GE Healthcare announced its collaboration with Boston Scientific, a global medical device manufacturer, to provide end-to-end interventional cardiac care solutions in India. The collaboration will enable easier access to treatment and is intended to improve heart care for patients.
This is a first-of-its-kind collaboration between the two MedTech companies in India, both with strong interventional cardiology portfolios. The advanced medical devices and capabilities from Boston Scientific, coupled with GE Healthcare’s strong medical imaging systems like cardiac catherization lab and related software, support diagnostics through treatment and monitoring of the cardiac patient-care pathway.
The companies will work to collectively support the training and education of healthcare professionals and raise consumer awareness about the impact of vascular imaging advancements within cardiac catherization procedures, thus enabling better patient outcomes. Earlier this year, GE Healthcare signed a similar partnership with Boston Scientific in Southeast Asia which also offers combined cardiology solutions to customers including in training and education.
