Over the years the HIMSS Annual Conference & Exhibition has attracted some of the industry’s largest health IT educational program creators, professionals, decision makers and thought leaders. It is now recognized as the premier forum to attend as solution providers gather in Orlando, Florida during 23-27 February to showcase the latest software advances.
GE Healthcare is no exception. As one of the innovators behind technology transforming health and healthcare, the company will be there with news of its latest software advances and highlighting its Industrial Internet investment through innovations made possible by GE’s Predix platform and several new product launches.
In the current climate, a host of companies are reacting to the requirements arising with the introduction of the Accountable Care Act and an age of mass digitization in healthcare. Providers are looking for companies that have the knowledge and finance solutions to obtain clinical depth and software breadth in order to meet these challenges. In an environment where the focus is moving from volume-based to value-based healthcare, healthcare systems and providers are having to contend with splintered care delivery networks and silos of disconnected data.
The landscape of this change has been recognized and addressed by GE Healthcare for some time now spearheaded by its $2 billion Industrial Internet investment that is committed to achieving breakthrough levels of efficiency and productivity. This will be achieved by integrating easy-to-translate systems that transform how caregivers work and provide patient care in the future.
At HIMSS 2014, GE Healthcare is showcasing advances spanning integrated care and clinical workflow and include news of two financial management solutions designed to help customers address the financial challenges raised by bundled payments and the shift of risk from payers to providers.
In addition, GE Healthcare will reveal details of an enhanced partnership with Caradigm for Population Health Management to enable improved preventative care and help eliminate waste by stratifying patient populations and then identifying the most high-risk patients for proactive treatment.*
Products and solutions for the clinical workflow will also be revealed at HIMSS 2014. These solutions aim to address vendor neutral medical content management and the issues of incompatibility between different software and hardware solutions.†
Powered by the new PredixTM platform, a new care delivery management solution is also expected to make an appearance at HIMSS 2014.†† The solution may help perioperative managers measure and improve key metrics like on-time starts, patient throughput and reduced supply costs.**
The Predix software platform has been especially designed for the demands of the Industrial Internet. Predix enables asset and operations to operate at their most efficient by running industrial-scale analytics and connect machines, data, and people.
With these new solutions, GE Healthcare is helping empowered providers transform information into insights, gaining a comprehensive and complete perspective to help improve their operations and enhance their patient care approach.
