“The rise of chronic conditions and the simple fact that the global population is aging, present challenges across global healthcare ecosystems already facing resource constraints amidst a shifting technology landscape,” said Eli Diacopoulos, Business Leader of Respiratory Care at Philips. “At Philips, we’re committed to meeting those challenges by equipping providers, clinicians and patients with the tools and information needed to provide the best care experience possible. To do that, it’s essential to continue to develop integrated technologies that make it easier to share, analyze and use data, to help clinicians make better informed decisions, reduce costs and readmissions and ultimately improve patient care.”
At ERS, Philips will spotlight its broad portfolio of connected solutions and services designed to address the needs of patients with chronic sleep and respiratory conditions and help health systems achieve the Quadruple Aim of value-based healthcare: an improved experience for patients and staff, improved patient outcomes, better health outcomes and a lower cost of care. Featured solutions include innovative non-invasive ventilation (NIV) device therapies, nebulizers, portable oxygen concentrators, obstructive sleep apnea therapy solutions – including new options for positional sleep apnea patients – and new consumer sleep technologies.
Philips will also showcase its robust connected care platform, which helps to enable providers and physicians to more effectively manage patient care in a single platform, while providing patients with more active engagement with their own health and therapy. Each solution and service showcased at ERS has been developed based on nearly 40 years of clinical expertise and a customer-first mindset.
In addition to showcasing its growing portfolio of sleep and respiratory solutions, Philips will also present multiple clinical abstracts on topics ranging from cost of care to Expiratory Flow Limitation. Philips will also lead three industry practical workshops during the show:
