Macon, Ga.-based Navicent Health announced this week it will work with GE Healthcare to make system-wide improvements to its care delivery model.
Navicent, which operates a large teaching hospital in central Georgia, plans to take advantage of GE Healthcare's advanced analytics to improve patient care and operations as well as promote growth. The partnership is expected to last for six years and generate $150 million in savings, according to a news release.
This is the sixth risk-sharing, multi-year contract GE Healthcare has embarked on over two years that involves health systems.
GE Healthcare will build operations to help Navicent improve patient flow and create analytics so clinicians can access more information and make decisions in "real-time," the news release said.
GE Healthcare and Navicent also plan to adjust their goals for the partnership as industry trends and community needs arise.
"This is not a quick fix, rather a steady and strategic approach to developing sustainable solutions that will enhance our entire system allowing us to deliver higher-quality care at a lower, and more consistent, cost," said Dr. Ninfa Saunders, president and CEO of Navicent Health, in the release.
