Technology firm Philips is intensifying its focus on the medical field with its integrated solutions that connect patients, technology, and data to support clinical decisions at the point of care.
The Dutch firm said most hospitals have enormous amounts of data and it can be challenging to access the right data that gives a comprehensive view of the patient’s condition. Not only does data need to be more integrated and accessible, it has to be actionable, wherever care takes place, according to Philips.
The company said its AI-powered health information management portfolio addresses those needs. The system, it said, features patient care solutions, advanced analytics and patient, and workflow optimization that provide data that is intelligently filtered and presented at the right time and place.
“Philips connected care solutions provide care to the patient from point-of-care at the hospital to the patient’s recovery at home, including continuous monitoring throughout the hospital stay, aggregating data into clinical-decision insights, implementing smart alarms and improving patient’s recovery at home,” said Ashwin Chari, general manager of Philips Philippines.
“When we close the current gaps in patient monitoring with connected technology, we will experience more consistent patient care, seamless patient transitions, improved outcomes and one step closer to a value-based care ecosystem,” he added.
In the recent Connected Care exhibition held recently at Edsa Shangri-la Hotel, Philips showcased its connected care system designed precisely to bring about better health outcomes.
“Our Philips Connected Care exhibition features combined devices, software and services of healthcare facilities. They integrate, aggregate and analyze patients’ data for early intervention or post-acute health management,” said Chari.
“We focus on the most major and demanding care settings such as emergency care, cardiology, critical and general care to develop integrated solutions to enable smarter workflows and improved pathway solutions for hospitals,” he added.
