• New leadership role oversees GE Healthcare’s IT and Performance Solutions platforms.
• Unique “advisory + technology” view of healthcare industry strengthens GE’s healthymagination commitment to enabling better health through focus on cost, access & quality.

GE Healthcare today announced steps to more effectively bring its world-class technology and domain expertise to bear while strengthening its ability to help its customers solve some of the healthcare industry’s toughest problems - lowering costs while improving access to quality patient care.

Jan De Witte, currently president and CEO of GE Healthcare’s Performance Solutions division, has also been named president and CEO of its Healthcare IT business. De Witte, who reports to GE Healthcare President and CEO John Dineen, succeeds Vishal Wanchoo who was recently named Senior Vice President of Growth Initiatives for GE India. Under De Witte’s leadership these two GE Healthcare businesses will use the knowledge the company has gained over the past 100 years serving the healthcare industry to deliver the right technologies to their respective customers.

John Dineen, president and CEO of GE Healthcare said,“Having a single leader like Jan De Witte lead both businesses sends a visible signal to our customers that GE Healthcare is dedicated to growing its IT and solutions offerings, providing them with a unique partner that can deliver the strategic advice they need with outstanding technology. Jan’s extensive experience with technology across global markets makes him the right fit to lead and develop the growth of these two businesses.”

This move mirrors GE’s $6 billion ‘healthymagination’ strategy to deliver better health, for more people at a better cost. For Healthcare IT and Performance Solutions, healthymagination means finding rigorous, measurable new ways to be more efficient, standardize care, reduce errors, and drive continuous improvement by tapping into, and learning from, the volumes of data that are produced daily in treatment settings. The result can be lower costs, better deployment of critical resources, and a chance to treat more patients. For the patient, it simply means better, safer care.

Healthcare IT, a $1.4 billion segment of GE Healthcare, is a technology driver for GE Healthcare, delivering a broad portfolio of information technology solutions from the physician’s office to the integrated delivery network that support high-quality and cost-effective care through business, clinical, and imaging applications covering settings. Performance Solutions provides the healthcare industry with new ways of organizing, measuring, and managing health care delivery over the full cycle of patient care.

De Witte was named president and CEO of GE Healthcare Performance Solutions in June 2010. He has served in a number of strategic technology and business leadership roles since he joined GE in 1999. He has a diverse background in services, digital business strategy, supply chain, manufacturing, quality and Lean Six Sigma. Previously Jan led GE Healthcare’s $1.2 billion Services business across Europe, the Middle East, Africa and Asia, a role that also oversaw the company’s regional Healthcare IT businesses.

De Witte graduated with the greatest distinction from the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven (Belgium) in with a Master’s of Science Degree in Electro-Mechanical Engineering, and earned his MBA from Harvard Business School.
