International AID, GE Healthcare Donate to Developing Countries

June 11, 2007 - Global humanitarian healthcare agency International Aid and GE Healthcare announced a strategic partnership dedicated to bringing vital, potentially life-saving medical equipment to communities in developing countries.
Under the terms of the partnership, GE Healthcare will donate previously used anesthesia machines and ventilators to International Aid. Going forward, GE Healthcare and International Aid plan to expand their partnership to cover a variety of GE Healthcare’s medical equipment, including maternal and infant care equipment, patient monitors and ultrasound systems. GE will provide training to International Aid engineering staff to enable International Aid to service the equipment. International Aid will refurbish and distribute the products overseas. International Aid will also provide education and product support to help local hospitals successfully deploy the donated equipment. The new initiative, which combines the complementary resources and expertise of two leaders in their respective fields, is expected to involve the global distribution of more than 200 devices annually.
International Aid will coordinate the transport of GE Healthcare’s donated equipment from the company’s Wisconsin-based facilities to International Aid’s headquarters facility in Spring Lake, MI. There, a dedicated International Aid team will refurbish the equipment for distribution overseas and manage all related, logistical arrangements.

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.
