At the 2010 annual meeting of the Society for Imaging Informatics in Medicine (SIIM), GE Healthcare is delivering today’s innovations and engaging in tomorrow’s trends. The company’s technology exhibition spanning the Centricity* Imaging portfolio includes everything from truly integrated RIS/PACS, to automated diagnostic reporting, to a peek at the next big things to leap from their sketchpads into our world.

Visionary solutions, today.
GE Healthcare is committed to solutions that unify imaging IT – integrating multiple applications via an open, web-based approach; aggregating clinical information to a single patient view; and connecting local and remote imaging workflow seamlessly to all clinical stakeholders. This bold vision of “One desktop, One patient, One community” is the driving force behind the products and services presently offered and being developed by GE Healthcare. Central to this vision is the well-documented growth projection, and continuous improvement focus of data-aggregating, timesaving dashboards. “Decide to Thrive: Operational Dashboards Key to Radiology in an Era of Healthcare Reform” is GE Healthcare IT SVP and Global GM Don Woodlock’s look at where the market is heading and how operational dashboards could help.

“What we did was explore what the market has now and project how healthcare reform will impact both the products and the players,” said Woodlock. “Then we spoke with some key thought leaders about where they see things heading and they all concluded the same thing. Operational dashboards will shape the future of the field.” GE is showcasing its work-in-progress contribution in its booth this week.

Organizations already using such tools point to a broad range of benefits. Trident Medical Center in Charleston, S.C. is a part of the HCA Inc. network and is testing a suite of tools designed by GE Healthcare. Director of Imaging Jodi Barteet and staff use a real-time dashboard to monitor imaging procedures and proactively prevent delays. A large-screen monitor shows the status of each pending exam against a target turnaround time.

“We have it color-coded, so that the patient indicators turn a different color when they get close to that turnaround time,” said Barteet. “If they’ve been waiting 30 minutes, they turn yellow. If they’ve been waiting 45 minutes, they turn red. So at any given time, our staff can see at a glance when each procedure was ordered and how long it’s taking for the exam to be done, and act accordingly.”

“You want to be able to take the pulse of your organization,” observed James Whitfill, Chief Information Officer at Scottsdale (Ariz.) Medical Imaging. “You don’t want to wait for the next quarterly report to come out and say, ‘Oh, no – we have a problem!’ You want to know about issues in a timely manner so that you can be more nimble.”

Integration Made Easy.
With the ever-changing demands and dynamics of outpatient imaging, GE Healthcare has focused attention on the specific needs of outpatient imaging centers. Imaging Centers are unique businesses that operate in very competitive environments and require IT systems that can help streamline operations, improve customer service and drive revenue. They require a completely integrated revenue cycle management/RIS/PACS solution specifically designed for their needs. The Centricity RIS/PACS-IW Solution delivers a full-featured, web-based enterprise application that serves the specific needs of the outpatient imaging center. It provides each organization the ability to complete the patient care cycle in a more streamlined, reproducible manner that makes collections and billing not an adjunct, but a central part of the process.

Reporting with Precision.
GE is also showcasing the strengths of its diagnostic reporting solution that leverages advanced speech understanding across its RIS and PACS portfolios. Woodlock will speak to Centricity Precision Reporting’s features and its future in relation to current market trends, in a SIIM-sanctioned learning track and vendor tie-in session (Learning Track #5 – Automated Reporting Systems- Friday, June 4, 3:30-5pm). The evolutionary solution weds efficient workflow with a sophisticated speech-understanding engine to capture patient data throughout the radiology reporting and image archiving processes.

Symbiosis Supplied.
For GE Healthcare IT and its imaging customers, the conference week began Tuesday with the convening of the GE Healthcare Centricity Imaging User Summit. The day featured best-practice-sharing opportunities, roundtable discussions with GE leadership and product teams in addition to educational sessions all aimed at helping attendees make an immediate impact on improving workflow and productivity within their organizations. Three breakout user groups met on Wednesday to round out the latest demonstration of GE’s unparalleled customer commitment.

“At SIIM, we have a unique opportunity to gain from and to give to our customer base while truly showcasing the strengths of our business,” said Woodlock. “We look forward to a week of thorough engagement and plan to demonstrate how we’ll continue delivering on the promise of ‘One desktop, One patient, One community’ for all.”
