Amsterdam, the Netherlands and Orlando, Florida, USA – Royal Philips (NYSE: PHG, AEX: PHIA), a global leader in health technology, will showcase its latest secure, connected and scalable informatics solutions during the HIMSS22 Global Health Conference & Exhibition. Philips will share its deep clinical and operational expertise to support healthcare providers’ digital transformations and showcase its informatics suite that delivers data-driven actionable insights to advance precision care, support care along each patient’s pathway and improve transitions across care settings. Philips will spotlight how its integrated solutions address some of the most urgent needs that the industry faces today, including staff shortages and cybersecurity threats.
As care settings extend beyond the hospital, with increasing ambulatory and home care, the health IT landscape is growing accordingly. Health systems are seeking ways to improve patient and provider experiences and better deliver care throughout the continuum by connecting data from various points-of-care and disparate systems. Cloud-based, integrated platforms are increasingly recognized for their ability to liberate data from siloes and derive meaningful insights that support workflows enabling precise, proactive and integrated care delivery. With HealthSuite at its center, Philips brings a secure, interoperable and future-ready informatics platform that integrates live-streaming, high-fidelity data with contextual decision support, presenting actionable insights for individual patients and at scale.
“Digital transformation and a faster adoption of digital technologies is possible, as we have seen during the COVID-19 pandemic. How we partner with our customers to serve their evolving needs across operations and patient care is more essential than ever, especially as healthcare organizations face many challenges – from staffing shortages, to security challenges, to gaps in patient care” said Roy Jakobs, Chief Business Leader Connected Care, Philips. “We aim to be the caregiver’s trusted partner, by providing a secure backbone, revealing patient insights at the point-of-care and beyond, to help drive confident clinical and operational decision making as part of their ecosystem. We are with our customers at every step of innovation to streamline workflows, accelerate diagnosis and treatment, and optimize patient and staff experiences.”
Philips’ commitment to empowering clinicians with meaningful innovation and actionable insights is evident in its latest accolades. Most recently, the purpose-built, cloud-based Philips HealthSuite Platform, which serves as the foundation of Philips’ informatics innovation, was recognized in the 2021 Gartner® Market Guide for Digital Health Platforms. Additionally, Philips received two ‘Best in KLAS’ awards from KLAS Research for Philips Enterprise Viewer – Vue Motion – and Philips EMR Tasy electronic medical record.
Advancing care pathways across the continuum
Visitors to the Philips Booth (#2501) at HIMSS will experience a full suite of integrated informatics solutions, ranging from emergency care, to precision diagnosis, to ambulatory and home care, with a focus on integrated solutions across the following key care pathways:
Ambulatory Cardiac Care: Philips’ portfolio of cardiology solutions can help make care delivery accurate, comprehensive and efficient, with clinically validated ambulatory cardiac diagnostics, monitoring services and a cardiac data platform that integrates data from almost any remote cardiac monitoring device. In a recent example, Philips announced the results of a study  that found 30-days of a continuous monitoring program using Philips BioTel Heart MCOT patch improved atrial fibrillation detection rates among post-cryptogenic stroke patients, while minimizing cost and reducing the risk of secondary stroke.
Integrated Diagnostics: Philips HealthSuite Interoperability is a fully integrated cloud-enabled Health IT platform that meets diverse workflow needs across the imaging enterprise, enabling better integration of imaging and related data across various clinical service lines. Philips Enterprise Performance Analytics – PerformanceBridge – will provide real-time insights in utilization and clinical operations in radiology and cardiology to help better leverage the workforce, enhance efficiencies and improve care delivery and patient experience. Both innovations are part of Philips Data Management and Interoperability Solutions , an integrated, scalable portfolio of innovative technologies, analytics and professional services, designed to support healthcare providers to continuously improve performance. Philips will also highlight its market leading Enterprise Imaging solutions and the emerging clinical applications on that platform as it helps health systems to accelerate in their progress along the HIMSS Digital Imaging Adoption Model (DIAM).
Acute Patient Management: Philips’ acute patient management solutions help accelerate diagnosis and treatment, identify changes through precise and continuous patient monitoring and help provide accurate and predictive surveillance based on multi device and systems patient data so caregivers can provide a timely response with confidence. In defining moments and throughout the patient journey, Philips aims to extend the sight and reach of providers across settings and through transitions to orchestrate better patient experiences, effective care management and optimal outcomes.
