How GE Healthcare is investing in MedTech Innovation

GE Healthcare (NYSE:GE) appears to be taking the “throw it against the wall and see what sticks” approach when it comes to medtech innovation.

GE’s Chicago-based healthcare subsidiary today announced a medtech 3D printing partnership with Formlabs (Somerville, Mass.). GE Healthcare also disclosed its participation in the recent $243 million Series C round of robot-assisted surgery device maker CMR Surgical (Cambridge, U.K.), and the company is investing an undisclosed sum into Decisio Health (Houston) and its clinical surveillance software that provides real-time, consolidated view of patients from multiple systems across a health provider network.

The news comes about a week after GE Healthcare touted the launch of its Edison Developer Program for accelerating the adoption and impact of artificial intelligence applications and developer services across health systems.
