Soon to be available in North America, Europe and Japan, the tablet will provide remote access to patient data, facilitating large-scale patient monitoring during health emergencies such as the Covid 19 pandemic.
As one of the world’s technology leaders, Royal Philips promises easy patient access to clinicians through its portable monitoring kit.
A GROUNDBREAKING SOFTWARE INTEGRATION
Philips IntelliVue XDS powers the medical tablet, allowing clinicians to continue caring for patients even outside the hospital setting.
Perfectly in line with today’s technological advances, the system runs via WIFI, eliminating the need for a central monitoring station, thus allowing rapid integration and development into existing medical structures and workflows.
Not limited to emergency situations, the Philips Medical Tablet is a complete solution as it can also be used as an extended screen to the IntelliVue monitor, allowing optimal display of patient information through medical decision support tools. It revolutionisses clinician interaction by acting as a stand-alone medical workspace that combines patient monitoring views with the hospital’s customised IT applications.
ACTIVELY CONTRIBUTING TO THE GROWING NEED FOR REMOTE MONITORING
Among the greatest challenges brought by COVID 19 in the health sector are the disproportionately high volume of patients in emergency rooms, the shortage of medical staff, reduced bed capacity and limited resources, especially for PPE.
To address these challenges, hospitals around the world are creating temporary COVID units outside the hospital or in isolated wards, making remote and easily transferable tools crucial to ensuring quality care.
By offering multiple IntelliVue monitors supported by the same network, the Philips Medical Tablet with XDS software allows clinicians to monitor multiple patients while reducing contact, ultimately improving patient and clinician safety.
A BROADER VISION
Royal Philips has focused on the big picture when it comes to the expansion of its healthcare technology services. The pandemic appears to have been the catalyst for its investments and development of integrated patient monitoring and connected telehealth solutions, leading the company to purchase medical device firm Capsule Technologies for $635 million from a private equity firm.
PHILIPS’ INNOVATIVE CONTRIBUTION TO THE HEALTH CRISIS
At a time when the need for improved and more efficient medical care is apparent, Pete Ziese, General Manager of Monitoring Analytics at Philips, confirmed the relevance of the IntelliVue XDS-equipped medical tablet that enables clinicians to address increasing workloads, security concerns and transitions to remote care environments with clinical decision support applications “at their fingertips”. Providing remote availability of critical patient data that enables healthcare professionals to make informed care decisions, wherever they are located.”
