Connected healthcare programs to transform care and lower costs

Philips and Banner expand partnership with a focus on end-to-end approach in imaging, patient monitoring and telehealth

 

 

Banner Health is one of the largest, nonprofit health care systems in the United States, and has always taken a long-term view of their business. Their approach has been to manage population health and keep people out of the health system to reduce costs while ensuring better patient outcomes.

 

Philips and Banner already have successful joint connected health programs such as the Intensive Ambulatory Care pilot. In this new endeavor, the two organizations will look to create best practices that enable Banner to improve the patient experience and, ultimately, transform healthcare for patients across the Southwest.

Headquartered in Arizona, Banner Health is one of the largest nonprofit health care systems in the country. The system owns and operates 28 acute-care hospitals, Banner Health Network, Banner – University Medicine, Banner Medical Group, long-term care centers, outpatient surgery centers and an array of other services, including family clinics, home care and hospice services, pharmacies and a nursing registry.

The agreement will also give Banner access to Philips solutions such as ‘PerformanceBridge Practice,’ which is a radiology practice management solution, in order to help drive operational efficiencies in the health network’s extensive inpatient and outpatient imaging capabilities. This new, value-based radiology toolset, delivered by Philips’ Radiology Solutions business, can help improve operational performance across the Banner enterprise.
