GE Healthcare provides medical technologies and services to healthcare professionals and their patients in more than 100 countries. It is clear that to GE, “health is wealth”.
The company has identified sustainable healthcare as one of the areas that are crucial both to growing the GE’s business and to contributing to the growth of healthy societies in which GE can operate.
In 2009, GE launched its six-year, USD 6 billion commitment to sustainable health, Healthymagination. Healthymagination focuses on addressing three critical needs:
• bring better healthcare to more people
• improve the quality of healthcare
• reduce healthcare costs.
Among recent Healthymagination achievements GE has joined with a pharmaceutical company to develop technology that could enable better cancer therapies and launched HealthAhead, a global employee wellness and site certification programme.
Much more information, including an annual progress report, can be found at Healthymagination’s website. The website is also a place where anyone can get, share and discuss ideas on how to become healthier. Learn more at www.healthymagination.com.
