“Reducing non-actionable alarms was the driving force behind the development of the Philips Information Center iX (PIC iX), the heart of the Philips Patient Monitoring solution. The central monitoring system fits securely into your hospital’s IT environment to capture a steady stream of virtually gap-free patient data and feed it directly to the EMR. It gives on-the-move caregivers’ visibility to a patient’s changing condition, no matter where care takes place. And it taps the power of advanced clinical decision support tools and smart alarms to help identify patients in need, so clinicians have the relevant information to make fast, informed care decisions with confidence."
– Dr. Felix Baader, Business Leader, Monitoring and Analytics, Philips
PIC iX is one of many Critical Care solutions featured at the upcoming 31st Annual European Society of Intensive Medicine (ESICM) Congress in Paris, where Philips will showcase smart intelligent solutions and platforms that represent the ICU of the future to address current intensive medicine challenges like tackling delirium, managing patient transitions and reducing nuisance alarms. At ESICM, Philips will spotlight bedside and transport monitors, central station, mobile applications and ultrasound and ventilation solutions, all designed to support its commitment to improving patient care, while addressing the ICU challenges of today and tomorrow.
