WE HAVE A VISION*

for Liberating Clinicians to Stop Patient Deterioration

GE Healthcare and Roche Diagnostics are bringing together our experience in the clinical care setting and in the lab to address one of the most significant challenges in healthcare. We envision a digital platform that uses artificial intelligence to empower clinicians to detect patient deterioration before it’s too late. Our first target is sepsis.

More about the problem

Sepsis is the #1 cause of death in hospitals today 1
Sepsis hospitalization costs more than $27B/Year in the United States 2
Up to 80% of sepsis deaths are preventable 3
Up to 49% of clinician time is spent interacting with the EMR. 4
Early indicators of sepsis can often be missed and patient risk status can change rapidly.

An Important Partnership

GE Healthcare & Roche Diagnostics are uniquely positioned to predict deterioration and optimize care:

  • Clinically
  • Operationally
  • Economically

GE Healthcare

Roche is an expert in Biomarkers, Tissue Pathology, Genomics & Sequencing.

Why is the partnership unique?

The companies aim to develop comprehensive digital offerings that provide clinically relevant insights extracted from the integration and analysis of in-vivo and in-vitro data, delivered at the point of care.

GE Healthcare is an expert in Medical Imaging, Patient Monitoring, Digital & Analytics Solutions.

Improving Personalized Healthcare

GE Healthcare and Roche have a common vision for the evolution of precision health, also known as personalized healthcare. That means we aim for more precise treatments for all patients. As designed, the algorithms and solutions we are developing may enable more personal outcomes, at scale.

Our Vision

GE Healthcare and Roche Diagnostics are working together on an answer to the tragedy of patient deaths related to undetected deterioration. An intuitive “digital team member” could provide a continuous clinical view of each patient. As designed, it would synthesize all available vitals and data from many sources, helping make patient information more relevant and easily accessible to clinicians.

Imagine if clinicians could have:

Comprehensive clinical content at your fingertips

Envision a technology that turns vast quantities of data into useful in-context insights, in near real time. All based on continuous updates from the system of record.

Heightened awareness of patient deterioration

Clinicians and care teams would be able to set notification triggers, related to certain changes to clinical status. These could be based on published early warning scores or your facility’s protocol.

Patient Status

Simplified and accelerated patient insights

As designed, Natural Language Processing would recognize the clinician’s train of thought, query the data and quickly present the relevant clinical information. Speaking your language and helping you discern a more precise treatment pathway for each patient.

Patient-centric team collaboration

Chat with a connected care team for specific patient decisioning. As designed, clinicians would be able to freely converse around one shared patient picture, interacting with the platform and building clinical hypotheses.

Ultimately,

our vision is to liberate clinicians and improve collaboration, giving more control and inspiring confidence as you work to identify and treat the deteriorating patient.
