Boston Children's Hospital, GE team up on digital joint venture

Boston Children's Hospital and General Electric Healthcare, a subsidiary of General Electric, are teaming up to create a software that will help physicians interpret the brain scans of young patients more accurately, according to The Boston Globe.

The two institutions will develop the system during the next 18 months and market the device to hospitals around the world. The software will allow radiologists at any hospital to compare their patient's brain scan with that of any other patient of the same age, according to the article.

The financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.

The collaboration is part of GE's Health Cloud, a program launching this week that will provide physicians with access to a variety of apps to help sort through medical data.
