The first of its kind collaboration between the two global medtech companies in India, will offer advanced medical devices and capabilities from
Scientific, coupled with GE Healthcare’s strong medical imaging systems like cardiac catherization lab and related software, support diagnostics through treatment and monitoring of the cardiac patient-care pathway.
GE Healthcare said the collaboration will enable easier access to treatment and is intended to improve heart care for patients, thereby addressing the disease burden prevailing in the country.
The companies will also work collectively support the training and education of healthcare professionals and raise consumer awareness about the impact of vascular imaging advancements within cardiac catherization procedures, thus enabling better patient outcomes. Earlier this year, GE Healthcare signed a similar partnership with Boston Scientific in Southeast Asia which also offers combined cardiology solutions to customers including in training and education.
“End-to-end cardiac care centres, with a focus on best-in-class patient outcomes are fundamental in bridging the industry gap and managing cardiac burden in India,” said Dr. Shravan Subramanyam, MD, of Wipro GE Healthcare.
“It’s essential to work with clinicians and healthcare providers to understand the challenges they face in care delivery, and to provide tailored solutions to help them manage those obstacles and better serve their patients,” said Manoj Madhavan, MD of Boston Scientific in India.
“This collaboration is focused on addressing such challenges by providing healthcare professionals expanded access to the latest solutions and technologies to advance patient care.”
