OSF HealthCare Collaborates with GE HealthCare and Pointcore to Improve Patients Care

OSF HealthCare has collaborated with GE HealthCare and Pointcore to increase clinical and operational efficiencies, standardize care delivery models and improve patient outcomes.

The alliance will focus on improving precision care in oncology by identifying clinical and technology opportunities that can help accelerate integrated cancer care at OSF HealthCare. The parties will work together to develop pathways that deliver precise, personalised care to patients through customised solutions in radiation oncology and theranostics for diseases such as prostate cancer.

The agreements are based on two key pillars and will deepen the joint focus of OSF HealthCare, Pointcore and GE HealthCare on:

  • A foundational alliance that includes investments in new technology systems, digital tools and resources, services and support across a variety of care settings, including nuclear medicine, oncology and radiology. A new intersection between Pointcore and GE HealthCare that will drive healthcare technology management services and provide excellence in the management of OSF’s medical equipment across the service.
  • A new approach to investing in innovation, using advanced analytics to streamline capital management and allow OSF HealthCare to reinvest in patient care. As part of this approach, OSF HealthCare will be one of the first health systems in the United States to implement GE HealthCare’s new version of Digital Expert Access with Remote Scanning, the first FDA 510(k)-cleared device to enable remote patient scanning on GE HealthCare magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) systems. This new technology can bridge multiple sites, users and devices remotely, allowing technologists to share knowledge and make decisions quickly, reducing wait times and interruptions in patient care.

This strategic collaboration means that we can ensure our Mission Partners (employees) have the right technology at the right place at the right time, transforming the way we deliver care to over one million patients each year,” said Jim Mormann, CEO of OSF HealthCare Integrated Solutions and Pointcore.
