Why Operational Intelligence and why now ?

    Around the world, every health system had been struggling with rising costs, aging populations, chronic health challenges, legacy technology and overworked staff. While addressing many challenges, the digital transformation also brought its own challenges, from data and interoperability disconnects to knowledge shortages.

    Healthcare leaders have worked hard to redefine healthcare by moving to the value-based care model. We believe that adopting a more integrated, service-based healthcare model with a focus on behavioural change, that connects the silos and builds on relationships, technology and processes, could optimise spending and capabilities.

    What is Operational Intelligence?


    Operational Intelligence aims to combine people, processes and technology through a partnership.

    What began as an idea about how a hospital system and a technology provider could better work together has become a powerful new way of working for hundreds of Philips and healthcare professionals.

    How Operational Intelligence works

    Rather than operating as a sales organisation, when Philips Services & Solutions Delivery partners with a healthcare provider, we bring our Operational Intelligence approach to merge skills and capabilities. We can help you to become operationally intelligent. Working together can offer significant benefits to the efficiency of your operating model, combining processes, people and technology.

    Working as one: Our skills merge with yours for combined, continuous improvement.


    Operational Intelligence is about unlocking efficiencies in your processes. Opposite to "one size fits all," Operational Intelligence is about co-creation and tailored solutions that are right for you.


    Technology is an enabler; Operational Intelligence makes it both connected and interoperable by breaking down silos to provide a comprehensive, ongoing overview of how technology is required and be utilized (by humans and systems) now and in the future.
