GE Creating Cardiology EMRs

GE Healthcare of Waukesha, Wis. says it’s planning to bring electrocardiogram data to more EMRs than ever before.

The company’s Diagnostic Cardiology business has begun to work with EMR vendors to create bridges and enable compatibility. The solution won’t be tied to any single device but will, instead, be compatible with each of GE’s contracted vendors, the company says.

In addition to its compatibility with the GE Healthcare Centricity EMR solution, the GE Healthcare Diagnostic Cardiology business has entered into development agreements with a variety of other vendors, namely:

· e-MDs Inc.

· eClinical works


· McKesson Provider Technologies

· Medinotes Corporation

· Medtuity Inc.



Unfortunately GE still insists on storing all of the NI cardiology data in their proprietary "Hilltop" format which will require said interfaces to incorporate chewing gum and baling wire. If they would just follow the industry to store their data in vendor-neutral formats such as DICOM, then perhaps this industry dinosaur (did someone say TRAM module?) wouldn't get permafrost.
