GE HealthCare to Collaborate with OSF HealthCare

The collaboration aims to help increase clinical and operational efficiencies.

By HFT Staff


GE HealthCare announced a collaboration with OSF HealthCare, an integrated health system caring for patients throughout Illinois and Michigan, and Pointcore, Inc., a healthcare management and non-clinical shared services company, to help increase clinical and operational efficiencies, standardize care delivery models and improve patient outcomes across OSF HealthCare.

The agreements stand on two key pillars and will deepen OSF HealthCare, Pointcore and GE HealthCare’s combined focus on: 

  • A foundational alliance that includes investment in new technology systems, digital tools and resources, service and support across various care areas including nuclear medicine, oncology and radiology. 
  • A new approach to investment in innovation that uses advanced analytics to streamline capital management and allow OSF HealthCare to reinvest in care for patients. As a part of this approach, OSF HealthCare will be one of the first healthcare systems in the United States to implement GE HealthCare’s new version of Digital Expert Access with remote scanning, the first FDA 510(k)-cleared device to enable remote patient scanning on GE HealthCare Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) devices. This new technology can bridge multiple locations, users, and devices remotely and allow technologists to share knowledge and make decisions quickly, reducing wait times and care disruption for patients.
