Baylor Health to extend GE Centricity EMR reach in Texas

The Baylor Health Care System in North Texas plans to extend the reach of its Centricity electronic medical record (EMR) system, supplied by GE Healthcare, across its entire HealthTexas Provider Network (HTPN).

Centricity EMR enables physician office-based care providers and clinical staff to document patient encounters, streamline clinical workflow, and securely exchange clinical data with patients, other providers of care and service providers throughout the healthcare delivery system.

It is expected that, by the time the installation is complete, Centricity EMR will help Baylor physicians manage more than 1.3 million patient visits each year.

GE Healthcare and HTPN are currently engaged on several initiatives to prepare HTPN for the achievement of meaningful use incentives established in the HITECH Act of the American Recovery and Reimbursement Act of 2009.
