“NYU Langone has always been a trailblazer when it comes to technology adoption and providing world-class patient care. With the adoption of these technologies, they are forefront of leveraging a new enterprise monitoring platform and business model to help enable a better patient experience, improved staff productivity and reduced cost of care,” said Julia Strandberg, Chief Business Leader, Connected Care for Philips. “At the same time, they understand the real value of technology allowing clinicians to focus on what matters most – providing the best care possible to their patients.”
As part of its focus on data access through consolidated technology systems, NYU Langone is committed to unifying patient monitoring systems, simplifying workflows, and creating standards-based interoperability with its electronic medical record (EMR).
With this new partnership, NYU Langone Health will be adopting Philips’ IntelliSite Pathology solution, enterprise informatics, and AI-enabled diagnostic imaging technologies such as the Philips Lumify Handheld Ultrasound. NYU Langone will also utilize the Philips Patient Information Center iX and the Philips Capsule Medical Device Information Platform (MDIP) to simplify workflows and unlock the power of data.
MDIP is designed to bring together disparate data from medical devices and systems into a single unified view. When deployed with Philips PIC iX in a predictable Enterprise Monitoring as a Services (EMaaS) subscription model, the combined solutions are intended to provide seamless integration across the network.
Led by NYU Langone’s Chief Scientific Officer, Executive Vice President and Vice Dean for Science Dr. Dafna Bar-Sagi alongside Philips Chief Innovation & Strategy Officer Shez Partovi, the two organizations have also deepened their existing partnership through the development of new research programs initially focused on a roadmap for the future of digital pathology, patient monitoring, ultrasound, and MRI.
“Our access to transformative health care technologies developed by Philips will provide our researchers with countless opportunities to advance knowledge and develop new diagnostic and treatment modalities that enhance patient care, safety and outcomes,” said Bar-Sagi.
 As an institution, NYU Langone consistently receives top-quality and safety accolades from independent arbiters of patient care. NYU Langone is recognized by Vizient, Inc., as the No. 1 comprehensive academic medical center and the No. 1 ambulatory system for quality and safety in the United States. The health system has 10 clinical specialties ranked in the top 10 nationally by U.S. News & World Report, including the No. 1 ranking for neurology and neurosurgery. NYU Langone also consistently receives “A” ratings on the Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade and five-star ratings for safety, quality, and patient experience from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS).
