June 8, 2015

Seattle, Washington – Philips Respironics, a business of Royal Philips (NYSE: PHG, AEX: PHIA), will showcase its latest portfolio of sleep-disordered breathing solutions June 8-10 at SLEEP 2015, a joint meeting of the American Academy of Sleep Medicine and the Sleep Research Society. Philips is building the next generation of sleep products and services that span the care continuum, enabling healthcare professionals to make better use of information, and enhancing compliance to therapy through patient engagement.

 

“Our solutions bring together the right clinical therapies, sleep masks and data analytics in order to create a more comfortable and engaging patient experience and to achieve enhanced clinical efficiency,” said Teofilo Lee-Chiong, M.D., Chief Medical Liaison, Philips. “This year’s SLEEP conference will showcase the next evolution of Philips’ sleep solutions. We will share our successes in helping health professionals and providers streamline high-touch models of medical care to maximize the benefits that patients receive from using our technology.”

 

Leveraging the power of the HealthSuite Digital Platform (HSDP), an open and interoperable cloud-based IT structure to support the secure collection, analysis and sharing of health related data, Philips is ushering its customers into a new era in collaborative, connected care while empowering patients to take a more active role in their personal health.

 

Philips sleep-disordered breathing portfolio connects the provider and the patient at every point along the care journey, from diagnosis, through therapy compliance and ongoing use. It is designed to meet today’s industry challenges by:

·         Driving increased patient adherence

·         Increasing operational and staff efficiencies

·         Increasing revenues through optimum patient care

 

At SLEEP 2015, Philips will display its new solutions in home sleep testing, PAP therapy, masks, and programs that enhance patient engagement, boost compliance rates and improve long-term care. These solutions, part of Philips’ The ANSWER three-phase approach to sleep therapy, work together as a seamless, connected system to address the key aspects in the sleep patient’s journey from set-up, to compliance, through ongoing patient management. Recent additions to Philips’ sleep portfolio include:

 

·         Alice NightOne – A home sleep disorder diagnostic system, Alice NightOne offers lab- quality test results from the patient’s home. Fully compatible with the Philips Somnolyzer scoring solution, sleep technicians can read the results from the Alice NightOne and determine a score in 50-85 percent less time and with great accuracy[1], speeding time to diagnosis and treatment.

·         Amara View full-face mask – A minimal contact, full face mask, Amara View’s under-the-nose design prevents red marks, discomfort and irritation on the nose. It also offers the widest field of vision of leading full face masks and allows patients to wear their glasses, read and watch TV while wearing their mask[2].

·         Pico nasal mask - Designed to maximize comfort and effectiveness, Pico is the smallest and lightest traditional[3] mask available on the market to treat OSA, making minimal contact with the face, while still providing a tight seal.
