GE to provide affordable healthcare in South Africa

12mGE Healthcare has launched Versana Premier in South Africa as part of the Versana ultrasound family, which provides solutions for general practice clinics, physical check-up centres, community health clinics and other facilities offering basic medical care

Part of GE’s new Versana Ultrasound range, affordable care Versana Premier is designed to making healthcare accessible to all. It comes with the local product and clinical training to help healthcare professionals gain comfort and proficiency with the system to enhance patient care.

“As players in South Africa’s healthcare industry, each one of us has a responsibility to lead the way in improving the quality of healthcare and support the country’s vision in achieving Universal Health Coverage (UHC) for all,” said Graham Maritz, general manager, GE Healthcare Southern Africa.

“Through continuous investment in innovation and education, GE Healthcare is dedicated to driving access to affordable healthcare in collaboration with our partners through solutions such as Versana Premier,” Maritz added.

As part of the UN sustainable development goals, UHC means that every person, everywhere, should have access to quality healthcare. South Africa is in the process of introducing an innovative system of healthcare financing through the National Health Insurance (NHI) to ensure that everyone has access to appropriate, efficient and quality health services.
