Utilizing clinical surveillance to empower new care models
Philips has expanded its informatics portfolio to support these new care models with vendor-neutral, configurable surveillance capabilities. This technology helps healthcare providers better understand patient status in real-time, adjust care plans, and recognize deterioration risk to help prevent patient decline. By analyzing live streaming data and applying smart rules, the system generates insights tailored to specific patients and populations. These insights are securely delivered to caregivers at any clinical touchpoint, empowering them to make better-informed clinical decisions and initiate appropriate interventions quickly. Philips clinical surveillance solutions include patient data visualization, alerting, event management, and patient data analytics. Clinical surveillance may help improve staff efficiency and satisfaction, patient safety, and outcomes across acute care settings by extending the capacity of the entire care team.
“Over the past few years, our customers have experienced major changes in healthcare globally, with the increasing shortage of qualified healthcare professionals being one of the biggest pain points. For care providers, leveraging data technologies to alleviate the pressure on clinicians is a top priority,” said Elad Benjamin, General Manager, Clinical Integration & Insights at Philips. “By liberating data from existing medical devices and replacing complexity with tailored, protocol-based insights, we can help customers improve the clinical workflow of their frontline care teams, enhance the patient and staff experience, and could help to improve the quality of care.”
