GE Healthcare And Roche Team Up To Build Data-Pooling Service For Hospitals

GE Healthcare and Roche recently announced a long-term partnership that is aimed at developing and marketing a useful database tool for doctors making important clinical decisions.

“Effectively what we’re doing is combining those two data sets. It’s the integration of that data that gives physicians or clinicians at that point much greater insight into the status of patients,” says Kieran Murphy, President & CEO of GE Healthcare. Adds Roland Diggelmann, CEO Roche Diagnostics: “We know how these hospitals operate, we know what they need. Everybody tells us this is what we need.”

This system will combine and synthesize many different patient data sets, including blood pressure, heart rate, respiratory rate, and blood-based in vitro testing results. This, Murphy says, could help hospital staff intervene quicker with more information.
