Our Approach
Home › Our Approach › Priorities › Connected Care

The Department of Veterans Affairs and U.S. Military Health Systems deliver healthcare for millions of people across the country. When active duty service members are deployed, that reach extends around the world. So how can both organizations ensure high-quality care when it’s needed most, no matter where a patient may be?

The answer is connected care. Having diagnostic, monitoring and clinical decision support solutions available at a remote site or in the hospital, and leveraging technology to share health data securely with doctors and nurses, allows you to communicate and deliver care wherever it may be needed.

Connecting care from point of injury through recovery

From the battlefield to the bedside, Philips innovations and technologies support the work of America’s service members around the world. Solutions such as Philips Lumify provide a high level of imaging on the battlefield. Certified airworthy by the U.S. Army in 2019, our Lumify technology can follow an injured service member from battlefield, to evacuation aircraft, to hospital – while enabling the ability to conduct portable ultrasounds in high definition. Once in a field hospital, Philips Monitoring technology can give doctors clear and accurate patient data for confident decision making.
