About enterprise partnerships with shared accountability

Anatomy of an enterprise partnership


An enterprise partnership engagement with Philips is a comprehensive, end-to-end service solution, enabled by specific business models and aligned to the strategic initiatives and operational objectives of our customer.  Within this collaborative framework, we work side by side with our partner institutions over the long term to help them manage complexity, reduce costs, mitigate risk and advance innovation. 

 

We engage our community of experts — in education, design, strategy, planning, research, data and analytics — to help deliver near-term results and lasting transformation. All this is delivered within a business model that retains broad flexibility and choice for the provider with the benefits of a predictable, long-term payment structure. 

 

We offer a variety of business models and organizational structures to support specific health system goals. They range from modality-specific Managed Equipment Services (MES) agreements to the more comprehensive, innovation-focused Enterprise Partnerships and consortium models, such as Public-private Partnerships (PPP or P3) and Design/Build/Manage/Finance (DBFM).  Options are highly customizable, based on the needs of the health system.

Business framework


Predictability you can lean on and leap from.
The reality of balancing competing priorities shouldn’t be a reason to put transformation on hold; it should be a reason to accelerate it. A strategic path, flexible business model and predictable financial model can bring you into current state while you get ready to leap ahead.
Scope of engagement

The scope of each partnership can include a wide range of services and support to transfer non-core functional activities and risk away from the hospital, including technology, services, operations, innovation and financing. Programs can be easily scaled to manage multi-vendor technology in specific service lines or across the care delivery system.

Operating model


There is power in a shared vision. If you ground that power in an organizing structure that promotes collaboration and accountability and then share it across multidisciplinary teams, you can build a mutual trust and performance culture that ensures the way you work is as dynamic and sustainable as the results you deliver. That’s the way we operate.
Dedicated on-site staff

Integrated governance

Integrated governance

Through an integrated governance and operating structure, we strive for continued alignment across the scope of the partnership. Formal oversight from senior leaders from both Philips and the hospital ensures both parties are performing according to the goals and terms of the agreement.
Shared accountability

Our operating model establishes joint responsibility for planning specifications, selection, procurement, upgrading, replacement, and staff training for all equipment in scope. We can expand our operational competencies to include systems integration, clinical consulting, facilities design and planning and advanced education to achieve increased efficiencies.
