Amsterdam, the Netherlands and Cambridge, U.S. – Royal Philips (NYSE: PHG, AEX: PHIA), a global leader in health technology, announced today the U.S. debut of its new cognitive assessment platform IntelliSpace Cognition. Leveraging the power of artificial intelligence (AI) and Philips’ cloud-based HealthSuite Digital Platform, IntelliSpace Cognition provides healthcare professionals with a powerful aid for assessing cognitive impairment.
IntelliSpace Cognition automates and enhances well-established neuropsychological tests, offering new insights for clinicians treating patients with debilitating neurological conditions. It provides direct access to detailed information about a patient’s cognition while also providing quantitative longitudinal data to aid in assessing disease progression and treatment efficacy.
“There is a real need for quantitative measures to assess the cognitive impairment of people with neurological disease,” said Dr. Joseph Fritz, CEO of DENT Neurologic Institute, the first neurology practice to use IntelliSpace Cognition. “Computerized tools and intelligent algorithms offer new opportunities in this area to improve care. The depth of information now available and the efficiency with which we can perform assessments can be very helpful for providing feedback to patients and families sooner and developing treatment plans more quickly.”
