Centricity is a brand of 31 healthcare IT software solutions from GE Healthcare, a division of General Electric. It includes software for independent physician practices, academic medical centers, hospitals and large integrated delivery networks. The various modules perform practice management, revenue management, electronic medical records, medical imaging, and other functions.

Centricity was introduced in 2003 with two applications, Centricity EMR and Centricity Physician Office - Practice Management. The products were acquired by what was then GE Medical Systems in 2002 and 2003 respectively, and released future versions of both products under the Centricity name. Additional products were added to the Centricity brand, such as Centricity Perinatal, Centricity Perioperative.

GE Healthcare acquired IDX Systems in 2006 and re-released it's products under the Centricity brand.

The current version is Centricity Physician Office 2006, launched in December 2006.
