GE Healthcare announces SaaS Electronic Medical Records Management

http://newsroom.gehealthcare.com/

GE Health Care is rolling out a new, cloud-based platform that makes it easier for physicians with small practices to maintain and keep track of the electronic medical records of their patients. The new SAAS offering is part of GE’s Centricity offering.

Introducing Centricity Advance
Colonnades Family Medicine is running on Centricity Advance, a web-based EMR solution launched today by GE Healthcare and specifically designed for the smaller physician practice.

Unlike most clinical and financial management solutions, Centricity Advance is a web-based service that costs less than a standard client-server software deployment and is maintained and supported with little or no strain on the healthcare provider’s resources, freeing up more time for patient care.

Ideal as a Web-Based Service
The fact that Centricity Advance was designed from the ground up as a web service is significant. Instead of simply providing web-based gateway into a standard EMR application, the Centricity Advance is created with anywhere/anytime access in mind, resulting in an intuitive and efficient interface without sacrificing functionality. Since system management is centralized as part of the Centricity Advance service, small practices don’t have to worry about data protection, updates, equipment failures and other typically stressful responsibilities of user-driven IT management.

Another key feature of Centricity Advance is the Patient Self-Service Portal, which connects patients to their care. By using their own secure password to log in, patients can communicate privately with their doctor and view their own information such as statements, prescriptions and lab results. Patients can also request and confirm appointments, request prescription refills and get automatic reminders for immunizations and lab tests.

Twittering Clinical Trials!

Healthcare IT start-up TrialX has launched an application that allows the 4 million to 6 million (and growing) Twitter users to find clinical trials. Users can query (tweet) TrialX using the keywords .

In about a minute, says TrialX, you’ll receive a reply tweet with a tinyurl link to the TrialX page containing matching trials.

So not to let go off my information junkie attitude and eagerness to learn new  things. I also started my own twitter at  http://twitter.com/clinicalSearch I have also started following the twitters from Jae Chung of GoBalto he is very active in Linkedin where I found him firsty. And also twitter of Patient Recruitment Company MediciGlobal and ClinicalTrialApp twitter from iPhoneClinial Trials

I agree twiiter application are helpful in AERS reporting along with other tools . I love see how they can add value as standalone tools
