GE Acquires Dynamic Imaging, Expands IT Offerings

October 11, 2007 - GE Healthcare, a unit of General Electric Company, today announced that it has completed the acquisition of Dynamic Imaging, LLC (“Dynamic Imaging”) and its leading IntegradWeb suite of products, which will allow GE Healthcare to expand its offerings of information technology (IT) products and services across all segments of healthcare - throughout hospital integrated delivery networks (IDNs), community hospitals, outpatient imaging centers, radiology group practices and physician offices.

The Dynamic Imaging Solutions unit will assist healthcare organizations in growing their imaging-based procedural medicine business through dramatically improved provider physician and patient access, streamlined workflow and instantaneous reporting of imaging results to referring physicians, all on a common platform with workflow tools for all settings. Dynamic Imaging offers a Web-based PACS that scales from the needs of physician offices to academic medical centers, providing a portable and consistent end user experience wherever an Internet connection is available.

"Information technology is revolutionizing healthcare throughout the world. Anticipating, optimizing and tailoring the care of our patients in the most rapid, effective and cost-efficient manner requires user-friendly and manageable access to increasingly staggering volumes of data that cut across all medical specialties. The ability of providers and patients to best utilize multimedia healthcare data is essential," said Dr. Nogah Haramati, MD, chief of Radiology at Montefiore Medical Center. "Today's announcement is a giant step forward for healthcare IT. It pairs best practices and best-of-breed systems in the evaluations of patients using cutting edge: functionality, ergonomics, user interfaces and information technology expertise. Patients and healthcare providers world-wide will be the primary beneficiaries."

The acquisition further builds on GE Healthcare’s strategy to combine early diagnosis with information technology to enable a new "early health" model of care focused on earlier diagnosis, pre-symptomatic disease detection and disease prevention.

2-D and 3-D digital breast images

Since the widespread adoption of digital imaging and PACS, referring physicians seldom visit radiology reading rooms, substantially reducing a major source of feedback for radiologists.

A software module to be described April 5 at the SBI/ACR Breast Imaging Symposium has been providing that feedback for radiologists interpreting breast images at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center.
