Business operations improving in Georgia thanks to healthcare

The state of Georgia is enjoying a new kind of partnership that is improving business operations in one of the largest health care systems in the state. Philips Healthcare is now going to be providing all of the equipment needed by the Georgia Regents Health System. The contract signed gives Philips the rights to provide everything from minor electrical supplies to multi-million dollar medical equipment. This new contract gives Philips access to the entirety of business operations within the hospital system.

This partnership is designed to improve the function of the hospital and the business side of the hospital operations. Additionally, it will eliminate the need to purchase equipment from several providers. Philips will have full access to the Georgia Regents Health System hospital business operations, from business meetings to equipment decisions.

The new health care laws mean that hospitals will need to make patients less sick on a faster scale. Should they be able to provide this level of health care faster, the hospital will owe Philips a bonus for the contribution to business operations. While the health care laws can make hospital operations more complicated, it could possibly encourage more partnerships similar to the one between Philips and the hospital.

Should this relationship help save money within the health care system, it could mean lower health care costs and savings could trickle down to the customers. Regulators will be monitoring the business operations between the two companies and will ensure that the partnership continues to be beneficial. It is assumed that it will be beneficial long term to all parties.
