Tampa General Hospital partners with GE Healthcare on high-tech command center

Tampa (Fla.) General Hospital is advancing care coordination through its new artificial intelligence-based command center in partnership with GE Healthcare.

The hospital carved out a 9,000-square foot space for the center, which will deploy predictive analytics to help improve patients' and physicians' experience and outcomes. It will open in 2019.

Powered by GE's Wall of Analytics, the center will combine human intelligence with AI to review data and make recommendations that could reduce delays in care delivery, predict risk and manage staff workload to drive more efficient hospital operations.  

"We want to leverage this system to improve efficiency and shorten the time patients are in the hospital by better managing their care," said John Couris, president and CEO of TGH. "This technology will help to reach our goal of providing coordinated patient care after they leave the hospital. We are excited to be working with GE on this project. We believe in GE."

TGH is the third hospital to deploy a GE Healthcare command center, following Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore and Humber River Hospital in Toronto.
