AMSTERDAM, Feb. 6, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Royal Philips (NYSE: PHG, AEX: PHIA), a global leader in health technology, today announced it has expanded its IntelliSpace Enterprise Edition, which combines Philips Radiology, Cardiology portfolios and PerformanceBridge, to now include the new IntelliSpace Precision Medicine Oncology, IntelliSpace Precision Medicine Genomics and IntelliSpace Exchange solutions. Being showcased at the Healthcare Information Management Systems Society (HIMSS) 2019 annual event in Orlando, U.S., the enhanced integration builds on the existing suite of offerings from IntelliSpace Enterprise Edition to provide an enterprise-wide health informatics solution enabling health systems to grow and transform. With this latest expansion of IntelliSpace Enterprise Edition, health systems now have access to advanced technology solutions to help reduce costs, improve patient and staff satisfaction and transform towards value-based care.
Precision medicine has great potential for individualized diagnoses and treatment for cancer patients. However, due to the increasing number of complex data sources needed to leverage it effectively, clinicians need tools to help them seamlessly aggregate all key data to provide a clear, intuitive view of a patient's condition. With the latest additions to the solution, IntelliSpace Enterprise Edition is designed to enable the seamless flow of data, information enterprise management and improved care, combining Radiology, Cardiology and growing towards Precision Medicine.
"In the constantly evolving health IT landscape, we're dedicated to working with leading hospital organizations like CarolinaEast, to provide them the most advanced technology and adaptive intelligence to manage vast amounts of patient-generated data to help drive precision diagnosis," said Carla Kriwet, Chief Business Leader of Connected Care at Philips. "With the additional capabilities of IntelliSpace Enterprise Edition, clinicians at CarolinaEast have access to data from disparate sources – including integrated information within the EHR – and predictive analytics, to help drive better informed care decisions."
