At Philips, we innovate with purpose, improving people’s health and well-being through meaningful innovation. We view healthcare as a continuum, starting with healthy living and prevention, precision diagnosis and personalized treatment, through to care in the home – where the cycle to healthy living begins again. It puts people’s health journeys front and center and builds upon the idea of integrated care pathways. Believing that healthcare should, and can, be seamless, efficient and effective, we strive to ‘connect the dots’ for our customers and consumers, supporting the flow of data needed to care for people in real time, wherever they are.

We innovate with purpose, based on the voice of the customer, to deliver an exceptional experience. Our goal is a world where technology meets the real, everyday needs of people.

Innovation informed by data-driven insights

Whatever the innovation challenge, people are at the heart of our process. We listen to their experiences and needs and understand their daily routines. We stay curious, ask questions and reflect on how we can best apply our thinking, our ideas and our experience to their problems and requirements. This enables us to create solutions – combinations of devices systems software and services – that are integrated in people's daily lives and in the workflows of healthcare professionals.

We innovate with our partners

Our very best work is done with others. We actively seek out impactful innovation partnerships with suppliers and customers across the health ecosystem, including tech partners, start-ups, medical centers and government agencies. These enduring relationships are critical to our approach. By relying on each other’s contributions, challenging ideas, and sharing our unique perspectives, we can push boundaries and co-create powerful solutions that make a difference.

At the forefront of healthcare transformation

Every day, we see how digital technology is enabling the transformation of healthcare. With our roadmap into the future of health technology, we are uniquely placed to deliver powerful solutions that address our customers’ evolving needs and strengthen the connection between patients and providers.


In doing so, we help advance our collective journey to deliver on the Quadruple Aim better health outcomes, a better experience for patients and staff, and lower cost of care – wherever care is being delivered.
