GE Healthcare To Invest $1 Bn
To address evolving healthcare needs, including the use of analytics in improving health outcomes, GE Healthcare plans to invest more than $1 billion over five years in the development of its educational offerings to reach more than two million healthcare professionals worldwide by 2020, helping them improve healthcare from within through enhanced training programs and solutions for physicians, radiologists, technologists, midwives, nurses, biomedical engineers and other professonals. Solutions will be geared to meet local needs and will include new clinical, product application, technical and leadership training and education. As part of this training commitment, GE Healthcare will continue to work with healthcare providers to build strategic programs that may also include technology, finance and consultancy services to help improve healthcare delivery.
With the investment, GE Healthcare will provide on-the-ground, online and remote training mostly as part of a commercial partnership with customers to help optimize health providers' skills for real-life clinical situations. Examples of implementation could include peer-to-peer training provided by key opinion leaders among customers; virtual video conference training; clinical product training by certified clinical applications specialists; biomedical training supervised by technical instructors; and leadership training managed by certified GE professionals and consultants. GE Healthcare expects its new education solutions to upskill healthcare professionals worldwide and drive further growth in the industry.
