Enterprise partnerships

A shared,

enterprise-wide

commitment to

patient monitoring

 

 

MUSC Health partners with Philips to provide enterprise-wide excellence in patient monitoring in order to deliver outstanding, patient-centered care

 

 

As one of the leading academic health centers in the U.S., the Medical University of South Carolina Health system is committed to setting the standard for patient-centered care across all of its services. Their decision to partner with Philips to deliver enterprise-wide excellence in patient monitoring supports their goal of delivering exceptional, integrated patient care.

 

The 8-year, USD 36 million strategic partnership aims to transform and improve patient monitoring for over a million patients a year. Through this arrangement, MUSC Health will have access to the most advanced monitoring technology and support services. As a result, the health system will benefit from better collection and management of patient data in order to provide more informed, proactive diagnostic and treatment services and help reduce complications, adverse events, length of stay, and readmissions.

 

The alliance is based on an enterprise managed services model through which Philips will install, integrate, and manage patient monitoring systems (including consumables) and software, as well as providing maintenance, training, and consulting services within a structured monthly payment model.

 

MUSC Health is the clinical enterprise of the Medical University of South Carolina. It comprises a 750-bed Medical Center, the MUSC College of Medicine, and the physicians practice plan. MUSC Health serves patients across South Carolina through four hospitals and 100+ outreach sites. Founded in 1824, MUSC is a premiere academic medical center, with world-class physicians and groundbreaking research and technology.
