Amsterdam, The Netherlands – Royal Philips (NYSE: PHG, AEX: PHIA), a global leader in health technology, and Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd. today announced plans for a strategic partnership to connect Samsung’s ARTIK Smart IoT Platform to the Philips HealthSuite Digital Platform. This collaboration will ultimately allow the Samsung ARTIK ecosystem of connected devices to safely access and share information with Philips’ cloud platform. Healthcare application developers will be able to realize interoperable connected health solutions using integrated data sets and innovative HealthSuite services such as advanced health analytics.
“This collaboration will enable healthcare application developers to focus on the development of innovative applications rather than on the technical integration of devices,” said Dale Wiggins, General Manager Philips HealthSuite Digital Platform at Philips. “By strengthening our HealthSuite ecosystem with Samsung ARTIK, we will be taking another important step in breaking down the silos in today’s healthcare domain to create a trusted and seamless care experience for both consumers and care professionals.”
