    Deeper insights. Advancing care.

     

    Clinical data flows continuously from our monitors, providing actionable and timely information to care providers when and where they need it. Yet the deep, rich clinical data sets available in physiological monitors remains largely untapped, and its potential unrealized.

     

    At Philips, we are committed to harnessing the power of this data to improve patient care – by changing practices, empowering clinicians to treat quickly and confidently, and supporting personalized and scalable care.

    Care is measured in outcomes and quality. The ability to stay ahead of the Quadruple Aim curve is compounded by more demanding patient populations, limited staff, and a deluge of data and technology. Philips CareArea Packages provide clinical education and services in a value-based, department focused way. Applying a structured approach, our experienced clinicians help assess your department, benchmark and identify root causes. We then provide guidance on best practices and improvement measures. And, we help deploy tailored and appropriately-scoped solutions to drive change.

    Address alarm management in the ICU

     

    Excessive non-actionable alarms in the ICU can quickly escalate to adversely impact patient care. Alarm fatigue results in frequent disruptions, staff stress, unnecessary workload, and inadequate reaction to critical alarms. Our alarm management program can help you regain control. Working with your ICU team we will help improve efficiency and restore patient and staff satisfaction.

     

    Following successful implementation of recommendations, positive results can be seen, as demonstrated by these aggregate findings:

    This whole process raised our consciousness about the importance of alarm management.”

    Supporting your future

    Our SmartPath lifecycle management solutions help you stay on technology's cutting edge with planned software upgrades. With a Software Maintenance Agreement (SMA), you can be confident that regardless of your current version, a software upgrade will bring the very latest Philips software features and functionality to your solution.

    The upgrade enables you to improve your facilities’ service and installation, and supports standardization, compliance, and improved OEM maintenance throughout your hospital.

     

    In addition, all SMAs now come with FocusPoint, an on-premise equipment system that connects to the Philips IT/cloud/support system, allowing access to biomedical staff and interactivity with Philips technical support services.

    By keeping our monitors at the most current revision, we can extend the life of that equipment from a capital procurement perspective.”
