With SHINEFLY, Philips and Digital Health China offer a scalable, customizable cloud-based image management solution for remotely storing, retrieving, viewing and analyzing medical images. SHINEFLY will include advanced clinical applications for cardiology, neurology and oncology. These will be deployed as cloud-based tele-radiology services and will pioneer pay-per-use arrangements to reduce costs for healthcare institutions. SHINEFLY allows radiological images and associated patient information to be remotely viewed, analyzed and reported on by clinical experts anywhere in the country, so that patients can receive optimum treatment via their local hospital, wherever they are.
“Philips is committed to integrating and co-creating solutions that reflect local health market needs to deliver better healthcare experiences for doctors and patients at lower cost,” said Andy Ho, CEO Philips Greater China. “SHINEFLY, co-created with Digital China Health, is one of the fruits of this strategy in China. This highly innovative cloud-based solution will support clinicians with definitive diagnoses and facilitates the delivery of consistently high quality of care.”
“As a key player in China’s national big-data strategy, Digital China Health’s strategic mission is to advance the development of health information technology and the application of the Cloud in healthcare,” said Shi Wenzhao, CEO of Digital China Health. “The partnership between Digital China Health and Philips is intended to connect foreign and domestic professional health technology organizations and leading companies, with the aim of identifying a healthcare delivery model that suits China and drives the development of AI-driven precision medicine in the country.”
SHINEFLY can be customized to suit several different radiological service models. For example, it can be used in tiered hospital alliances to make medical images and clinical applications available at all levels; used by national medical centers to provide disease-specific radiology services; or used to create commercial on-demand doctors’ group services that individual hospitals can subscribe to. Such Initiatives are regarded as important elements in expanding China’s healthcare system to meet the needs of its population.
