GE Healthcare to highlight path-breaking healthymagination technologies at Arab Health 2011
GE Healthcare is yet again sponsoring Arab Health, the second largest healthcare exhibition in the world, where GE will showcase its path-breaking healthymagination initiative. Arab Health 2011 will take place from January 24 to 27 in the UAE at the Dubai International Convention Center. Now in its 36th year, Arab health provides an unrivalled platform for the world’s leading manufacturers, wholesalers and distributors to meet and network with the medical and scientific community from the Middle East and beyond.
According to estimates, in the GCC region alone, healthcare costs are expected to grow five-fold from now to US$60 billion by 2025. Demand for overall healthcare is projected to grow 240 per cent in the next 15 years with cardiovascular treatment poised to grow 419 percent. Cardiology will make for 24 percent of the healthcare costs followed by infectious diseases, maternal and perinatal conditions, digestive diseases, genitourinal disorders, cancer and other diseases.
GE Healthcare is focused on its commitment to the Middle East region in addressing the twin challenge of rising healthcare costs and growing incidence of lifestyle diseases. When GE launched its US$6 billion healthymagination initiative last year, its long-term goals were to increase access, improve quality and efficiency and lower costs of healthcare. At Arab Health 2011, GE Healthcare will highlight a variety of technologies including Lullaby Warmer (high-quality yet affordable technology for healthcare establishments to keep the baby warmer) and the Vscan (pocket-size ultra-sound technology), developed to support this strategy and help improve patient care worldwide.
