AMERSTERDAM, Feb. 1, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Royal Philips (NYSE: PHG, AEX: PHIA), a global leader in health technology, today announced its IntelliSpace Portal has been named 2018 Category Leader in the Advanced Visualization category in the 2018 Best in KLAS: Software & Services report. The KLAS report names the top-performing healthcare IT software suppliers in global markets as reported by healthcare providers. The Category Leader designation is reserved for vendor solutions that lead select market segments in which at least two products meet a minimum level of KLAS Konfidence.
IntelliSpace Portal is Philips' comprehensive, advanced data integration, visualization, and analysis platform to enhance diagnostic confidence. The latest iteration includes IntelliSpace Portal 10, which features machine learning capabilities to automatically learn from prior application usage to predict the series and data type on which pre-processing should be applied. The KLAS award recognizes Philips' ongoing commitment to helping drive improved treatment and outcomes, support appropriate imaging and treatment, simplify data and insight gathering, and reduce costs.
"Helping to empower improved operational efficiency and enhanced clinical excellence for radiologists – and our customers overall – is a critical piece of Philips' mission in supporting the move to value-based care," said Efrat Shefer, Business Leader, Imaging Clinical Applications (ICAP) at Philips. "We are honored to be recognized by KLAS and our customers in our efforts to drive this shift."
"Category Leader is more than a ranking. It is a recognition of vendors committed to delivering superior solutions," said Adam Gale, President of KLAS. "It gives voice to thousands of providers who are demanding better performance, usability and interoperability in healthcare technology."
KLAS interviews healthcare professionals each year about the products and services used by their respective organizations by using a standard quantitative evaluation. To further examine the most significant issues facing healthcare technology today, KLAS also creates supplemental evaluations that target a subset of KLAS' overall sampling. The data in this report comes from both evaluation types and was collected over the last 12 months.
The complete report is available for download.
