GE Healthcare has signed an agreement to provide advanced analytics and reduce process variation for the 21-hospital Adventist Health system in California, Oregon and Hawaii, the health system announced.
The five-year collaboration is designed to maximize the capacity of Adventist’s clinical assets and improve patient care delivery. Adventist said it expects the collaboration to spur growth and reduce costs by more than $100 million over five years.
“We believe this relationship will help us deliver innovative, patient-centric care, with the goal of improving the community’s health experience and making care more accessible and affordable,” said Adventist Health president Bill Wing in a prepared statement.
“Adventist Health leadership saw the long-term advantages of partnering with GE Healthcare to advance their mission and growth strategies, drive change and reshape the future of healthcare for their communities,” added Helen Stewart, managing principal, GE Healthcare Partners.
Adventist Health is the latest health system to enter a long-term, strategic risk-sharing relationship with GE Healthcare over the last two years. Other partners include Jefferson Health and Temple Health (Philadelphia, Penn.), Hartford Healthcare (Hartford, Conn.), Lifespan (Providence, R.I.), Mission Health (Asheville, N.C,), and Navicent Health (Macon, Ga.).
