GE Medical Systems has entered the market for clinical information systems with the launch of Integriti at the HIMSS meeting in New Orleans. Integriti is based on a clinical information system developed by SEC, a software firm acquired by GE in November. The first part of Integriti was piloted in 1994 at the University of Michigan Health System, where it is used in the emergency room, intensive care, operating rooms, and related outpatient clinics. SEC installed the system at other Midwestern hospitals as well, but GE plans to roll it out nationally, according to Greg Lucier, president and CEO of GE Medical Systems Information Technologies. The University of Michigan is also looking to expand its implementation with a portal for referring physicians and patients.
