Improving the lives of 3 billion people a year by 2025.


Breaking boundaries. Improving healthcare.


It’s true that healthcare has come a long way. Yet even the most advanced healthcare networks can be more integrated so that data is available and decisions can be made. That’s why Philips has longstanding collaborations with U.S.-based health systems, government, academia and industry partners to develop solutions that connect people, technology and data across the care continuum. At Philips, we believe health knows no bounds. And neither should healthcare.
