Jefferson and GE Partnership to Transform Healthcare Delivery
Consumers, payers, policy makers, and even providers are all demanding the transformation of healthcare to improve affordability, accessibility, patient experience, outcomes, and stakeholder satisfaction. Yet transformation still occurs at a snail’s pace or not at all in many situations. Achieving Jefferson Health’s vision of “reimagining health, education and discovery to create unparalleled value” requires bold moves – and one of those bold moves has been to establish a new relationship with GE Healthcare. The GE-Jefferson relationship was formalized in July 2017 and is designed as an 8-year relationship to enable both short- and long-term change.
This presentation will discuss how this relationship is different than other provider-vendor relationships, and how Jefferson is partnering with GE to facilitate integration, innovation, and healthcare transformation.
- Identify the reasons why transformational change is so critical for health systems.
- Identify the challenges facing traditional manufacturing companies like GE and how they are pursuing their own transformation.
- Describe how principles from industry can be applied to a health care setting to transform healthcare delivery.
- Identify key elements required for successful bold, transformative change.
