GE Healthcare and Intel Corporation have expanded their sales and marketing agreement for the Intel Health Guide to include the United Kingdom. GE Healthcare already markets the Intel Health Guide in the United States.
The Intel Health Guide is a care management tool designed for health care professionals who manage patients with chronic conditions such as diabetes, hypertension, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and heart failure. GE Healthcare’s capabilities in disease management, and its distribution reach in the healthcare sector in the UK will help drive understanding of the benefits of this innovative technology, which includes patients’ self-monitoring of health status and a direct communications channel to healthcare professionals.
This announcement further expands GE Healthcare’s Home Health business in the United Kingdom.
Both GE and Intel are currently active in patient monitoring and home health, with well-recognized brands and strong sector expertise.
