Philips brings adaptive intelligence to Australia and New Zealand
Estimated reading time: 2-4 minutes
Northland District Health Board (DHB) will be the first user of Philips Illumeo in Australia and New Zealand. Illumeo is an imaging and informatics technology with adaptive intelligence  that redefines and enhances how radiologists work with medical images. It combines contextual awareness capabilities with advanced data analytics to augment the work of the radiologist. Northland DHB is not only a pioneer for the ANZ region, but is the first healthcare provider to implement the Illumeo technology outside of the United States.
Developed in partnership with radiologists, Illumeo is delivering a new approach to how radiologists see, seek and share patient information. Using adaptive intelligence to pull data from various hospital sources, the intelligent software presents a holistic view of the patient and provide diagnostic tools that adapt to physician needs, offering added insights and optimizing their workflow based on their own preferences to enhance clinician confidence for every patient. Illumeo aims to enable faster diagnoses, to drive well-informed care decisions and improved patient care.
Improving workflow and increasing the value that radiology provides to the DHB is a priority for our department. We’re delighted to have the opportunity to be some of the first in the world to implement Illumeo and enhance our service across the Northland region.

“Improving workflow and increasing the value that radiology provides to the DHB is a priority for our department,” said Radiologist Dr Alistair Rumball-Smith of Northland HDB. “We’re delighted to have the opportunity to be some of the first in the world to implement Illumeo and enhance our service across the Northland region.”
 Adaptive intelligence is seen as an emerging concept of combining domain specific models and knowledge (e.g. in the field of Radiology) and Artificial Intelligence to create an adaptive and contextual experience, anticipating users and augmenting their work. The current release of Philips Illumeo exhibits the first step into Adaptive Intelligence.
Through its Data Analytics Engine, Illumeo automatically provides the radiologist with the most relevant case-related information in one single view.
Illumeo’s Findings Presenter changes how Radiologists can share clinical information. It integrates islands of patient information and enables dynamic and tailored output and more informed and meaningful discussion.
