisition from Dynamic Imaging.

Centricity PACS-IW received the prestigious Best in KLAS - PACS award in the end-of-year Top 20 Best in KLAS Awards-Software and Professional Services Report (December 2008). For nearly three years, Centricity PACS-IW has garnered the best User Satisfaction Composite Rating, making it eleven consecutive quarters at #1! In both cases the rankings reflect current Centricity PACS-IW user opinion on a range of technical, service and business criteria.

"For optimal patient care, images and their related clinical information need to be available anywhere, at anytime," said Don Woodlock, Vice President and General Manager, GE Healthcare Information Technology (IT). "These Web- based solutions will provide hospitals and outpatient imaging centers with streamlined workflow inside and outside of their walls. Better yet, referring physicians throughout the community will be serviced with simple, yet powerful access to imaging results. Everyone benefits."

GE Healthcare's Centricity PACS-IW Solutions for hospitals will offer Web- based portability, instantaneous image reporting and scalable business processes. This single-desktop solution will drive practice efficiency, productivity for the radiologist and immediate results access for the referring physician by fostering a more collaborative approach to patient care and provider partnerships, thus driving better patient care and business practices in an increasingly competitive market. Centricity PACS IW allows the radiologist to view images on any PC with regular monitors but for diagnosis purposes, GE recommends Barco's Coronis 6MP monitors due to their impressive image quality, accuracy offering two screens together with equal luminance, automatic calibration and broad usability.

"Centricity PACS-IW is a one-stop destination that will take medical imaging to new heights of clinical productivity and collaboration without boundaries," said Clarence Wu, VP and Asia Pacific GM, GE Healthcare IT Solutions. "This powerful web-based portable solution, uses state-of-the-art EMC storage technology, connects caregivers across healthcare via internet anytime anywhere, allowing them to see more clearly, know more fully and share more widely."

Also, during HIMSS Asia Pac, GE Healthcare IT will demonstrate our leadership healthcare IT technologies such as Centricity Enterprise global edition, Centricity RIS/PACS and Web Diagnostic @ Booth # 1109.
