GE Marquette Medical Systems has garnered two awards from research firm Frost & Sullivan for its use of market research: the Competitive Strategy Award and the Product Line Strategy Award.

These awards are based on independent research and analysis of companies in the healthcare industry. GE Marquette stood out as a sole-source provider of clinical information systems and devices for patient monitoring and cardiology, and the company has been recognized for forming Web-based alliances to keep it competitive, according to Mahpara Qureshi, Frost & Sullivan industry analyst.

GE Marquette’s alliances with companies that produce technology complementary to its own products include Draeger, Critikon, NEC Medical Systems, CardioDynamics, Novametrix, Micro Medical, Data Critical, and Aspect Medical Systems. Wisconsin-based GE Marquette’s products focus on diagnostic cardiology, patient monitoring, and clinical information systems.

Recently, GE Marquette signed a three-year contract with Consorta Catholic Resource Partners to provide patient monitoring systems and services to its 900 hospitals and clinics around the world.

Under this agreement, GE Marquette will be a preferred provider of patient monitoring solutions, including the Solar family of advanced vital sign monitoring systems, the Eagle model configured monitors, and the portable Dash monitor, which supports continuous patient monitoring during an ambulance or aircraft ride.
