GE Healthcare has expanded its partnership with Santa Barbara, Calif.-based InTouch Health to integrate the latter's virtual communication features into Mural, GE Healthcare's new telehealth platform, the companies announced July 9.

Mural, which launched earlier this year, aggregates data from systems and devices to provide clinical decision support and virtual care resources across multiple hospital sectors, including the emergency department and intensive care unit.

Adding InTouch's capabilities to the platform will "provide care teams with the capability of virtual presence and further enhance real-time patient information," according to Vivek Bhatt, CTO of GE Healthcare's clinical care solutions.
