Overview

Worldwide healthcare leadership at your service.

Healthcare is transforming. Changes in populations, the prevalence of chronic diseases and improvements in treatments are all reasons why you’re in need of solutions to improve the performance of your healthcare system. Whether private or public, this transition is forcing healthcare leaders to find more innovative ways to reduce costs, improve outcomes and expand access to healthcare.

More often, healthcare leaders are looking to engage private capital, expertise and resources to improve healthcare services. Public sources of funding alone can no longer fund all healthcare infrastructure needs. By harnessing the power of private financing, healthcare leaders are finding success in their healthcare delivery systems and in meeting public policy goals.

Public and Private Partnerships (PPPs) can be leveraged by both private sector entities and public agencies to share resources, skills and assets to accomplish a healthcare objective. Unlike many traditional agreements, PPPs are long-term and risks and investments are mutually shared. The complexities inherent to providing healthcare services, in combination with contracting with the private entities, can seem daunting. GE Healthcare can help you maneuver this process and provide vital insights as you formulate your solution.

Common advantages of Healthcare PPPs:

  • Sharing risks
  • Access to capital funding
  • Facilities completed on-time and budget
  • Well-maintained buildings and equipment
  • Potential to transfer CAPEX to OPEX
  • Project cost savings
  • Efficiency gains in health services delivery
  • Enhanced measurements to ensure delivery of quality and performance standards

Managed Equipment Services

GE is working with governments, health systems, financiers, contractors and other stakeholders to develop Managed Equipment Service (MES) Agreements.

An MES is a strategic service agreement leveraged by Health Systems to:

  • Prevent technology obsolescence
  • Ensure access to technology and comprehensive asset management
  • Transfer from CAPEX to OPEX funding and access custom financial solutions
  • Provide long-term budget and capital planning certainty
  • Enable equipment uptime guarantees and other performance metrics
  • Operationalize and streamline long-term purchasing mechanics and management
  • Provide reassurance to clinical staff that access to the latest clinical capabilities will continue

Many clients have found success in working with GE Healthcare. Our knowledge and expertise as an equipment manufacturer offers your clinical staff a tremendous amount of support in regards to clinical applications and training. We often provide guidance throughout the entire tender process; taking a seat with the planning or operations committee and becoming part of your PPP/MES team.
