As a global leader in healthcare, we are guided by the understanding that there is a patient at the center of everything we do. By pioneering new solutions that improve and expand care around the world, we are dedicated to creating the ideal experience for all patients, young and old.

Creating the future of healthcare

We harness the power of clinical information by providing clinicians and healthcare providers with real-time information all in one place – across modalities, time zones and technologies – for more confident decision-making and efficient workflow.

 

We focus on delivering the most technologically advanced products and solutions, as we help clinicians diagnose, treat and manage many of today’s most prevalent diseases.

 

We expand access to care by promoting the adoption of new mobile and remote technologies and developing new protocols that can lead to more efficient and productive healthcare systems.

 

These commitments are the driving force behind our research and investment in promising new approaches to radiology, cardiology, oncology, decision support, home health, respiratory and other critical areas.
