Northwell Health Boosts Patient Care with Philips Integrated Patient Monitoring Solutions

Royal Philips recently confirmed to MHW that Northwell Health, New York State’s largest healthcare provider, has improved clinical outcomes and patient satisfaction collaborating with Philips on a “comprehensive IT strategy.”

According to the details shared in an emailed statement, leveraging Philips Virtual Hospital Services portfolio – including eICU technology and a comprehensive Telestroke program – Northwell has seen a reduction in mortality in the ICU and improved access to life-saving stroke care, as well as increased patient satisfaction in the Emergency Department (ED) through a pilot program featuring the Philips IntelliVue Guardian with the wearable biosensor.

Northwell has aligned the missions of both the IT and clinical departments, directing best practices and enterprise change management to show how health systems can leverage integrated technology to better manage patient populations by bringing people, data and insights together in new ways. Through its collaboration with Philips, Northwell Health has achieved impressive clinical results, and has expanded into new care areas and disease-specific treatments, bringing the health system’s vision of a virtual hospital to life.

“We know that continual monitoring is critical to caregivers so they can detect early deterioration, and Northwell’s experience shows how innovative solutions enable hospitals to reach the quadruple aims of healthcare: Better clinical outcomes, lower costs and improved patient and caregiver satisfaction,: says Carla Kriwet, CEO Connected Care & Health Informatics at Philips.
