Philips IntelliSpace Perinatal, an obstetrics information management solution, is designed to provide comprehensive coverage across the obstetrical care continuum—from the first antepartum visit to delivery, and postpartum follow-up visits.
Patient-focused surveillance unifies patient records
IntelliSpace Perinatal provides a comprehensive clinical record of care for the mother and newborn. The surveillance functions present information that is transmitted from fetal and fetal/maternal monitors and generate alerts for critical events. Philips worked with the Department of Obstetrics and the Laboratory of Computer Science of the Massachusetts General Hospital¹, incorporating their knowledge, expertise, and years of experience into the development of IntelliSpace Perinatal.
