Philips is a leader in the population health management (PHM) solutions industry when it comes to cross-vertical deployment needs by our “most advanced PHM customers.”
The KLAS PHM report for 2017 rates us as a top-five platform for the core functionality of comprehensive data aggregation.
We’ve been aggregating data from disparate EMRs within a health system and interfacing our functionalities to provide depth of deployment and interoperability for more than a decade now, and today provide clinicians with solutions to care for more than 40 million patients by moving up to 400 million data points per day. Along the way our customers have secured hundreds of millions of dollars in value-based care payments each year.
For the first time since KLAS began its health IT evaluations of PHM platforms in 2013 – evaluations done strictly by in-depth customer interviews – this year KLAS is publishing two separate PHM vendor reports. This speaks to the importance PHM functionality has toward meeting value-based care models, understanding and managing entire patient populations and of course improving outcomes and lowering costs.
This first report, Part 1 as KLAS calls it, is entitled “Validating Adoption of PHM Functionality.”
To fully understand what that means and how we have met these cross-vertical expectations in the view of our customers, a little history is in order.
