Amsterdam, the Netherlands and Chicago, USA – Royal Philips (NYSE: PHG, AEX: PHIA), a global leader in health technology, today highlighted the central role that Enterprise Informatics plays in its efforts to enable care providers to concentrate their limited resources on achieving better outcomes for patients. By providing software and hardware solutions that work together seamlessly across care settings, workflows, and across vendors, the company’s solutions showcased at HIMSS23 utilize clinical and operational data to enhance productivity, streamline processes and improve results.
“Digitization has unleashed a flood of data that presents a huge opportunity but is also overwhelming clinicians, nurses, and administrators,” said Shez Partovi, Chief Innovation & Strategy Officer and Business Leader Enterprise Informatics at Philips. “Focusing on the clinicians, doctors, nurses and others caring for patients, we apply technology to extract the signal from the noise, to provide the right data at the right time, all with the aim of reducing the pressure these carers are under and helping them to deliver better patient outcomes.”
Unlocking enterprise-wide, actionable insights at scale to improve outcomes
From integrated imaging, digital pathology and genomics through monitoring and therapies, Philips’ informatics solutions liberate and connect data for clinical confidence, predictive insights and more efficient operations. Philips’ latest AI-enabled, interoperable and cloud-based enterprise informatics solutions featured at HIMSS include the following key areas of focus:
Integrated diagnostics: By delivering more efficient connected workflows, such as embedded reporting and AI powered applications to eliminate manual processes, Philips’ diagnostic informatics help deliver greater diagnostic precision, reduced staff workload and variability, increased productivity, and an enhanced clinician experience. At HIMSS23 Philips is highlighting its integrated diagnostics partnership with Saint-Joseph Hospital & Marie-Lannelongue Hospital to improve personalized cancer care.
Hospital and acute care: Hospital virtual care, acute care management and Philips Capsule Surveillance solutions provide flexible enterprise-wide capabilities, supporting clinician mobility, data sharing, predictive analytics, alarm management, plus system integration across hospital and critical care patient journeys. For example, Northwell Health recently adopted Philips’ patient monitoring platform to drive integration and innovation for a better patient and staff experience and improved outcomes.
Out-of-hospital and ambulatory care: Philips Virtual Care Management can help reduce pressure on hospital staff by decreasing emergency department visits by an average of 38%, as well as potential savings in the cost of care through better management of chronic disease . The combination of hospital and cardiac ambulatory monitoring help to create a powerful ecosystem of home-to-hospital and hospital-to-home care that allows clinicians to proactively diagnose and manage their patients.
Care management and operations: Imaging orchestration, enterprise performance analytics, and hospital virtual care solutions unite data, surveillance, and people to support healthcare organizations in making clinical, financial, and operational improvements. For example, Philips Imaging Orchestrator – ROCC a vendor-neutral, multi-modality, multi-site telepresence solution provides advanced tele-acquisition capabilities and seamlessly connects imaging experts at a command center with technologists at scanners across locations.
