Hartford HealthCare and GE Healthcare have entered into a seven-year collaboration to launch new solutions to provide patients with quicker and better care in New England, US.
Over the next seven years, the companies will work together to improve patient wait times and overall experience, including efficient access to diagnosis, testing and treatment; lower cost of care; and access to better technology.
"Through this collaboration, we continue to build a world-class healthcare system for the people we have the privilege to serve," said Elliot Joseph, chief executive officer of Hartford HealthCare.
"We are redesigning the way we organize and deliver care. We are focused on ensuring patients get the care they need, where they need it, and to coordinate that care so it is faster, safer and, ultimately, more affordable."
John Flannery, president and CEO of GE Healthcare, commented: "To truly transform the patient experience at this level requires us to completely rethink how and where we can improve efficiencies. We believe that this strategic, outcomes-based agreement will focus on the shared priorities to enhance clinical quality, patient experience and operational efficiency."
President and COO of Hartford HealthCare Jeffrey Flaks, added: "We are incredibly excited by the possibilities of what our organizations can do together. Getting patients to the right level of care quickly – and ensuring that critical medical information is readily available – will help us in our mission to heal and save lives across our state.
"This is part of Hartford HealthCare’s vision to create a new standard of care for the people of Connecticut. It will put GE’s expertise and technology to its best use as we serve our patients and families."
