Multinational meditech company GE HealthCare has topped a US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) list of AI-enabled medical devices.

GE HealthCare is investing in AI and machine learning (ML) to power its precision care offerings, which integrate multiple technologies, including advanced medical imaging, AI and molecular diagnostics.

These solutions are used to tailor diagnoses, treatment, and ongoing monitoring and management for optimal patient outcomes. 

GE HealthCare also topped the list when it was updated by the FDA in 2022 and 2023. 

Healthcare issues GE HealthCare is tackling with AI-enabled tech include data overload, physician burnout, and real-time operational efficiency allowing healthcare professionals to deliver precision care.
