GE's Centricity PACS is a single-vendor radiology suite that contains all the components of traditional RIS, PACS, virtual reality (VR), 3D, mammography, real-time analytics, and dose monitoring. It offers customers a Web-based graphical user interface (GUI) for 24/7 diagnosis and native mobile access on Apple or Android for interpretation or collaboration. Real-time workflow alerts help improve uptime and productivity.

Other key attributes include real-time work lists; the ability to dictate macros; single desktop access to advanced 3D, mammo, dictation, EMR or RIS; exam-locking to help prevent duplicate reports; Web-based diagnostic image access for referring specialty physicians and radiologists; and native application to Android and iPhone operating systems.

Centricity's Web-based image access provides access to more than 20 advanced clinical applications, including cardiac, oncology, vascular, and neuro; it also provides diagnostic reporting and advanced speech understanding designed to help reduce training time. The PACS also offers an open application programming interface (API) interface with Epic, Cerner, and McKesson EHRs.

Anything that can help integration & usability of these expensive tests is a win to healthcare. Sometimes it amazes me that these tests are so expensive and yet so difficult to interface with. It sounds like better solutions are just on the horizon!
