Philips cardiology experience at the Virtual ESC 2021 Congress
Visitors to the Philips virtual experience during ESC will see how Philips’ solutions help strengthen clinical confidence with robust data and advanced technologies to give insight to provide the right care at the right time, improving outcomes for even the most complex patients. Building efficiency throughout the care pathway, Philips is streamlining communication between devices and systems to identify and address operational improvements to optimize resources and help reduce costs. By improving cardiac care experiences with user-friendly tools and streamlined workflows, Philips is helping relieve pain points for staff and enhancing comfort for patients.
Technology highlights in diagnostic and treatment solutions at this year’s virtual ESC congress include:
- Philips Spectral CT 7500 for advanced cardiac imaging. The new Philips Spectral CT 7500, designed to support diagnosis, builds on Philips’s strong reputation in cardiac imaging by delivering fast cardiac scans with excellent coronary vessel visualization, and now layers of spectral information for every exam. The spectral detector allows the Spectral CT 7500 to be the only system that will acquire spectral cardiac data in the same time and place for all patients, from pediatrics to bariatrics. This latest intelligent system has demonstrated a 34% reduction in time to diagnosis , a 25% reduction in repeat scans and a 30% reduction in follow-up scans  compared to conventional CT. The time-saving spectral workflow is fully integrated, enabling spectral chest scans. Intelligent workflows of Philips IntelliSpace Portal simplify advanced vessel analysis, comprehensive cardiac assessment, lung nodule assessment, and transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) to expand cardiac and ED trauma capabilities.
- New innovations in ultrasound enhance clinical efficiency and diagnostic confidence. Philips’ new echo imaging, quantification, and tele-health technologies help improve clinical confidence, automate repetitive tasks, and remotely and securely connect clinicians and patients. Philips brings together the EPIQ CVx and Affiniti CVx ultrasound platforms, TOMTEC advanced analysis, Collaboration Live remote decision support and Philips multi-modality image and information management solutions (IntelliSpace Cardiovascular) in an end-to-end workflow, for a fully integrated experience in echocardiography.
- Improved workflow and patient focus in image guided procedures. Philips will demonstrate the integration of its Interventional Hemodynamic System and market-leading portable Patient Monitor IntelliVue X3, providing advanced hemodynamic (blood flow) measurements at the tableside in the cath lab and continuous monitoring of key vital signs throughout the patient journey . The integration provides the opportunity for monitoring during image-guided procedures on the Philips Image Guided Therapy System – Azurion, improving workflow with comprehensive patient records that support timely clinical decision-making during interventional cardiology procedures and beyond.
- Cardiology informatics solutions drive actionable insights to enhance cardiology care. Philips Cardiovascular Informatics solution provides a consistent end-to-end intuitive workflow for easy access to a patient’s cardiovascular pathway. By connecting and integrating disparate clinical systems across the enterprise, the cardiology care team can make fast clinical decisions based on the data when and where it is needed. Philips cardiology informatics solutions, smart intelligent algorithms and predictive analytics work seamlessly to help optimize patient throughput.
