The article focuses on the joint venture between Salt Lake City-based Intermountain Health Care Inc. (IHC) and General Electric Co. to develop a healthcare information technologies system. Intermountain Health Care is a large web of not-for-profit hospitals and clinics that had been run by the Mormon church until 1975. IHC's expertise in medical management was not lost on GE Healthcare, which had been looking for a hands-on partner to help develop a software program that would enhance patient care in hospitals and clinics and accelerate the adoption of electronic health records.
