BARRINGTON, Ill.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--After a five month search in which it evaluated all the leading vendors, Molina Healthcare chose Centricity* Practice Solution (CPS) from GE Healthcare as its primary platform for electronic medical records and practice management. However, the staff at Molina Healthcare is confident it won’t take nearly as long after implementation for Molina to realize the benefits.
“Centricity Practice Solution has the flexible tools that will help Molina enhance the quality of care and practice profitability,” said Sonny Patel, Molina’s Director of Technology Projects and Clinic Operations. “We are confident that GE will be there to support us today – and tomorrow.”
Molina, a 16-state healthcare system serving 4.3 million Medicare and Medicaid patients and families, selected CPS 9.5 based on the tool’s strong clinical and financial management integration and its comprehensive functionality for practice administration and electronic medical records (EMR) .
Since it operates a multistate managed care plan, Molina required a tool that offers well-developed integration capabilities with external systems. Centricity Practice Solution provides powerful interoperability and offers software to support private, secure communication with patients and outside medical practices involved in a patient’s care. This ability to interface with patients and labs, along with its ePrescribing tools, played a significant role in Molina’s decision.
“We are thrilled that Molina Healthcare selected Centricity Practice Solution to be the IT backbone for their EMR and Practice Management across their entire system,” said Jim Corrigan, Vice President and General Manager of GE Healthcare IT, Americas.
CPS is certified by both CCHIT and NCQA, providing Molina and their patients with the assurance that the system meets recognized quality standards and is eligible for federal Meaningful Use incentives.
