Philips advances precision care with new releases of HealthSuite Interoperability and Enterprise Performance Analytics – PerformanceBridge

Amsterdam, Netherlands and Orlando, Florida, United States – Royal Philips (NYSE: PHG, AEX: PHIA), a global health technology leader, today announced its latest introductions to analytics and interoperability solutions at HIMSS22 Global Health Conference and Expo. Phillips HealthSuite Interoperability is a fully integrated, cloud-enabled health informatics platform to meet diverse workflow needs in the imaging enterprise. Philips Enterprise Performance Analytics – Performance Bridge – now provides operational insights and in-depth analytics beyond radiology to the cardiology department to improve efficiency and help improve efficiencies at the point of care. Both innovations are part of Philips’ portfolio of data management and interoperability solutions [1]an integrated and scalable suite of innovative technologies, analytics and professional services, designed to help healthcare providers continuously improve their performance.

“Building on our deep expertise in medical imaging and our knowledge of enterprise IT, this latest expansion to our portfolio of data management and interoperability solutions will help drive lasting change in imaging services with a increased efficiency and better outcomes for patients and staff,” said Kees Wesdorp, Chief Business Leader of Precision Diagnosis at Philips. “At HIMSS, we will showcase a highly customizable set of data-driven solutions, delivering continuous improvement to meet clinical and business performance metrics with real-time insights.

Advancing precision care with integrated data for meaningful insights
Every second, an exponential amount of health data is generated and mined to gain valuable insights. Today, around 30% of the world’s data volume is generated by the healthcare sector [2]. Successful health data integration is complicated, with multiple user interfaces, complex systems, and slow retrieval of clinically relevant information, which impede workflow efficiency and delay precision care. These challenges have been further exacerbated by COVID-19. At HIMSS, Philips will showcase how the company’s new portfolio of data management and interoperability solutions are designed to improve care planning and coordination with clinical and operational analytics to help improve workflow efficiency. work, patient and staff satisfaction and outcomes.

Vendor-independent solutions support imaging modality data on a common platform
The portfolio of data management and interoperability solutions comprises two essential components. At HIMSS, Philips will highlight HealthSuite Interoperability, a fully integrated, cloud-enabled healthcare IT platform to meet diverse workflow needs in the imaging enterprise, connecting third-party systems and enabling seamless data workflows to streamline workflow. ‘efficiency. This new version of HealthSuite Interoperability will enable Philips to provide integrated IT solutions to help improve clinical workflow, improve patient care and optimize business management.

The platform will support all relevant data types and formats, including DICOM (Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine) images, genomics, pathology, laboratory data, HL7 (Health Level Seven International) standards , formats and definitions for electronic health record message interchange and development, and Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources (FHIR) standards. HealthSuite interoperability will also support all major electronic medical record (EMR) vendors. Its clinical data repository also offers customers the ability to store and manage granular data, and can be used to create value-added solutions such as health image exchanges.

Expand beyond radiology to offer new cardiology analyzes to improve workflow
Philips data management and interoperability solutions also feature the company’s latest enhancements in Enterprise Performance Analysis – Performance Bridge extend operational knowledge and in-depth analytics beyond radiology to the cardiology department to improve efficiency and help improve efficiencies at the point of care. Philips Enterprise Performance Analytics – Performance Bridge – gives healthcare professionals access to near real-time service performance data through an easy-to-use interactive dashboard. His operational knowledge has helped improve the performance of several healthcare systems, including the Miami Cardiac and Vascular Institute, where 100% of staff surveyed said Performance Bridge Patient Flow apps saved them time in their workday and improved teamwork and communication. [3]. Additionally, Kootenai Health in Idaho leveraged near real-time insights from Performance Bridge to improve operations in its cath lab. Over 3 years, they documented an increase in radial access rates associated with fewer complications, including major bleeding and mortality, from 9% to 42%, while improving patient comfort and shortening recovery times. recovery. [4].

With these latest enhancements, cardiology departments now have access to critical metrics to support operational performance monitoring in an invasive procedural setting such as the interventional suite, providing data on procedure volumes, utilization of the room, the duration of the procedure and the turnaround time of the laboratory.

Cardiology departments can also access key metrics designed to support operational performance monitoring in a non-invasive procedural setting such as cardiac imaging suites, including echocardiography, with access to procedures, modality/machine usage, number of study types, and report turnaround time. . This new release further demonstrates Philips’ commitment to bringing together the right mix of services and tools to measure and monitor key areas of improvement to contribute to the continuous improvement of radiology and cardiology services to optimize operations, improve workflow efficiency and improve patient outcomes.
