GE Healthcare, Incheon Free Economic Zone (IFEZ), and gene analysis technology company BRC, have announced a five-year plan to invest in the establishment of the “GE Global Ubiquitous Health Research and Development Center” (GE Global u-Health R&D Center).

The facility will be used for research and development activities related to healthcare IT solutions.

The Korean government and IFEZ see the establishment of the centre as an opportunity to gain advanced clinical knowledge, build professional skills and create jobs through healthcare IT, which is a mainstream green industry. Also, the facilitation of convergence between healthcare technologies and related industries will contribute to the advancement of the domestic IT industry.

In 2007, GE Healthcare established its first Asia EHR (electronic health records) R&D Center in Korea. It is envisioned that its skilled researchers, clinical expertise and technology will become a part of the research and operation of the GE Global u-Health R&D Center.
