Philips Series IV is the DNA of the new Philips Xper Information Management catheterization (cath) lab workflow solution that was introduced last year. While naming the Series IV "Category Leader" for three straight years highlights Philips' strength in the cath lab, earning both hemodynamic and reporting awards demonstrates Philips' market leadership throughout the cardiovascular continuum of care.
"This prestigious recognition for Philips cardiology technology is both flattering and affirming," said Bruce Reese, general manager, Interventional Patient Care for Philips Healthcare. "Xcelera helps to solve organization and workflow challenges, as it brings advanced clinical tools from multiple imaging modalities onto one centralized platform to foster clinical collaboration when diagnosing patients. When combined with Xper Information Management's hemodynamic monitoring and cath lab information management features, Philips offers customers proven innovations to meet their evolving cardiovascular IT needs. Plus, we are supporting these solutions with world class customer service."
