Customer: GE Healthcare
Patient monitoring is undergoing radical change, enabled by e.g. wireless mobile solutions and advanced data analytics.
GE Healthcare reacted to the change by launching a digital health programme in Finland, with VTT acting as a strategic research partner and content and technology producer and supporting GE in the implementation.
- The development of new product concepts begins rapidly.
- GE Healthcare recruited 100 new employees in Finland in the first 12 months of the innovation programme.
- The digital health programme also speeds up the Health Innovation Village and the surrounding health technology ecosystem in Vallila.
GE wants to work with VTT in a close long-term partnership. We have had the opportunity to contribute to VTT’s strategy in the field of health technology and see that it is well aligned with our goals.
