Manila, Philippines
 - Royal Philips (NYSE: PHG, AEX: PHIA) aims to improve the lives of three billion people by 2020 and creating healthier societies by offering innovative solutions across the Health Continuum. As a leading health technology company, Philips provides end-to-end healthcare solutions across the five domains of healthy living, prevention, diagnosis, treatment and home care, bridging the needs of consumers and patients.


In the Philippines, the healthcare delivery system is dominated by the public sector while being supported by private healthcare service providers. According to the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) community, Philippines is one of the fastest growing healthcare markets in the region. However, the lack of infrastructure and human resources strain the healthcare delivery system in the country due to challenging circumstances such as a huge gap in the number of medical professionals required to cater the needs of the growing population.

Through the launch of the breastfeeding room and dream room, Philips demonstrates how their solutions can be used in real-life situations and through multiple health-medical scenarios. This enables the prototyping of new solutions and workflows for healthcare professionals and various key stakeholders to design future facilities and hospitals.

According to Urasinee Patarasongkram, Country manager, Philips Philippines Inc “At Philips, we aim to deliver innovative solutions across the health continuum by empowering people to live life to their fullest potential, especially among our employees. We are now seeing a lot of Filipino consumers who are becoming increasingly engaged in their own health as they recognize the value of living not just a long but also, a quality life.”

With these new areas, Philips hopes to help people understand the importance of healthy living and how they can take greater responsibility for their everyday habits, and become more engaged in their own lifestyle choices personal health journey.

A more comfortable, happier mom would equal to a more productive employee

This Breastfeeding month, Philips Philippines Inc. is partnering with different private institutions in the country to raise awareness on the importance of breastfeeding by creating environments that are comfortable for a nursing mother.

 

This means providing support for moms who wish to breastfeed– in public, at home, at work or out-and-about - providing guidance and designing products to make their journey comfortable.

To help every mother in the community understand the essential benefits of breast milk, Philips AVENT provides nursing mothers with innovations that enhance her breastfeeding journey even after mothers return to work.

Connecting home care for improved quality of life

Philips innovations support recovery and chronic care at home and connect extended care teams seamlessly, to give healthcare professionals and their patients the confidence and peace of mind that they are always getting the care they need.

 

Respironics, the leading provider of innovative solutions for the sleep and respiratory market, is now part of Philips, a global leader in healthcare and well-being helps in providing better care to healthcare professionals and their patients.

 

Philips empowers patients to independently monitor their respiratory condition and effectively take their medications. The innovation in sleep apnea management, oxygen therapy, noninvasive ventilation and respiratory drug delivery is driven by gaining insight into the needs of our customers.
