Pros: The Centricity software is really a good product but it can be frustrating at times. There are often lots of bugs with each release. This probably happens because this EMR can be customized with lots of 3rd party forms and applications and GE most likely does very little testing. We are a Citrix environment and there is sometimes significant lag through both the fat client and the citrix thin client. Support can at times be sketchy but since it has recently been sold I hope that the product and the support are both improved

Cons: Software can be very buggy and can often run slowly for end users. This is also not a cheap software and is much more beneficial in a larger practice, it's cost prohibitive for smaller clinics.

Overall: The EMR is highly customizable with 3rd party applications and custom forms. There are often lots of minor bugs that eventually get fixed but not quickly.

Pros: My favorite thing about centricity is that it is quite basic and easy to use and easy to teach to others

Cons: Apparently it is not User-friendly for networking Our facility bought a secondary program called Cerner because we wanted the hospital to be able to communicate throughout, not just in the women's pavilion. So ultimately we have to double chart.

Overall: Overall I enjoyed centricity because of its ears and clear fetal monitoring tracings and ability to charge directly on the tracing.

Review of GE Centricity Universal Viewer 6.0

1 / 5
Features & Functionality
Likelihood to Recommend: 3.0/10 Not

Likely

Pros: I can see images. Radiologists seem to like it......

Cons: A new embedded "feature" in the Universal Viewer makes it impossible to unselect the initial study selected in the study list. Once in the patient folder you can't unselect this study so all subsequent studies need to be compared to this. Apparently this was done so that dictating radiologists won't get confused and dictate on the wrong study. Unfortunately this makes it very cumbersome for practicing physicians - like orthopaedic surgeons - who need to look at xrays, MRIs and CT scans when someone visits the office. This makes the viewing format/page layout very cumbersome and user unfriendly especially if that person does not have a viewing station with multiple display screens. Also, there is no way to print the report to file (in, say, PDF format) so that you can import it into your EHR system. The printed report does not have the patient's name/ID info on it - just the interpretation. Other systems like Intelliviewer let you do this. Lastly, unless you get IT support to help you contstanly need to have some sort of "MIV." file downloaded. PITA

Recommendations to other buyers: Make sure it works for community using it - not just the reading radiologists.

Pros: It is very detailed and thorough. You can do a lot with it and it is very versatile. We were able to manage multiple patients at once with it as well.

Cons: It took me a long time to figure out how to use all the features. It can be a bit complicated to start out with. It is also more on the pricey side for software and is probably better suited for large businesses/clinics.

Pros: The best thing about this product is that it does not require any software installs and is easily upgradable. It has many features for a zero footprint viewer and is constantly being improved by GE.

Cons: It uses HTML5, meaning it will work great on any of the modern browsers. Not all of our customers use modern browsers.

Recommendations to other buyers: If you are going to purchase this, I would recommend installing a 2nd test VM ZFP server as well. This makes upgrading very easy. Just upgrade the test server and then switch IP, Computer Name, and transfer ssl cert and your are ready to go. Very little downtime.

Pros: CentricityTM PACS with Universal Viewer and medQ RIS is one of the fastest systems at getting images to the screen and has good, learning hanging protocols. It also helps to speed up the radiologist's ability to read cases by taking away the wait time for image load, providing good tools for measurements, and presenting images in hanging protocols in the way that the radiologist last viewed that type of case.

Cons: Many products require specific versions of Internet Explorer. I understand this is due to regulatory issues with certification. The Universal Viewer with zero footprint does a lot to alleviate this issue.

Recommendations to other buyers: Look for a product that is reliable and secure, provides the images quickly to the radiologist, interfaces well with other systems (meaningful use), and is easy to use. GE IntegradWeb and Centricity PACS meet these needs exceptionally well!

Pros: The software is straight forward which helps eliminate some mistakes by users. The navigation to the right and top the the screen is easy to use and access.

Cons: While the software is straight forward, it seems archaic the majority of time. It doesn't allow even simple changes to scheduled appointments such as time or length. It also doesn't have a integrated system for charting.

Overall: None, if I had my choice I would work with Epic again.

Pros: If you are looking for an EMR that can do literally anything, you can almost guarantee that feature is available here. Solid and feature rich.

Cons: Slow to learn, hard to navigate, and clearly build by programmers for programmers as opposed to designed for layman use. Had I not had a programming background, many of the "shortcuts" would have seemed nonsensical. Certainly not the prettiest system I have ever seen either.

Pros: A lot of the note entering process can be satisfactorily automated. A powerful piece of software with a full suite of options.

Cons: Multiple notes cannot be open at once. The UI is frustrating to use at times, requiring you to swap between windows to simply edit the note. Entering and editing quick texts is very difficult, and the maximum character limit on quick texts is limiting.

I used GE in the past at med school and it always worked great.

Comments: It keeps the radiologists happy and that's always a positive, plus it loads quickly (relatively at least), but that seems to be the extent to which its favored around here. It has issues playing nicely with others, doesn't have some functionalities we'd like and customer service can be lackluster.

Pros: Loads quickly

Cons: Cumbersome, doesn't integrate with our EHR well, hard for outside specialists to pull up studies
