GE Healthcare's Centricity Group Management 4.0 is designed to address patient collection needs through simplified and streamlined workflows, as well as reduce staff effort by correcting and reposting claims through new transaction management capabilities.
Office managers and IT personnel find several Centricity features appealing, including the system's ability to improve revenue cycle performance through enhanced connectivity with Centricity EDI Clearinghouse for electronic data interchange; a patient portal that provides secure Web access to pre-arrival information, scheduling, and other key components; a HIPAA-ready strategy that allows for private, secure information exchange with referring providers; and access to Web-based information, including referrals and eligibility checks, which makes front desk staff more efficient in complying with managed care requirements. The system also features automated alerts that provide accurate demographic data at the point of check in and intuitive workflow for increased efficiency, including patient-focused principles, advanced collections, and quick-access document imaging. Clinical connectivity allows for integration with other healthcare information systems and sharing of common data with Centricity Electronic Medical Record.
