Expansion of Philips Connected Care solutions into new markets

Earlier this year, Philips announced the latest iteration of its IntelliSpace Enterprise Edition, which combines Philips Radiology, Cardiology portfolios and PerformanceBridge, which now includes the new IntelliSpace Precision Medicine Oncology Platform, IntelliSpace Precision Medicine Genomics and IntelliSpace Exchange solutions. The comprehensive enterprise-wide health informatics solution leverages adaptive intelligence and advanced technology, powered by Philips HealthSuite, to enable health systems to make informed and timely decisions, in the right place at the right time. Following several successful installations and clinical use in the U.S., Philips IntelliSpace Enterprise Edition is now available in Germany and the Middle East, with continued expansion to additional international markets planned in the coming months.

"The complexity of hospital IT operations is growing rapidly, causing increasing challenges for CIOs and health IT departments worldwide," said Carla Kriwet, Chief Business Leader of Connected Care at Philips. "Solutions like IntelliSpace Enterprise Edition further demonstrate Philips’ commitment to provide an intelligent, integrated system of data management and analytics to help facilitate more informed decision-making and care delivery to improve health outcomes, patient and staff experience and reduce cost of care."

Philips has also extended its Acute Care Suite of critical care applications through successful Tele-ICU implementations in the UK, the Middle East, Australia and Japan to address the shortage of critical care expert physicians. The Philips eICU Program is a globally adopted solution, linking technology with evidence based care transformation. Through a centralized continuous model of clinical surveillance, advanced clinical decision support analytics enable providers to identify clinically meaningful results to intervene proactively at the earliest indication of patient deterioration. Data is then communicated via audio-video technology with bedside caregivers to develop the best course of treatment from wherever they are located. In addition, Philips Tasy EMR [1], a next generation electronic medical record solution, has expanded into the European market and Australia. Philips Tasy EMR offers one integrated solution across all care settings through a single platform and database to enable centralized management of clinical, organizational and administrative processes. Advanced clinical analytics allow for streamlining workflows, driving quality and efficiency of care and patient safety.
