Amsterdam, The Netherlands – Royal Philips (NYSE: PHG, AEX: PHIA) today announced its participation in the 2016 European Congress of Radiology (ECR), held in Vienna, Austria, 2-6 March. The Philips booth (#102) located in hall X4 will showcase the company’s ongoing commitment to radiology, empowering more efficient, connected healthcare solutions from diagnosis to treatment.
Powered by the HealthSuite digital platform, an open, cloud based platform that allows the creation of the next generation of connected health and clinical IT innovations, Philips has developed smart Imaging Data Analytics designed to analyze and assess modality performance to anticipate service requirements before they occur. One example is Philips ‘e-Alert’ services, which monitors critical system parameters 24/7 in order to identify and mitigate potential system issues before they affect daily operations.
“Our strategic goal is to move from a reactive to a proactive service model that enables uninterrupted continuity in care delivery,” said Robert Cascella, CEO Imaging Business Groups at Philips. “We have built the capability to identify a potential problem before it happens. Customers require both optimal clinical performance and predictable cost of ownership – something smart data analytics can provide very effectively.”
“Remote Service from Philips has enabled us to achieve system availability of more than 99%,” said Prof. Dr.H.P.Busch, former Director of the Center for Radiology, Neuroradiology, Sonography and Nuclear Medicine, Krankenhaus der Barmherzigen Bruder Trier, Germany. “For example, failure of our cooling water supply was detected at an early stage and a potential quench of the MR prevented.”
The Philips commitment to innovative radiology solutions includes improving services and continuing to engage with radiology customers, delivering integrated software, solutions and services that resonate with their specific needs. Philips provides radiology practices and the critical insights needed to transform care, enabling practices to be more efficient and effective, while shaping positive clinical, financial, and operational environments. This commitment helps to improve people’s health and enable better care across the entire health continuum.
