“Our partnership with Philips aims at embedding smart devices in a digital health ecosystem that simplifies access to therapy-relevant medication adherence data,” said Ulrike Bauer, Senior Vice President Ypsomed Delivery Systems. “This will allow our pharmaceutical customers to focus on building therapy-specific digital solutions for patients, caregivers and physicians.”
“Integrating Ypsomed’s smart devices and data into the Philips HealthSuite ecosystem means pharma companies will be able to develop solutions that leverage HealthSuite’s secure, cloud-based services,” said Dale Wiggins, Business Leader HealthSuite digital platform at Philips. “It will shorten time-to-market, enable them to scale-up solutions in a secure HIPAA-compliant way, and allow them to integrate data from Ypsomed devices with other data sources to support many different value-added use cases.”
Ypsomed is the preferred partner for pharmaceutical and biotech companies for the supply of injections pens, autoinjectors and infusion systems to administer liquid drugs. Ypsomed promotes and sells its product portfolio under the mylife™ Diabetescare brand directly to patients or through pharmacies and clinics, and under YDS Ypsomed Delivery Systems umbrella brand for business-to-business sales to pharmaceutical companies.
Philips’ open HealthSuite digital platform addresses the growing need to break down the data silos that pervade today’s healthcare systems by enabling secure access to, and analysis of, clinical data from multiple medical devices. This new collaboration between Philips and Ypsomed aims to embed smart medical devices, such as Ypsomed’s YpsoMate® with SmartPilot™ combination, in a digital architecture that bridges therapy-specific care pathways rather than siloing them.
