Philips and salesforce.com team up to reshape healthcare delivery
Imagine an open, cloud-based, health platform with apps covering the continuum of care – from self-care and prevention, to diagnosis and treatment, through recovery and wellness. That’s the vision behind our new alliance with salesforce.com. It’s an idea whose time has come.
“With this strategic alliance, Philips is making great strides to deliver real-time, digital healthcare solutions,” said Frans van Houten, Chief Executive Officer of Royal Philips.
Move fast and be bold
Speed is the new currency for business and healthcare is no exception. Connecting MRIs to X-ray machines and patient monitors means the possible sharing of critical data. This data can be used to facilitate on demand, real-time collaboration between clinicians and patients, from the hospital to the home.
Our plan is to develop a cloud-based healthcare informatics platform with open APIs and SDKs, enabling collaboration and workflow, as well as integration of data from multiple sources worldwide.
