In addition to a focus on telehealth, Philips will also be showcasing innovations in radiology which is a key focus area if the goals of value-based care are to be achieved. Improved and streamlined workflows is perhaps the most potent area for improvement in radiology today. Powerful workflow solutions improve experiences and outcomes across the imaging enterprise. These solutions integrate into the daily environment, turn data into actionable insights and orchestrate the delivery of the right care in the right sequence at the right time. The Philips Radiology Workflow helps drive clinical and operational efficiency across all phases of the diagnostic enterprise.
Philips will introduce its newly launched Spectral CT 7500, which was designed for first-time-right diagnosis and provides a simple workflow with spectral results 100% of the time. This means that every scan offers both conventional and 100% spectral results, which can translate into a 34% reduction in time to diagnosis, a 25% reduction in repeat scans and a 30% reduction in follow-up scans as part of instituting workflows that deliver better results.
The immediate potential and impact of these innovations are accelerated by current partnerships. For instance du, from Emirates Integrated Telecommunications Company (EITC), and Philips signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) earlier this month to collaboratively accelerate the critical, data-driven transformation of healthcare in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) in support of the Dubai Health Strategy 2021. This first-of-its-kind partnership will focus collective efforts on realizing value-based care by improving patient and healthcare professionals’ experiences, delivering better health outcomes, at a lower cost of care across the healthcare continuum.
In addition, Philips is part of the Department of Health Abu Dhabi’s Healthcare Innovation Program which aims to make technological advancement progress faster than ever before – this partnership allows for collaboration with healthcare providers, payers, and regulators to shape the future of the region’s healthcare system.
“As a global leader in health technology, we recently celebrated 130 years of innovation, collaboration, and social responsibility with a purpose to improve the lives of 2.5 billion people a year by 2030 through meaningful innovation. We are excited to co-create what the future looks like - bringing together solutions that have the power to transform care to a precision, outcomes-based practice that improve lives and experiences across the region,” added Vincenzo Ventricelli.
