Our approach

 

Philips always takes a patient-centred, collaborative approach to enable meaningful clinical and business transformation as we recognize the benefits of shared goals.

Our consultants work closely with clients as a cohesive project team to agree on project goals, scope, deliverables, timelines, and measurements of success. This collaboration supports more meaningful and sustainable improvements for our clients.

A foundation of data analytics

 

Philips believes that healthcare transformation should be based on data and data should support each phase of a consulting engagement and drive our recommendations. Our team analyses retrospective data to create and deliver data platforms and analytic approaches to help turn data into insights and actions.

 

We leverage a variety of data sources, research expertise, benchmarking, best practices, and tools to drive granular performance insights. Data sources include public data, client system data, aggregate Philips install base information, third-party data, and more.
