Connect 4 Healthcare System Improvement


The Center for Connected Medicine is dedicated to patient-centered and population healthcare models using Health Information Technology (HIT) solutions

GE Healthcare has joined the Center for Connected Medicine, a global thought leader defining the transformation of healthcare, as a founding partner. Through this collaboration, GE will continue to drive its healthymagination vision for a sustainable healthcare system by helping clinicians achieve excellence in patient care, expand access and reduce costs.

Established in 2009, the Center is dedicated to developing patient-centered and population-health care models using integrated Health Information Technology (HIT) solutions. Showcasing the real-world experience of University of Pittsburgh Medical Center (UPMC), the Center seeks to engage international and domestic health care stakeholders including policy-makers, providers, payers and vendors to promote coordinated care delivery and greater patient accountability – with the goal being systematic and cultural change.

Over the past two years, more than 10,000 visitors from around the world have toured the Pittsburgh, PA-based Center to discuss how best to achieve a more cohesive approach to medicine. The Center for Connected Medicine also provides a forum for visitors to experience firsthand the ways technology developed by the Center’s partners can be integrated to transform and enhance care delivery. GE Healthcare joins four other founding partners—Alcatel-Lucent, IBM, UPMC and Verizon—and ten strategic partners representing multiple members of the HIT community.
