Seems fancy. Works nothing like promised

Pros:
I have been using GE healthcare system’s EMR for quite a while now and I still find it very cumbersome and hard to navigate. It hasn’t worked out that great for me, although I cannot say if it is the same way for people who use it for other services like billing or practice management.

Cons:
Although I use it scarcely but printing is considered an important component in any medical record system, yet the system fails to send out files directly to the printer which can be such a hassle. It takes me so many unnecessary extra steps to fax them personally. then the fax takes forever to arrive. What an obsolete method to get a printout! I have also used eClinicalWorks for a brief period and it allowed me to get prints done with just one click. This system, on the other hand, doesn’t even allow me to print attachments. You have to go through so many steps to copy, paste all the files into the system which is very frustrating.

Highly recommended. Has been a dream to work with

Pros:
GE centricity is the best healthcare software to work with. I have been using it for over a decade now and I have utilized all that it is capable of, and I am thoroughly satisfied with its performance over the years. Centricity is a complete package. It has all the features needed for your EMRs optimal working. it communicates really well with other departments and providers which is helpful. It also handles all the patient documentation, the EMR, and our clearinghouse all in one integrated, well-organized system. The system deals with incoming and outgoing messages with other vendors, leaving little to no space for miscommunication. With other systems, you have to do all that by yourself, put pieces together and keep tabs on related activities.

Cons:
The untimely updates can be a nuisance. They take away some of the features and that disrupts the balance, but only temporarily.

Average service. In desperate need of major upgrades

Pros:
Duplication of patient appointments is relatively easy. This is about the only good thing I can think of. Everything else is a dread. Even listing patient demographics takes forever.

Cons:
We use GE healthcare EHR services in an outpatient chiropractor and physiotherapy clinic. Naturally, we are connected with a local hospital which is also GE centricity client. Even though this should ease things but there are always glitches and unusual activities in the system causing miscommunication through and with the system. The software has been nothing but problematic for years now. It is inherently slow. The system is outdated. I find it unnecessarily repetitive and very inefficient. It takes too many steps to any task completion. Loads of errors everywhere. At this point, the only thing keeping us from switching to a better system is the fact that older staff has grown too accustomed to it, considering some of them have been using it for almost fifteen years.

Amazing for financial management

Pros:
It has been an astonishing expansion to our accounts receivable office with GE Centricity. We have had the capacity to extensively lessen our A/R costs sparing time and finance cost while accelerating the accumulations procedure by 27%.

Cons:
It required a touch of time investment to modify all our maturing accounts into the framework. Be that as it may, I trust this would be the situation with general associations. regardless, it is over a fantastic software.

Average at best. too expensive

Pros:
The system is not too bad but small rigid impracticalities of the interface make it really hard to like anything about the software. The text, for example, is too small. There is no option to enlarge it. None provided within the system, anyway. It is very inconvenient. Leaves you with a constant headache, neck and eyes strain if you have to use it for prolonged periods of time on a regular basis.

Cons:
Again, how is it okay for the software and print font to be microscopic with no enlargement option. The customer service has been of no real help in this case either. And it is all the more disappointing considering GE Healthcare was once considered the pioneers of the health IT business. We had our IT staff try finding a way to rectify it, but no use. There is no in-built spellcheck either so we are mainly just stuck with an overpriced bad choice.

A promising service up till a few years ago

Pros:
I used Centricity for a long time until a few years ago. The system was very simple to get acquainted with, no extensive learning period or training required. You could get your staff to have it set up and running within weeks. I would certainly like to see how much they have advanced over the years. we had this software in a neurology/pain practice a couple of years ago. It was easy to work with since we needed it to be efficient, it rarely disappointed in that regard. There were no complicated features, everything was quite basic and it came at a very reasonable price.

Cons:
The reporting feature was not very flexible and intuitive. It was a hassle having to truly penetrate down into all the little details and relevant patterns.

Amazing software

Pros:
The software is very user-friendly and simple to learn without the need for any extensive training. Navigation around the system is easy as is locating all the needful features. I have been completely satisfied the entirety of the time I have used Centricity. It was the very first EMR software I learned to use in the practice I previously worked with. I wish my current clinic had GE healthcare system as well!

Cons:
I cannot think of any complaints. The system exhibited thoroughly consistent good performance over the years. Our practice did not utilize the EMR which I, later on, got to use in a different practice and it worked great.

Highly satisfactory service. Recommended

Pros:
GE healthcare puts their clients’ needs first and it resonates from their products. The system is simple and well-laid out. Facilitates ease of use. All the features are streamlined to optimize workability. accessing data and making changes is very easy and efficient. I have used this software on a daily basis for years and not once have I faced any major issue with its performance. Their customer support staff has been very helpful.

Cons:
However rare, there have been instances when the system suddenly crashed in the middle of charting and all the input would be lost. Other than that, there have been minor unusual errors while charting nursing notes such that wrong information would be deleted trying to make changes. It does not allow you to delete formerly added false information sometimes. Nothing too problematic though.
