Digital Healthcare Gadgets from Philips
Philips, a leading healthcare technology company and salesforce.com, the world’s #1 CRM company, team up to drive industry transformation in collaborative care management between patients and healthcare professionals with new platform
The HealthSuite digital platform represents a new era in connected health care for both patients and providers, as healthcare continues to move outside the hospital walls, and into our homes and everyday lives.
HealthSuite, supported by salesforce.com, is an open, cloud-based platform, which collects, compiles and analyzes clinical and other data from multiple devices and sources.
Health systems, care providers and individuals can access data on personal health, specific patient conditions and entire populations—so care can be more personalized and people more empowered in their own health, wellbeing and lifestyle. Connecting solutions from the hospital to the home, we can enable a path to healthier living and wellbeing, throughout the health continuum.
HealthSuite data is accessed through eCareCompanion and eCareCoordinator—our cloud- based, mobile apps designed for both patient and provider.
Here is some information from the latest announcement
The Philips HealthSuite digital platform is an open, cloud-based platform of services, capabilities and tools that allows Philips and its partners to create the next generation of connected health innovations. It interoperates seamlessly with other cloud-based technologies such as the Salesforce Health Cloud and Amazon Web Services. The platform will also support professional healthcare solutions, personal coaching apps and Philips consumer devices, as well as those from other open platforms. In addition, the platform will support population health analytics, giving clinicians a better view into how to support society, from understanding if a baby is hitting development milestones, to managing patients with chronic diseases like diabetes, to understanding the unique needs of older adults and how to empower them.
“By connecting both consumers and their medical devices in the cloud, not only do we enable consumers to take greater control of their personal health journey with just-in-time analyses and advice through personalized health apps, but we can also provide clinicians with better quality information in a more manageable way, so they know when to intervene in your healthcare,” said Liat Ben-Zur, SVP, Digital Technology and Connected Propositions at Philips. “Our rich heritage in consumer electronics and healthcare allows us to break down the technology barriers between personal devices, hospitals and your home to take the Internet of Things to a whole new, more meaningful level. Ultimately, allowing people to live healthier, fuller lives.”
