A developer of surgery information management software may soon join the GE family. GE announced Feb. 11 the signing of a definitive agreement to acquire iPath. The company will provide GE with surgery workflow solutions that will be used to create a totally digital operating room environment. iPath's system will complement GE's clinical information system, Centricity, which can be adapted to provide a paperless patient medical record for the operating room. Together, the two systems could deliver a fully automated workflow solution for clinicians, with scheduling and materials management that support patient care both in and out of surgery. iPath's ORMIS software is installed in more than 240 hospitals.
