GE expands alliance with Valley Baptist Health System
GE Healthcare and Valley Baptist Health System in Harlingen, Texas, have inked a three-year agreement to adapt GE's management and leadership systems. The agreement also entails the adoption of e-Project software to help track six sigma quality initiatives and other projects throughout the health system.

Within the management and leadership component, GE said its Performance Solutions team will partner with Valley Baptist to create a strong, results-based foundation for the future of adapting and aligning business practices with performance measurement and development strategies. In addition, the implementation of e-Project will give Valley Baptist the ability to track performance improvement efforts and monitor project results through an easily accessible Web-based tool.

The agreement expands the relationship sprung in 2002 between the two organizations, which currently includes the provision of education, consulting, diagnostic imaging technology and services.
