Through the partnership, the companies will co-develop, pilot and deploy healthcare solutions focused on optimizing patient imaging experiences and smoothing out patient care transitions.
“This is an innovative, collaborative, outcomes-driven relationship focused on developing new, transformational ways of caring for patients at Mission Health and nationwide. The challenges we face at Mission are like so many health systems across the nation. Our goal is to improve our margin, drive system-wide efficiency and deliver an exceptional, transparent experience for every patient, family and team member. The solutions that we develop and cost savings we achieve with GE will be scalable and applicable to other similar healthcare systems. This is truly exciting for Mission and the industry,” Mission Health CEO Dr. Ronald Paulus said in a press release.
The companies will collaborate to streamline the patient imaging process, including selecting the right imaging modality, time frame and location across the system, and will leverage predictive modeling and analytics to streamline the entire patient care experience.
“To make this level of partnership possible, it takes two organizations to think both differently and collaboratively. We are honored to work with Mission Health and strongly believe that this strategic, outcomes-based agreement will ensure alignment and focus on shared priorities. We are passionate about delivering on our commitment while helping to enhance clinical quality, patient experience and operational efficiency,” GE Healthcare CEO John Flannery said in prepared remarks.
Focal points for the collaboration will include improving radiology screenings, transforming bedside monitoring practices and systems and asset optimization for radiology and biomedical services, the companies said.
