The FINANCIAL -- GE Healthcare
IT, a division of General Electric Company, will be exhibiting its
latest range of IT solutions at this year’s meeting of the United
Kingdom Radiology Congress (UKRC).
The Congress runs from 25 to 27 June at the Manchester Central Convention Centre and GE’s display is on stand number 74.
GE Healthcare IT, which has operations around the globe and currently provides PACS to a large proportion of NHS Trusts, specialises in providing a full range of highly innovative IT solutions which helps clinicians to make more informed, faster diagnoses and achieve gains in productivity.
At UKRC, GE Healthcare IT will demonstrate how it is helping to fulfill the needs of its customers in the NHS, in particular supporting the aim of providing patients with access to high quality healthcare in a cost effective and efficient way.
Said Olivier Croly, General Manager GE Healthcare IT, UK & Ireland: “The face of healthcare is changing and we are entering a time of ‘collaborative care’ which is a patient-driven, outcomes-driven method of delivering healthcare. Information Technology (IT) helps make this possible by linking together information from across the healthcare delivery system (in-patient, ambulatory, home-based), to generate new insights that contribute to improved patient outcomes.”
“In partnership with our UK customers, GE Healthcare IT is constantly working to introduce new innovations to meet their evolving requirements. The range of solutions on show at UKRC illustrates the breadth and depth of what we have to offer to help clinicians deliver better quality care for more patients at a lower cost. This is particularly important given the NHS drive to achieve efficiency savings.”
A key theme running through GE Healthcare IT’s latest innovations is accessibility – clinicians want to be able to access all types of patient data at the touch of a button from anywhere at any time. According to the General Electric Company, in particular, they want to improve work flow and be able to share information and collaborate with other specialists to make clinical decisions more quickly.
Continued Mr. Croly, “The more you delay a clinical decision, the bigger the impact on the outcome for the patient. Our IT solutions have been developed to provide a single web-based user interface which gives clinicians access to the right, quality information precisely when they need it, so they can diagnose and treat in record time.”
