Labour and Delivery, Special Care Nursery and Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) Software

CentricityTM Perinatal is a clinical information system that integrates documentation and foetal monitoring to help healthcare organisations deliver their best care to every mother and baby. From Labour & Delivery to the Special Care Nursery or NICU, our perinatal software interfaces with multiple devices and systems, including all major EMRs. In an environment where every second counts, it is important to use an established product. Centricity Perinatal is an intuitive system that has been used to deliver over 39 million babies. 

Delivering a new level of workflow interoperability, our add-on module Centricity Perinatal – Connect integrates perinatal information in context with other clinical data—continuously and on one screen. This enables you to see your critical perinatal information including foetal monitoring strips and document in your enterprise EMR all at the same time—helping to make faster, more informed decisions, and enhance your workflow and patient care.

Centricity™ Perinatal Web module enables near real time analysis of the foetal monitor strip via the Web. This technology allows quick access to the foetal strip via a tablet from virtually anywhere the internet is available— when and where you need it. You can view the strip, record a comment, and review annotations, whether inside or outside of the hospital. The module helps you increase your efficiency and optimise communication between caregivers, ultimately helping you to make faster, more informed decisions to enhance patient care. 

Unlike some other maternity solutions which make you trade off ease of use for enterprise EMR integration, Centricity Perinatal – Connect lets you have it all. You get a proven and robust Labour & Delivery software. You get advanced foetal monitoring on a historical time continuum. And you get the ability to document on the foetal monitoring strip with bi-directional data flow to your enterprise EMR.
