GE Healthcare at London 2012 Brings Real Time Access to Medical Records to the US Olympic Committee

One

One of the advances at the London Games for the USOC has been the integration of GE Healthcare’s Centricity Practice Solution (CPS). 

During the first week of the London 2012 Olympic Games, Dr. Bill Moreau, Medical Director, Sports Medicine, USA National Olympic Committee and Medical Director for the U.S. Olympic Committee (USOC), took a few minutes out of his busy schedule to talk to GE Healthcare about the innovations aiding his staff in London and also looks ahead to Sochi 2014 Winter Olympic Games.

One of the advances at the London Games for the USOC has been the integration of GE Healthcare’s Centricity Practice Solution (CPS), an electronic medical record keeping system in use to help manage car for the more than 700 athletes competing in London this summer. In the past, the USOC used paper, requiring the shipping of thousands of records to the Games location. Today, however, the USOC is utilizing CPS to enhance efficiency, communication and enable the provider to improve patient care – and it’s certainly making a difference.

Though London 2012 is in full swing, the USOC is already planning for Sochi 2014 – working to ensure even better surveillance of injury and illness within their athlete population.
