Royal Philips announced its founding sponsorship of BRI Network’s inaugural Command Center Summit: Connected Care Delivery (July 15-16, 2019, Chicago, US), alongside the summit’s other founding sponsor TeleTracking Technologies, Inc.
As care delivery becomes more complex, finding ways to coordinate patient care across the health continuum, from healthy living and prevention, to diagnosis, treatment and home care, is one of the most important challenges facing hospitals and health systems. They therefore need to look at new, more efficient ways to increase access to care and improve care collaboration. Centralized care is emerging as an innovative way of transforming healthcare operations by generating real-time, actionable analytics and pro-active recommendations to guide each patient’s progression based on their clinical condition. By doing so, it helps to ensure that patients are always transitioned to the most appropriate care setting.
During the upcoming ‘Command Center Summit: Connected Care Delivery’, Philips and TeleTracking will show how the command center or clinical operations center approach to centralized care helps to provide the real-time clinical and operational insights needed to predict and manage demand and proactively assign resources, thereby enabling the seamless delivery of care and enhancing the patient and care provider experience.
“Philips is uniquely positioned to integrate and analyze clinical data across our own solutions and those from third parties, both inside and outside the hospital, to generate real-time actionable analytics, and proactive recommendations to help that patients are monitored 24/7 and timely transitioned to the most appropriate care setting,” said Jeroen Tas, Chief Innovation and Strategy Officer at Philips. “Connected care is positively impacting patient care operations, and we look forward to teaming up with TeleTracking in this unique Command Center Summit to provide health systems with the insights and tools they need to impact the Quadruple Aim of improving patient outcomes, enhancing patient and staff experiences, and lowering the cost of care.”
“TeleTracking has spent nearly three decades studying and addressing the issues of inefficiency in healthcare, and we are very pleased to co-sponsor this event with Philips, an important collaborator in our efforts,” said Christopher Johnson, President of TeleTracking. “We have developed a state-of-the-art operating platform with a focus on providing the best possible experience for patients and caregivers, bringing visibility to underlying data that provides important hindsight into what has happened, so we can learn from it; insight into what is happening, so we can respond to it; and foresight into what will happen, so we can prepare for it.”
Philips has a leading position in patient monitoring (e.g. central patient monitoring), enterprise telehealth (e.g. the centralized tele-ICU), predictive analytics (e.g. for monitoring at-risk patients in their homes), and population health management (e.g. patient stratification and identification of at-risk patient groups). This expertise enables Philips to provide hospitals and health systems with Clinical Operations Center solutions for effectively managing patients across the health continuum. By helping to optimize admissions, in-hospital transfers, and back-to-home transfers based on each individual patient’s clinical needs, they enable hospitals and healthcare systems to better predict demand and match capacity. At the heart of Philips’ Clinical Operations Center approach are advanced data management and adaptive intelligence technologies that support efficient evidence-based decision making.
Command Center Summit 2019
Over the course of two days, attendees will hear from hospitals with direct experience of establishing command centers in their organizations. Discussion threads will include how to make the business case for a command center; leveraging data to improve clinical outcomes; and designing a command center to optimize patient flow across the health continuum.
The presenters include hospital leaders from across the US. The summit also features a joint keynote address from Philips Chief Innovation and Strategy Officer Jeroen Tas, and Christopher Johnson, President of TeleTracking, who will share their thoughts on the significant benefits of a centralized approach to care and how the two companies are helping health systems to transform their operations both strategically and culturally.
