Acute Patient Management
Dynamic care demands dynamic solutions

Acute patient management solutions

Fine-tune care for every patient at scale with continuous patient monitoring, acute care workflows and predictive insights.

    Connect data across settings

    Your acute care teams depend on actionable patient data when and where it’s needed to fine-tune treatment decisions. When that data is unavailable or unclear, not only are clinical outcomes at risk, but the inefficiency can also trickle down to negatively impact operational and financial goals.

    Acute patient management from Philips provides continuous clinical surveillance, advanced interoperability and predictive insights across care settings. With access to critical data at all points of care, caregivers can easily stratify high-risk patients, make decisions together and fine-tune care with precision for every patient.

    Benefits and outcomes

    Alleviate clinical inefficiency with standardized, interoperable acute patient management that can help care teams:

    • Gain anytime, anywhere visibility to all patients
    • Be notified of early signs of patient deterioration
    • Proactively fine-tune treatment
    • Rapidly adapt and scale patient monitoring
    • Collaborate during care transitions and across care settings

    • Identify insights or indicators that could impact treatment decisions
    • Close communication gaps between teams
    • Never miss insights or indicators that could impact treatment decisions

    Why now?

    • Continued shift to value-based care
    • Increase in older, sicker and more medically complex patient populations creating more unpredictable transitions and unplanned admissions
    • Increase in care team cognitive overload and burnout
    • Need for real-time data to plan resources and respond with correct course of care
    • Reimbursement penalties tied to care quality and readmission rates
    • Increase in demand for secure, scalable and interoperable systems
