GE Healthcare Unveils New AI and Digital Technologies and Solutions to Help Solve Healthcare’s Most Pressing Problems
At the Radiological Society of North America’s (RSNA) 2021 Annual Meeting, GE Healthcare unveiled around 60 innovative technology solutions spanning the healthcare spectrum including patient screening, diagnostics, therapy planning, guidance, and monitoring. Amidst a global pandemic and mounting pressure on the industry, the company accelerated innovations underpinned by artificial intelligence (AI) and digital solutions to help transform healthcare delivery, making it easier and more efficient for clinicians and health systems, and more personalized and precise for patients.
The pandemic exposed the fragility of the global healthcare system, creating an urgent need for technology and solutions that help clinicians manage seriously ill COVID-19 patients, advanced diseases – such as cancer and heart disease – a backlog in non-urgent care, and an ageing population, while battling burnout and workforce shortages.
With these circumstances in mind, GE Healthcare is proud to introduce technologies and solutions at #RSNA21 that help healthcare systems:
- Increase efficiency and productivity;
- Reduce clinician burnout;
- Empower clinicians with AI and analytics when, where and how they need it;
- Create a more resilient and sustainable healthcare industry; and
- Increase access to care.
“Our goal is to make healthcare more human by breaking down barriers so clinicians can work at the top of their game, healthcare systems can operate more efficiently, and patients can get the best and most personalized care possible,” said Kieran Murphy, president & CEO, GE Healthcare. “Healthcare is at a turning point and at GE Healthcare we are using our clinical expertise and know-how to deliver innovative technologies and solutions that help solve healthcare’s most pressing problems, advance precision health and improve patient lives.”
Transforming healthcare through imaging technologies and digital offerings
Over the last year and a half, the industry has embraced technological innovation. What was once considered “futuristic” is now fundamental. In an environment where clinical expertise, regulatory know-how and speed matter, GE Healthcare rose to the challenge. Working alongside clinicians and care teams to understand the most pressing needs of radiologists and hospital administrators, the company innovated new solutions, leveraging its healthcare-specific intelligence platform, Edison, to help providers achieve greater efficiency, reduce errors, increase speed to appropriate treatments, and increase access to care.
