New Hyde Park, N.Y.-based ProHealth Care Associates LLP has selected GE Healthcare Centricity EMR, along with the vendor’s RIS and billing IT solutions — Discovery PET/CT and Centricity electronic data interchange (EDI).

In addition, GE claims its EDI Web-based claims management solution will assist in managing claims with proactive monitoring and customized task management, while its Discovery PET/CT system will provide more accurate information to aid physicians in making treatment decisions.
