With more than 500 doctors serving North Texas, the Baylor Health Care System recently affirmed its plans to extend the reach of its Centricity• EMR solution, supplied by GE Healthcare, across its entire HealthTexas Provider Network.

Since 2006, the HealthTexas Provider Network (HTPN) has been implementing Centricity EMR across its provider community with more than 250 active physicians on the system today. This announcement affirms HTPN’s commitment to implement Centricity EMR for the organization’s remaining 250 physicians. By the time the installation is complete, Centricity EMR will help Baylor physicians manage more than 1.3 million patient visits each year. GE Healthcare and HTPN are currently engaged on several initiatives to prepare HTPN for the achievement of meaningful use incentives established in the HITECH Act of the American Recovery and Reimbursement Act of 2009.

“HTPN has long-been a valued customer and we are extremely pleased to see a continued commitment to Centricity EMR in the HTPN clinical setting,” said Jim Corrigan, Vice President and General Manager of GE Healthcare IT. “We are thrilled to continue to work with a world-class organization like HTPN to deliver patient-centered enhancements through clinical technology.”

Centricity EMR is an electronic medical record (EMR) system that enables physician office-based care providers and clinical staff to effectively document patient encounters, streamline clinical workflow, and securely exchange clinical data with patients, other providers of care and service providers throughout the healthcare delivery system.

Used by thousands of physicians to manage millions of patient records, Centricity EMR is among the most widely-used electronic health records in the world. It empowers healthcare providers to deliver quality care at lower costs and supports the mission of practices in urban, rural, suburban, academic and community health settings across the country.
