What is the HealthSuite Digital Platform?

The Health Suite Digital Platform is an open, cloud-based healthcare platform that will support data collection across the spectrum from clinical to consumer lifestyle, allowing for integration and analysis of ‘big’ data from multiple sources worldwide, including electronic medical records, diagnostic and treatment information, images, reports, notes, wearables and Philips connected consumer lifestyle products. The platform will utilize Philips’ clinical data models and medical device interoperability and is designed to be highly scalable with built-in comprehensive data security and privacy/permission control.

Why is the HealthSuite Digital Platform important?

The Health Suite Digital Platform will enhance clinical decision making and care coordination (collaboration and workflow). It will allow caregivers to improve patient outcomes by allowing them to collaborate closely in support of their patients by enabling patients to take a more active role in managing their personal health across the ‘health continuum’ from self-care and prevention, to diagnosis and treatment through recovery and wellness. It also enables a vibrant ecosystem of third party created applications (via SDKs and API’s) to allow for open innovation in both clinical and consumer realms. This will support a patient-centric transformation of both professional healthcare delivery and continuous personal health.
