GE Healthcare and Preventice Solutions Collaborate to Extend the Heart Station Beyond the Hospital
New alliance provides seamless connection between leading provider of hospital ECG products, including MUSE, and leader of ambulatory ECG services
BOSTON - May 9, 2018 - GE Healthcare (NYSE:GE) is working with Preventice Solutions to provide customers with an extension of the hospital heart station and to expand GE Healthcare ECG services into the home, creating a more holistic solution for monitoring ambulatory ECG patients.
The collaboration offers a unified solution to providing in-hospital ECG, long-term Holter, cardiac Event Monitoring (CEM) & Mobile Cardiac telemetry (MCT) results into a single portal utilizing the GE Healthcare MUSE cardiac management system.
According to U.S. News & World Reports, 24 out of 25 top U.S. cardiac hospitals use MUSE. By integrating with MUSE, data from home-based patients will be made available to clinicians on the same clinical workspace they use every day.
“GE Healthcare is working with Preventice Solutions to drive both better clinical outcomes for patients and greater financial results for customers,” said GE Healthcare Diagnostic Cardiology General Manager Ashutosh Banerjee. “Our relationship holds the power to create a consistent patient experience and a high standard of clinical care, providing hospital-quality ECG algorithms to ECGs acquired outside the hospital. This alliance will help standardize operations management and workflow for health care providers.”
"We are excited to partner with GE Healthcare and to join forces on additional areas of mutual strategic interest,” said Preventice Solutions Chief Executive Officer Jon Otterstatter. “Our collaboration will create an integrated, longitudinal view of the patient experience and a unique ability to empower clinicians with timely, data-driven decisions in an actionable, seamless way.”
