There's interesting food for thought in Intel and GE's 50/50 joint venture focused on developing management solutions for people in independent and assisted living situations, as well as those with chronic diseases. The new company will combine assets of Intel's digital health group and GE Healthcare's home health division and build on the healthcare alliance they announced in April 2009. The companies will contribute existing products and concepts for remote patient monitoring and assistive technologies, such as the Intel Health Guide, Intel Reader and GE Healthcare's QuietCare sensor technology.

Biggest benefit will be with acquisitions

Hi Charles,

Because none of the three existing products has been particularly successful, the real promise here is separation from the parents enough to enable acquisition of some of the small (and more innovative) companies in their space.
My analysis of the joint venture is posted here.
