GE Healthcare: Transformational Medical Technologies and Services for New Age of Patient Care

 John Flannery, President & CEO
Technology has long been a valued resource in healthcare as an industry. Patients can actually begin to care for themselves – relieve the burden of the delivery system and get a better result. Healthcare technology providers are geared towards contributing higher quality patient care through better management and availability of information. To facilitate world class healthcare services with efficient management tools, GE Healthcare, a unit of General Electric Company extends its expertise in medical diagnostics contributing to the shift in sustainable healthcare systems. Being a part of highly regulated medical device and pharmaceutical industry, GE Healthcare meets the demand for increased access, enhanced quality and more affordable healthcare around the world. “With a broad, technology advanced portfolio, we shine with a wide offering of clinically relevant solutions,” delineates John Flannery, President and CEO, GE Healthcare.

GE provides various services that include medical imaging and information technologies, patient monitoring systems, drug discovery, biopharmaceutical manufacturing technologies and performance solutions services. For instance, the company focuses on the early detection of disease states with a wide range of products that are used in X-ray imaging, CT scanning, MRI and nuclear medicine enabling physicians to gain a complete picture of the patients. This continually redefined electronic management brings in a powerful unified workspace for the radiologists and clinicians that include intelligent tools, advanced visualization and breast imaging. GE’s Healthcare portfolio has stretched across a suite of solutions that reflect a commitment.

“We offer the users with dashboard that extract insights from data to take better decisions on imaging informatics,” explains Flannery. The firm also introduced OnWatch predictive technology to improve patient care by minimizing rescheduling of scans and operations due to unplanned downtime.
“We pioneer advanced medical technology that helps doctors diagnose and treat on a molecular level,” says Flannery.

As a distinguishing feature GE has launched ‘Healthymagination’- a global initiative to provide better healthcare for more people around the globe through innovations that lowers the cost, increases the access and improves the quality of the healthcare.

Headquartered in Marlborough, MA, GE Healthcare streamlines unintended workflow disruptions that impact daily operations and in forge design a bold new treatment paradigm. Monitored with advanced turbine systems and new ecosystems of connected machines, the firm increases the efficiency, minimizes waste, optimizes productivity and drives the people in operating smarter. An automated fault recognition algorithm analyzes and predicts potential issues enabling them to be solved even before they may occur. GE Healthcare enterprise imaging solution serves in connecting patient images and information across devices from anywhere even with peers outside networks and regions. Driving progress in patient care, GE helps in completing tasks with ease and efficiency. At one instance, Sainte Anne Hospital approached GE to access the right level of information to ensure better quality of service, without delays. As the firm focus on client satisfaction and patient safety, GE introduced the scheme of AssetPlus Data to reduce the risk of errors and breakdowns by providing technological changes to medical equipments and appropriate maintenance planning.

GE Healthcare pivots in developing and bringing together pharmaceutical development and production to the diagnostic imaging technology with advanced software applications. GE is targeted to work on integrated manufacturing platform based on single-use technologies. The firm has planned to increase their distribution reach by enhancing their dealer network by addressing some of the greatest health challenges in the society. On a progressive note, “We invite mankind to join us on our journey as we continuously tend to develop innovations focused on reducing costs, increasing access and improving quality around the world,” concludes Flanner.
