GE Healthcare (NYSE:GE) announced today that it launched the Edison HealthLink computing technology for healthcare providers.
Edison HealthLink is designed specifically to allow clinicians to collect, analyze and act upon critical data closer to its source, offering 10 applications, such as TrueFidelity image reconstruction, Mural virtual care and CT smart subscription, and giving providers another entry point into the Edison ecosystem, according to a news release.
Through the operation of medical devices that connect to Edison HealthLink, health systems are able to receive advanced software updates without requiring new equipment, extending the availability of existing assets.
The system runs the Edison Health Services software stack that offers HIPAA-compliant data aggregation, connectivity, advanced visualization, plus AI and non-AI algorithm orchestration.
“COVID-19 has accelerated industry-wide trends with implications for the future of care delivery. It’s time to apply these trends and use them to modernize the current health system infrastructure,” GE Healthcare chief digital officer Amit Phadnis said in the release. “As more care delivery becomes virtual and as more healthcare data moves to the cloud, technologies like Edison HealthLink provide a bridge, allowing devices to operate on-premise, at the edge and in the cloud.”
