Everywhere around the world, three things are common to the healthcare challenge: the need for quality care, the need to increase access to care and a mandate for affordable care. GE’s approach to improving health connects our innovative technology, our employees, our partners and the GE Foundation to help build sustainable health systems and make healthcare more accessible and equitable, less costly and reactive, and more focused on patient outcomes.
GE Healthcare is focused on becoming the leader in outcome-based solutions for the healthcare industry and meeting the demand for increased access, enhanced quality and more affordable healthcare around the world. From medical imaging, software and IT, patient monitoring, and diagnostics to drug discovery, biopharmaceutical manufacturing technologies, and performance improvement solutions, GE Healthcare helps medical professionals deliver great healthcare to their patients.
In 2015, the UN General Assembly adopted “Transforming Our World: the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.” This ambitious agenda outlines 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and GE Healthcare is focused on sustainable healthcare, training, education and R&D, giving communities holistic healthcare solutions. Our commitments are aligned with SDG 3: “Ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all ages.”
Through our Sustainable Healthcare Solutions business, we’re partnering with government policy makers, NGOs, physicians, clinicians and healthcare providers across the developing world to create health systems that are on a par with the best in the world. By developing disruptive technologies and affordable, relevant solutions, our vision is to improve access to high-quality, affordable healthcare around the world. In addition to creating affordable technologies that provide world-class results, we train caregivers in local communities, enabling them to use those technologies to better the lives of people in the farthest reaches of the world.
