Connecting people, technology and data
As healthcare organizations continue to move toward value-based care, there is a growing need for intelligent solutions to help address the biggest challenges radiologists face in improving outcomes, simplifying data and insights gathering, lowering the cost of healthcare delivery, and enhancing patient and staff satisfaction. Philips' integrated portfolio of digital imaging systems, smart devices, informatics and services arm radiologists with the tools needed to overcome these barriers to break down the silos and deliver more seamless care.
"As radiologists navigate the road to value-based care, they face a simultaneous shift to a patient-centric model and a greater volume of cases," said Robert Cascella, Chief Business Leader Diagnosis & Treatment businesses for Royal Philips. "By addressing these burdens using artificial intelligence, Philips continues to develop new and intelligent technologies designed to augment the radiologist's expertise. Our ultimate goal is to enable them to obtain high quality images the first time."
Improving diagnosis, treatment and outcomes
