George Margelis, of Care Innovations, an Intel GE joint venture, introduces us to five demos from companies that strive to improve patient and physician communication both inside and outside the doctor’s office.
Intel-GE Care Innovations™ creates technology-based solutions that give people confidence to live independently, wherever they are. They are a unique joint venture between Intel Corporation and GE, based on a long history of driving innovation, solving hard problems, and creating new markets. In this Deep Dive session, CEO Louis Burns and Director of Clinical Development Julie Cherry will discuss Care Innovations’ vision for healthcare, and their roles in the health transformation occurring today. This overview will set the stage for attendees to interact with four product solutions:
Louis Burns, CEO, Intel-GE CareInnovations
After a long career inside Intel, Louis was the first head of the Intel Digital Health Group in 2005. After a steady and studious approach to the health care market, Louis was behind several product introductions such as the Intel Health Guide and the formation of the Continua Health Alliance and Dossia. Things got
very serious in January 2011 with the creation of the Intel-GE joint venture Care Innovations. Already this year Care Innovations has launched two new solutions for the independent living markets. Here Louis discusses Care Innovations’ work with health plans and show us the new virtual care coordination platform.
Bryce Porter, American Sales Manager, Care Innovations
Care Innovations is the giant of this group, formed last year from a combination of GE Healthcare’s Home Health Division and Intel’s Digital Health Group. Bryce’s role is to make sure that we all know about their four main products–all designed to help seniors and the chronically ill manage their lives better. This demo was given during the “Health 2.0 Tools Across Generations” panel at the San Francisco Health 2.0 conference in 2011.
Employers and insurers have been the sleeping giants of health care. But now they are increasingly active in guiding people they cover in wellness programs and in collaborating on the infrastructure for new delivery models. How are they using Health 2.0 as part of their awakening? This panel was part of the 2011 Health 2.0 conference in San Francisco.
