Philips’ Connected Care Solutions Help Improve Patient Outcomes in the Philippines 


Combining industry-leading devices, software and services to create smart, holistic solutions that help improve hospital workflow for better patient care

Manila, Philippines,  Royal Philips (NYSE: PHG, AEX: PHIA) – Philips, a leading health technology company, partners with health systems to deliver on the quadruple aim to improve health outcomes, patient and staff experiences and reduce cost of care. Integrated solutions connect patients, technology and data to support clinical decisions at the point of care, improving both the patient and the healthcare professional experience, while at the same time optimizing care delivery with integrated care pathways.

 

Most hospitals have enormous amounts of data and it can be challenging to access the right data, in the right context, representing a comprehensive view of the patient’s condition.  Not only does data need to be more integrated and accessible, it has to be actionable, wherever care takes place. 

 

Philips’ scalable, secure and interoperable health information management portfolio features AI-powered smart enterprise systems, devices, software and services. This focuses on patient care solutions, advanced analytics and patient and workflow optimization inside and outside the hospital, providing data that is intelligently filtered and presented at the right time and place.

Philips’ connected care solutions provide care to the patient from point-of-care at the hospital to the patient’s recovery at home, including continuous monitoring throughout the hospital stay, aggregating data into clinical-decision insights, implementing smart alarms and improving patient’s recovery at home. When we close the current gaps in patient monitoring with connected technology, we will experience more consistent patient care, seamless patient transitions, improved outcomes and one step closer to a value-based care ecosystem.
