“The versatility, portability and safety of point of care ultrasound, has made it one of the most widely used first-line diagnostic tools,” said Dr. Wale Olusanya, Center Manager of the BT Health and Diagnostic Center of the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital. “In a resource constrained environment, technology like Lumify can strengthen referral pathways affording quick diagnosis in emergency departments in major towns, or with time even in more remote areas improving patient outcomes”.
For example, Lumify with Reacts can bring experts into an ultrasound exam, no matter the distance, allowing midwives in remote locations to consult an obstetrician, who can provide perspective and guidance as if they were in the same room. Philips Lumify with Reacts is also a valuable tool for teaching institutions, medical students and residents, emergency medical service providers, disaster relief organizations, and hospitals that operate satellite clinics. Users have access to an online portal where they can manage their device and access Philips’ support, training and IT services.
