Royal Philips, Andover, Mass, demonstrated its HealthSuite Digital Platform at the Dreamforce 2014 conference in San Francisco, October 13–16. According to the company, its presence at the event underscores its “commitment to connecting care from hospital to home with digital solutions and services that span the health continuum.”
As part of a joint strategy with Salesforce.com, the host of the Dreamforce event, Philips is working to create a suite of open application programming interfaces (APIs) that can be used by developers to create innovative applications for hospitals and health systems. A Developers Toolkit is expected to be available in early 2015.
“Our collaboration on an open, cloud-based healthcare platform and the development of our HealthSuite Digital Platform are well under way, and Dreamforce is the perfect venue to highlight our connected technology solutions offering new opportunities for improved health management,” said Jeroen Tas, CEO, Healthcare Informatics Solutions and Services, Philips. “Philips is the only health technology company with a range of professional and consumer offerings that can combine clinical and personal health data across the continuum to encourage prevention and healthy living, to speed diagnosis and treatment, and to enable better recovery and home care.”
