eMedApps partners with GE Healthcare to offer a comprehensive business continuity solution to Centricity™ Electronic Medical Record (EMR) customers.

SCHAUMBURG, IL – April 5, 2017 – Centricity™ Electronic Medical Record (EMR) users can now take advantage of CareFinity, an endorsed business continuity solution. eMedApps’ partnership with GE Healthcare will provide customers with an efficient and innovative contingency solution that allows clinicians, schedulers, and administrative staff to securely access stored patient information from any device – including mobile devices – whether their EMR is available or not. The versatile, browser-based application delivers all the data, images, results, notes and documents needed and allows users to document visits without resorting to paper.

“The vision of the Centricity Partner Program is to offer our customers dependable, vetted solutions that complement the Centricity EMR,” said Neeti Gupta, Director of Independent Software Vendor Marketing Programs at GE Healthcare Digital. “With eMedApps’ CareFinity 3 solution our customers can continue to access the patient data that is critical to providing quality care during short-term EMR and health IT system outages.”

Healthcare organizations can face EMR outages for numerous reasons, including planned maintenance, hardware or network failures, and power failures. It is critical that healthcare providers have continued access to patient data during these outages.

“eMedApps is excited to work with GE Healthcare to offer Centricity EMR users this dependable business continuity solution,” said Joseph Cernik, Vice President of Business Development at eMedApps. “Complete and up-to-date patient information is a critical component to quality patient care, and we have made it our mission to make sure that access to this data is not interrupted.”
Interested Centricity EMR customers may contact eMedApps directly or visit them in their booth at the upcoming Centricity LIVE event.
