Philips IntelliSpace Event Management Solution Offers Enhanced Platform for Critical Patient Alerts

Royal Philips ElectronicsRoyal Philips Electronics (NYSE: PHG, AEX: PHI) announced the release of IntelliSpace Event Management, an alert notification solution that provides an enhanced platform with expanded clinical support to manage disparate care system alerts. Today's healthcare enterprises are being challenged to manage and respond efficiently to multiple event notifications, alerts and alarms. This solution allows clinicians to better focus on the delivery of care and reduce communication breakdowns.

The Philips IntelliSpace Event Management solution received 510(k) clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in January 2011. It adds a configurable historical database that further enhances the care teams' ability to access information that can improve workflow and increase efficiencies. The introduction of virtualization capabilities also enables the solution to be more effectively integrated into hospital IT infrastructure, to improve system manageability and optimization.

This latest addition to the Philips IntelliSpace portfolio of clinical informatics solutions is the next generation Philips Emergin solution which builds on the success of the Emergin Enterprise Service Bus and Gateway products. Routing and escalations are a critical component of the solution, with functionality that enables timely routing of alerts to appropriate caregivers and escalation to alternative care providers when the primary caregiver is out of range or unavailable.

"IntelliSpace Event Management offers the healthcare industry one of the broadest choices of integrations for critical communications across medical devices, hospital information systems and mobile communication devices. At a time when physicians and nurses are being overwhelmed with clinical information, we enable them to sharpen their focus on meaningful and actionable patient alerts that can improve the quality and delivery of care," explained Frank Sample, vice president and general manager, Enterprise Patient Informatics Solutions, for Philips Healthcare. "Our product strategy further reinforces the Philips' commitment to lead the market with robust clinical informatics support for ongoing hospital quality and patient safety initiatives."

Philips Emergin solutions integrate with more than 200 input and output devices and have passed certification testing as Alarm Manager under the Alarm Communication Management (ACM) Profile developed by Integrating the Healthcare Enterprise (IHE).
