Providence Health & Services’ Oregon-based health system is upgrading to U.K.-based

GE Healthcare’s Centricity EMR platform in all seven of its hospitals and clinics.

According to the company, the Centricity EMR software provides workflow-based interoperability by creating a single record of problems, allergies, and medications across disparate applications. By embedding standards-based protocols, Centricity EMR aggregates and translates information from disparate systems to form a complete patient picture, it touts.

Providence’s Oregon-based facilities, as well as outside local clinicians using Centricity EMR, will continue to collect, share and access patient data through a standards-based health information exchange that can be used across the system.

Providence Health & Services is a not-for-profit health system serving communities in Alaska, Washington, Montana, Oregon and California. The system includes 27 hospitals, more than 35 non-acute facilities, physician clinics, a health plan, a liberal arts university, a high school, approximately 49,000 employees and numerous other health, housing and educational services.
