Singapore – Royal Philips (NYSE: PHG, AEX: PHIA) today launched the Health Continuum Space, developed to facilitate collaboration with governments, healthcare professionals and related stakeholders to design and co-create future healthcare facilities and hospitals. The launch was graced by Guest of Honor, Mr. Chee Hong Tat, Minister of State, Ministry of Communications and Information & Ministry of Health.
Fully-equipped and built with flexibility in mind, the 1,028 square-meter Health Continuum Space housed in the Philips APAC Center in Singapore has the capability to contextualize multiple health-medical scenarios at the same time – from a hospital all the way to a patient’s home. The space, which houses various Philips healthcare solutions and equipment, enables prototyping and co-creation of new solutions that help make a meaningful difference in the future of patient care and clinical workflows.
“Philips is uniquely positioned to operate at the intersection of people, technology and healthcare systems. This position, together with our deep clinical knowledge, inspired us to create this facility with our design experts, with the integration of healthcare systems in mind. This space brings to life how healthcare technology is leveraged to enable different parts of health ecosystems to work together to deliver innovative solutions, eventually addressing complex healthcare issues such as rising medical costs, and the increasing burden of chronic diseases caused by an ageing population.” said Diederik Zeven, General Manager, Health Systems, Philips ASEAN Pacific.
