The Ambient Experience preparation & recovery bay is the latest addition to Philips’ highly innovative patient-centered Ambient Experience portfolio. With more than 1,250 Ambient Experience installations worldwide, Philips is setting new standards in patient-centric hospital suite designs that help to improve the experience of the patient, their family and staff. The portfolio includes offerings for radiology, cardiology, oncology and emergency departments, and (neonatal) intensive care units. An example is Philips’ Ambient Experience in-bore Connect solution for the company’s MRI scanners. As a positive example of the benefits these patient calming solutions can achieve, a recent study at Herlev Gentofte University Hospital in Denmark revealed that the average number of MR re-scans decreased by 70% when using in-bore Connect . As part of its mission to improve the lives of 3 billion people a year by 2025, Philips continues to pioneer hospital solutions that focus on the needs of patients and contribute to better outcomes.
