GE, ThoughtWire Partner on Efficiency-Boosting Systems for Hospitals
Friday, July 15, 2016
GE Healthcare and Toronto-based ThoughtWire announced a 5-year partnership to help with digital tool implementation in hospitals and health systems. The two will work together to help simplify and enable real-time decision-making using apps.
“The goal of this collaboration is to help providers deliver seamless patient care,” said Jeff Terry, managing principal at GE Healthcare.
GE has typically worked on apps at the hospital and health system level and ThoughtWire has worked in the workflow space. The partnership aims to develop tech that helps both hospitals and patients by reducing emergency room wait times, lengths of stay in hospitals and the time it takes to get back lab or radiology results, in addition to improving access to complex care.
