A robust, patient-centric vendor neutral archive (VNA) solution for seamless image and document consolidation and access

Centricity Clinical Archive (CCA)1 is an open architecture vendor-neutral solution that unifies and intelligently manages patient data, images and enterprise content. Built on IHE – XDS and DICOM-compliant industry standards, CCA enables seamless connectivity among disparate systems across multiple archive systems, specialties and facilities. 

CCA leverages the power of Centricity Universal Viewer ZFP client, to enable rapid sharing and access to patient’s longitudinal history from anywhere2 whenever it is needed. 

With the Media Manager mobile application, CCA simplifies ingestion and documentation of visible light images for burn assessment, wound care, pressure ulcers and skin-donor assessment.

Transform departmental silos into powerful, information sharing engines

For care providers who need a unified view of patient images and documents to inform critical treatment decisions, Centricity Clinical Archive Solution helps them save time and lower costs. It’s a standards-based solution that intelligently weaves together a longitudinal view of patient data from different vendor systems and expands access through a web-based, zero footprint viewer. As a result, Centricity Clinical Archive delivers clinical insight at the point of care helping reduce unnecessary tests and optimize total cost of ownership.

Unlike vendor neutral archives that only support departmental DICOM consolidation, Centricity Clinical Archive helps clinicians streamline enterprise-level and communitywide collaboration through a breadth of interoperability standards, including IHE-XDS, HL7, and EMPI. Its native tag morphing capability can help CIOs overcome limitations and variances of multi-vendor PACS systems to optimize image sharing and workflows. It also offers a choice of virtual server deployment to save data center space, enables disaster recovery by connecting to cloud storage, and enhances reliability with standardized configurations.

1 Centricity Clinical Archive includes the following product components: Centricity Enterprise Archive, Centricity Universal Viewer ZFP, XDS Registry, Centricity Clinical Gateway, NextGate MatchMetrix EMPI, and Lexmark PACS Scan™.

Case Study - Creating a better model for medical image management in Canada
Southwestern Ontario Diagnostic Imaging Network relies on Centricity Clinical Archive to connect 62 hospitals with disparate PACS & RIS systems, resulting in reduced storage costs and data duplication and increased productivity and enhanced quality of care. Learn more in this case study.

Case Study - Enterprise Imaging in the Large Enterprise
Today, progressive imaging departments manage images from myriad modalities— simplifying the viewing of and centralizing image management across complex health systems to broaden enterprise access and help exams get reimbursed. A large university medical center well-known as an imaging pioneer is using GE Healthcare’s Centricity™ PACS and Centricity Clinical Archive solution1 to optimize imaging across the enterprise. 

Case Study - Hospital-wide access to patient documents helps to drive efficiency with Centricity™ Clinical Archive solution1
Improved clinician productivity at the Antwerp University Hospital in Belgium. After deploying an XDS-compliant CCA, clinicians reported approximately 30% improvement in productivity as a result of greater visibility to patient data produced across different departments. Moving from silos of data to a single, unified source and gaining secure access in the enterprise resulted in more effective collaboration between care professionals and sped up cross-functional workflows including administering and accounting.

Case Study - Sharing Clinical Images to Help Improve Quality of Care
Healthcare providers face a variety of clinical and financial challenges. The cost of care is increasing, patients are looking for easy access to their health records, and patient data and images are typically siloed and not easily accessible to clinicians. Quality of care suffers when healthcare professionals cannot easily capture, access, and share patient information.
