Two years ago we launched healthymagination as a $6 billion game changer - a strategy to revolutionize the world’s healthcare by focusing on improving quality, access and affordability.
Healthymagination applies GE scale to transform healthcare by incubating disruptive and scalable solutions. Healthymagination is committed to helping real people and achieving real results. We’ve touched over 500 million lives and we’re only just getting started. We can transform how we treat disease. We can empower communities to get healthier. We can build a health care system that helps people live better lives. Working together, we can help cure the world. Technology, people and partnerships—this is how change happens. This is how GE Works.
