Connected care

As your trusted partner in connected care solutions, Philips was excited to show you how integrated, connected technologies can deliver a 360-degree patient view, enable more informed and confident clinical decision making, and ultimately inform patient care paths that meet them where they are. As part of this interactive experience, attendees answered questions around their biggest challenges. Here are the results*:

1. The greatest challenge to interoperability for my hospital is:

  • 9% Redundancy in IT backbone
  • 11% Handling the sheer number of connected devices
  • 26% Output data from connected devices is not standardized or normalized
  • 54% All of the above

2. What are the greatest challenges to care management your health system has faced outside the hospital?

  • 11% High patient utilization of emergency services post-discharge
  • 16% Reducing costly readmissions
  • 18% Staying connected to patients after discharge in order to monitor their progress
  • 54% All of the above

3. What issues prevent care teams at your health system from confidently making treatment decisions?

  • 9% Missing data
  • 16% Difficulty consolidating data
  • 19% Not seeing a full end-to-end view
  • 56% All of the above

4. What has been your most challenging issue as your health system works towards connected value-based care for patients at home?

  • 23% Building an aligned care pathway to manage patients at home with targeted conditions, like COPD
  • 24% Successfully aggregating data from different care settings
