“Precision across the diagnostic enterprise is more important today than ever before. To help meet our customers’ greatest challenges, we are pivoting away from standalone products to an integrated systems and solutions approach focused on data and intelligence to drive operational efficiency in an automated way for informed practice management and continuous improvement,” said Kees Wesdorp, Chief Business Leader, Precision Diagnosis at Philips. “Visitors to our Philips RSNA virtual site will experience Philips smart connected systems with solutions that optimize radiology workflows, generate insights from integrated diagnostics leading to clear care pathways and predictable outcomes for every patient.”
The Philips Radiology Workflow Suite helps drive clinical and operational efficiency across all phases of the diagnostic enterprise, including:
- Scheduling and preparation – Patients anxious about a potentially serious diagnosis can receive support even before arriving for their exams, with personalized instructions and reminders delivered via SMS-based communications from Philips Patient Management, making its debut at RSNA 2020.
- Image acquisition – Technologists under pressure to achieve a first-time-right scan can now be supported virtually by remote specialists through the Radiology Operations Command Center. Philips’ Collaboration Live, available on premiere Philips ultrasound systems, also connects technologists with colleagues and specialists whenever and wherever required. To streamline patient setup, the MR SmartWorkflow reduces and simplifies the number of steps needed in a conventional MR exam workflow, using technology to automate where possible. And the Radiology Imaging Suite provides the technologist with a common imaging platform and more streamlined workflows by integrating patient information and advanced visualization and analysis into one easy-to-view console.
- Image and data interpretation – Radiologists confronted with increasing numbers of images to read can now receive a prioritized worklist from the AI-enabled Workflow Orchestrator, along with an intuitive summary of advanced visualization and analysis from various systems presented in a single view. IntelliSpace Portal Advanced Visualization also connects patient data across departments to create interoperability for greater clinical intelligence and analysis, supported by AI-tools such as an algorithm for the detection of COVID-19 lesions.
- Reporting and results communication – To streamline reporting, the Interactive Multimedia Reporting module of Philips’ Clinical Collaboration Platform, with embedded voice recognition capability, helps radiologists cut turnaround time by entirely eliminating the need for typing and entry of patient or clinical context. Exam data can be inserted directly into reports, allowing radiologists to quickly review and approve final reports while adding clinical context for referring physicians.
- Shared decision-making, pathway selection and treatment – For referring physicians who need to offer confident recommendations on a patient’s care pathway, Philips’ Oncology Collaborator integrates radiology, genomic, lab, treatment and other data into a single view so radiologists and oncologists, together with the extended clinical team, can see the whole patient profile at a glance and decide on a treatment pathway efficiently and collaboratively.
- Outcomes and follow-up care – Radiology administrators are empowered to help patients keep to their treatment plans while improving overall operational efficiency with the real-time performance metrics and follow-up patient tracking provided by Philips Operational Informatics. The Philips Patient Portal empowers patients to access and share their information and access their results between facilities, physicians, specialists and other healthcare providers.
