GE Healthcare (NYSE:GE) today announced plans for its Edison Digital Health Platform.
The news was part of HIMSS 2022 in Orlando, Florida, where GE Healthcare officials described Edison as a vendor-agnostic hosting and data aggregation platform with an integrated AI engine.
The Edison Digital Health Platform could enable health providers to effectively deploy clinical, workflow, analytics and AI tools, according to GE. The platform accelerates app integration by connecting devices and other data sources into an aggregated clinical data layer.
Open and published interfaces on Edison will support the easy deployment of healthcare providers and third-party developers’ applications into existing workflows. In addition, GE Healthcare plans to integrate and deploy its own apps such as Command Center “tiles” onto the Edison Digital Health Platform.
“Edison Digital Health Platform is being designed to enable healthcare systems to have a single platform on which to host and integrate apps into clinical workflows,” Amit Phadnis, GE Healthcare’s chief digital officer, said in a news release.
“With easy access to the workflow, analytics, and clinical apps specific to care across the care continuum, clinicians will have actionable insights at their fingertips to help better serve their patients.”
