“This means tapping into telehealth and increasing access to specialist healthcare professionals who are in short supply and ensuring cohesive collaboration among those experts.”
Bringing the region, a step closer to patient-centred care and enabling access to specialists regardless of location
During Arab Health 2021, Philips will showcase transformative healthcare innovations and workflows that facilitate communication and collaboration between technologists and experts – now and in the future, addressing the quadruple aim of better health outcomes, improved patient and staff experience, while lowering the cost of care; including:
- Digital Pathology with remote and real-time collaboration: The use of an enterprise-wide digital pathology platform contributes to earlier and more accurate detection and tissue assessment. In addition, a digital pathology solution can lead to a decrease in the rate of interpretation errors, especially in difficult and diagnostically rare diseases conducted by non-subspecialized pathologists. It can also save time for pathologists in administration tasks such as matching slides and paperwork to cases, transporting cases, error correction, and retrieving prior records. This frees up capacity for a higher volume of patients to receive the access to care they need. Philips offers tools and resources for every stage of the pathology process, for a comprehensive, end-to-end experience - designed to let you review and collaborate anytime possible. Experiencing a digital workflow that empowers diagnosticians by eliminating inefficiencies and enabling collaboration like never before – to unlock the full possibilities of precision medicine.
- Tele-ICU: Tele-ICUs such as the the Philips eICU enables clinicians to interact with staff at the bedside and consult on individual care – even from offsite. This means one centralized specialized critical care team can manage large number of ICU locations, and exchange health information electronically, in real time. This offers a supplement – not a replacement – to the bedside team, by creating added support structures to increasingly scarce clinical resources.
- Tele-ultrasound: Philips Lumify with Reacts, the world’s first truly integrated tele-ultrasound solution, brings professionals, places and patients together to make a real difference. Key to future care delivery and collaboration, it enables live communication for better support and more meaningful collaborations, at the point of care and when needed most. Philips Lumify point-of-care ultrasound has become an indispensable tool in the global response to COVID-19, according to doctors on the front lines. The award-winning tablet-based ultrasound solution has been helping clinicians in the Emergency Department (ED) and the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) make faster, more refined care decisions during the pandemic, while also helping manage the risk of spreading COVID-19 within their departments.
- Virtual Care : Philips’ telehealth solutions and capabilities enable customers to extend where, when and how care is delivered - because location should never limit patient care. Virtual care can help to improve efficiency while maintaining quality of care and optimizing staff allocation and productivity through data-driven insights.
