GE Healthcare (Barrington, Ill.) announced the release of Centricity Advance-Mobile, a native Apple iPad application, designed for primary care physicians in small practices. With Centricity Advance - Mobile, clinicians utilizing GE Healthcare’s Centricity Advance, a complete web-based EMR and practice management system, won’t be tethered to their desktops. As Centricity Advance customers, they can walk with their iPad wherever they like while continuing to interact with the patient and the patient record.

Centricity Advance-Mobile phases out cumbersome paper note-taking when physicians are away from their computers, allowing them to enter information in a way to which they’re accustomed. It also provides true anytime, anywhere access to the information they need, formatted for the device they’re viewing it on. Centricity Advance - Mobile unleashes the power of mobility and turns the iPad into a fully untethered digital “notepad” that the clinician can use when completing summary notes.

Centricity Advance-Mobile frees clinicians from cords and breaks down perceived communication barriers around EMR. The mobile application enables immediate response to patient requests, such as prescription refills and emailed questions, and allows a physician to attend to tasks even when away from the office. In addition, physicians can now use their iPad to order, digitally sign and route a new prescription to a pharmacy.
