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.
