GE release decision-making software
A product released this week by GE Healthcare is designed to give physicians information about clinical data and best treatment practices, where and when they need it. The computerized decision support solution, developed with Intermountain Healthcare and drawing on its three decades of clinical informatics experience, is intended for use at the point of care. It promises to help improve patient outcomes and efficiency, ultimately helping to reduce costs, according to GE. Intermountain will begin using the software next month in its clinical practices. GE will unveil the full product at the March 2010 meeting of the Healthcare Information Management and Systems Society. The new technology enables real-time clinical review, capturing vital data from electronic medical records and signaling the physician if the proposed actions vary from accepted practice standards.
