Royal Philips, Amsterdam, the Netherlands, announced its participation in the European Congress of Radiology (ECR) virtual event, March 3-7, 2021, where the company will feature new and enhanced diagnostic and interventional solutions that further expand its Radiology Workflow Suite, connecting data, technology, and people across the imaging enterprise. In furthering its commitment to workflow optimization, Philips will present how connected, smart systems and simpler, more efficient workflows can help reduce variability and staff workload, increase productivity, and enhance the patient and provider experience.

Integrated, Smart Solutions for More Confident Decision-Making

The effective capture, analysis, and reporting of data is at the core of modern diagnosis. At ECR 2021, Philips will showcase integrated, end-to-end solutions designed to provide more informed and confident decision-making. With the challenges of COVID-19 adding to existing stress on imaging departments, Philips has furthered its commitment to a “systems view” of imaging, focused on the specific challenges that patients, staff, clinicians, and administrators experience at each phase of the imaging pathway. Innovative solutions address system-wide challenges through the integration, digitization, and virtualization of the radiology workflow.

“By combining the power of imaging with insights from integrated diagnostics and AI, we can deliver diagnostic studies right the first time and optimize workflows to support staff efficiency, operational excellence, and continuous performance improvement,” says Kees Wesdorp, chief business leader, precision diagnosis, at Philips. “At ECR, we will further demonstrate how Philips’ radiology workflow solutions are integrating complex data and analytics capabilities to inform timely, contextual diagnostic decision-making to guide caregivers and patients through more precise, personalized care pathways for better patient outcomes. This is the real promise of precision diagnosis.” 

New Solutions Supporting Philips Radiology Workflow Suite at ECR

Philips will debut new technologies supporting its vendor-agnostic Radiology Workflow Suite at ECR, alongside its portfolio of clinically optimized diagnostic and interventional solutions. Philips Radiology Workflow Suite helps drive clinical and operational efficiency across all phases of the diagnostic enterprise, from scheduling and preparation, to image acquisition and data interpretation, to reporting and care pathway selection and treatment. 

New and enhanced solutions supporting Philips Radiology Workflow Suite include: Philips Collaboration Live for Tele-Ultrasound, Philips Engage, Philips Clinical Pathways for Lung and Prostate Cancer, and Philips Radiology Operations Command Center. 

Philips takes a holistic approach to integrating AI across its Precision Diagnosis portfolio, both for image processing and interpretation and for image acquisition, where automated and AI-enabled ‘smart workflows’ can increase efficiency and boost clinical confidence for system operators. Philips’ commitment to integrating data, AI, and analytics solutions supports its growing ecosystem approach, benefitting customers and the patients they serve. At ECR Philips is also showcasing innovations to enhance productivity and clinical confidence in diagnostic X-ray. 

Spotlight on Innovative Diagnostic Systems and Interventional Solutions

In addition to the new technology introductions supporting the Radiology Workflow Suite during ECR, Philips will showcase the latest innovations across its comprehensive portfolio of diagnostic and interventional solution. These include:

Precise Suite with AI for the Philips Incisive CT. The solution combines advances in AI reconstruction techniques and camera-based workflow, for motion-free cardiac scans and interventional procedures. Philips Incisive enhances the CT experience for patients and staff while controlling costs across the organization to help meet the most pressing financial, clinical and operational goals.

Philips enterprise imaging solutions, including its Vendor-Neutral Image Viewer (Vue Motion), KLAS Research’s 2021 Best in KLAS Universal Viewer (Imaging) award winner, and Philips Advanced Visualization Workspace, IntelliSpace Portal 12.  

Philips’ next-generation Azurion image-guided therapy platform marks an important step forward in optimizing clinical and operational lab performance and expanding the role of image-guided interventions in the treatment of patients.  An industry first, the advanced image-guided therapy platform now integrates control of imaging, IVUS (Intravascular Ultrasound), physiology, hemodynamic and informatics applications, as well as intuitive control of the gantry, at the tableside, allowing clinicians to control all compatible applications from a single touchscreen and helping to decide, guide, treat and confirm the right care in real time.
