Amsterdam, the Netherlands – Royal Philips (NYSE: PHG, AEX: PHIA), a global leader in health technology, will showcase a broad range of integrated oncology solutions, including IntelliSpace Genomics and IntelliSpace Oncology, to help support and scale precision medicine programs to assist oncologists with treatment decisions at the 2018 American Society of Clinical Oncology Annual Meeting (ASCO) in Chicago, Ill.
Individualized, precision medicine is key in reaching accurate diagnoses and effective treatment plans for cancer patients, but should be informed through accepted best practices to maximize quality of care and outcomes. These patients require constant vigilance and collaboration across multiple domains, and oncologists can face challenges when trying to compile a complete picture of all necessary patient information to support the decision making process. With new technologies and solutions like IntelliSpace Oncology, a cloud-based platform integrating information across different clinical domains such as radiology, pathology, EHR systems and genomics, all key patient data is seamlessly incorporated into one location, to provide a clear, intuitive view of patient status in its disease and state context that facilitates data-driven clinical decision support.
“Philips is committed to empowering clinicians with successful oncology care pathways by providing them with the necessary solutions to do so,” said Louis Culot, general manager, Oncology Informatics, Philips. “As a leader in oncology diagnostics, informatics and therapeutics, Philips is always striving to find ways to make life better for those suffering from cancer, as well as those responsible for delivering that care.”
