Holistic patient overview for better outcomes

Philips will be showcasing the interoperability of Philips MDIP (Medical Device Information Platform) Integration with Philips Patient Information Center iX (PIC iX), providing hospitals with a first-of-its-kind, comprehensive patient overview. Interoperability between MDIP and PIC iX enables the capture of streaming data flowing freely from a variety of medical device manufacturers on an open, scalable, secure platform.

By disseminating this information, clinicians have a unified view of the patient that delivers enhanced clinical insights and actionable alerts to help empower caregivers to make treatment recommendations confidently throughout the hospital’s digital environment.

Also on display will be Philips’ Visual Patient Avatar; a revolutionary new monitoring solution that translates complex patient data into a straightforward, easy-to-understand visual display. Visual Patient Avatar is a clinical decision support tool designed in partnership with anesthesiologists to help improve situational awareness in critical care environments.

A simplified monitor view of the patient's body and vital signs helps care providers to recall and process critical data more quickly, efficiently, and confidently, allowing them to focus on what matters most and prepare for what may come next.

Philips will also feature its PageWriter TC35 Cardiograph, a compact solution that provides advanced tools to enhance workflow, facilitate quality ECG reports, and support clinical decisions. The seamless design of the new compact lead-set means fewer connections for staff to manage.

The MR 5300 is the industry’s first and still the only fully-sealed 1.5T (Tesla) magnet to be introduced in a commercially available MRI scanner - designed for sustainable imaging at lower site costs without image quality or clinical compromises. In addition, a variety of time saving features are included across Philips’ entire portfolio including AI-driven technologies in the MR5300 with BlueSeal Magnet, automating the most complex clinical and operational tasks, resulting in patient set-up in under a minute and the reduction of change-over time between exams by up to 30 per cent.
