ENP Newswire - 26 February 2014

Release date- 25022014 - ORLANDO, FLORIDA - GE Healthcare (GE: NYSE), a leading provider of healthcare information technology, today announced the release of a new product - Centricity Perioperative 8.0 with High Acuity Analytics - which may help perioperative managers measure and improve key metrics like on-time starts, patient throughput and reduced supply costs.

Centricity Perioperative 8.0 was designed in collaboration with Directors of Surgery and OR Managers and brings key operational data together in an easy-to-read dashboard. This gives them and their perioperative staff a better picture of the day, arming them with predictive insights and information to help optimize patient satisfaction, productivity and costs.

'Centricity Perioperative 8.0 with High Acuity Analytics will help hospital administrators to enhance profitability by monitoring surgery department metrics such as start times,'1 says Mike Jackman, Vice President Specialty Solutions for GE Healthcare IT. 'The actionable and predictive insights are reinforced by visual design standards, making it easy for department managers to use.'

Some existing Centricity Perioperative users are leveraging its current capabilities to make significant improvements to their perioperative environment, helping to increase first-case on-time start rate from 75% to over 90%2, reduce OR turnaround time from 45 minutes to 30 minutes3 and create a fast-track system which, for one customer, resulted in around 50% of patients being able to by-pass the PACU (Post Anesthesia Care Unit).

Jackman explains: 'We see some of our customers making tangible improvements to their productivity and patient satisfaction by using the data from our existing software. With Centricity Perioperative 8.0 with High Acuity Analytics, managers and executives will have an easy-to-use dashboard with key metrics and business intelligence at their fingertips - making it simpler for more customers to drive these kinds of improvements.'

To ensure a world class level of visual design standard, Centricity Perioperative 8.0 with High Acuity Analytics was designed using Predix TM, GE's software platform which harnesses the power of the Industrial Internet to help industrial organizations achieve peak productivity.
