Welcome from GE & webinar 1/24

Welcome from GE Healthcare

We’re so glad you’re part of the GE Health Cloud Innovation Challenge! GE Healthcare is thrilled to sponsor this competition and invite you to show the world how your application can change healthcare.

It’s not news that digital technologies are transforming the medical industry, but the scope of the transformation is remarkable. According to MarketsandMarkets, the global adoption for cloud services in healthcare will grow from $3.73 billion in 2015 to nearly $9.5 billion by 2020.

As a member of the community of healthcare innovators, you’re poised to take advantage of this market growth, and we want to help expand your universe of potential customers through partnerships with GE.

We look forward to collaborating with you to transform the face of digital healthcare!

Jay Burrell
General Manager, Cloud and Cyber Security, GE Healthcare
