Asset, workflow and clinical practice management to help you perform and continously improve
In order to create optimal healing environments and streamlined workflows while mastering technology, addressing staff satisfaction and driving value-based care, you need to improve both patient outcomes and the patient experience.
Philips offers on-site clinical education and support to create family-centered care environments that are efficient and calm. We help you reduce nuisance alarms in critical care units, catch warning signs of patient deterioration in general care areas, improve family-centered care in the NICU and reduce cases and severity of delirium in critically ill patients.
Empower clinical staff to deliver an improved patient experience.
Offerings based on your needs*
Philips Clinical Specialists are technicians, doctors and nurses who deeply understand clinical environments and how to get the most out of Philips Patient Monitoring technology. They leverage this expertise in working alongside their counterparts in your hospital, in these areas:
Clinical education and training
We use data-driven analysis to inform ways to make clinical environments more advantageous to staff and patients. You can schedule education sessions as they become relevant to you, strengthening your knowledge and honing your skills over time.
Alarm noise in critical care environments is a top contributor to medical errors while causing unnecessary stress and burden on caregivers and patients. Using a proven, data-driven approach, our Clinical Specialists work alongside you to reduce nuisance alarms and support a more stress-free care environment.
Early recognition of patient deterioration
Identifying a worsening patient requires the ability to recognize subtle changes in their condition. An automated early warning scoring solution can help you do this. We help you integrate workflows that leverage rich and contextual patient information and clinical decision support – so you can make confident decisions about care, fast.
Neurodevelopmental care in the NICU
We support caregivers in their work to create a NICU that is family-centric and that promotes babies’ comfort. Our training and workshops are designed to help your care team implement clinically proven measures that affect preemies most, with a focus on addressing newborns’ physiological and developmental needs.
We aim to support hospitals in reducing the incidence and severity of delirium in critically ill patients, enhancing the recovery process and reducing length of stay. The components Philips delivers are part of the VitalMinds delirium management bundle and include light and sound management, a personalized light therapy system to provide circadian-effective lighting, as well as training and consulting services for delirium management.
*These services are market dependent. Please contact your local Philips representative for more information.
