Research programs

As well as being able to deliver outstanding individual products, we offer an integrated proposition across the health continuum, connecting providers and consumers for better outcomes and higher productivity. More and more we are partnering with customers in new business models; no longer selling products in a ‘transactional’ manner but through long-term strategic partnerships. This drives a need for Philips to provide integrated offerings across our businesses. For this reason, we have moved from a holding company model, with independently run businesses, towards a more integrated approach.
