New Global Partnership Emerges in Telehealth for Consumer Health and Professional Healthcare

Royal Philips — a global leader in health technology, and American Well — a leading U.S. telehealth provider — announced today the signing of a new strategic partnership to jointly deliver virtual care solutions around the world.

Through this technology partnership, the two companies will work together to embed American Well’s mobile telehealth services into an array of Philips solutions for both healthy consumers and patients with a medical need, spanning personal health & wellness, population health management, and clinical programs.

A first example is Philips uGrow parenting app that soon will embed telehealth services provided by American Well. The new partnership aims to provide a seamless consumer experience through solutions that empower people to better manage their health.

“Partnering with American Well to deliver highly personalized virtual care solutions to consumers and healthcare professionals fits Philips’ vision of 24/7, coordinated care across the health continuum – the right care delivered at the right time in the right place,” said Jeroen Tas, Chief Innovation & Strategy Officer at Philips. “American Well already collaborates with many of the largest insurers and healthcare providers in the U.S., offering great opportunities for joint business development with the aim to create a better patient experience in this important new area of digital healthcare delivery.”
