Stock quotes in this article: PHG

















ANDOVER, Mass., Feb. 21, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --  Royal Philips (NYSE: PHG AEX: PHIA) today announced a key milestone in its 15-year alliance with Georgia Regents Medical Center (GRMC) with the installation of Philips IntelliSpace PACS version 4.4, a single, integrated clinical IT platform that allows clinicians to access a patient's complete imaging history from any department across the care continuum. The system will not only provide clinicians with a more holistic view of a patient's health, but will also enable GRMC to extend access to imaging data to its more remote regional care facilities. The unique managed service delivery model of Philips IntelliSpace PACS encompasses total cost of ownership, simplifies IT operations and provides built-in flexibility, scalability and interoperability.

"The role of technology is to ease the burden on clinicians and allow them to focus on what truly matters – patient care," said James V. Rawson, MD, FACR, Chief of Radiologic Services at Georgia Regents Medical Center. "This new Picture Archiving and Communication System from Philips enables us to store, access, and review everything from old X-ray films to the most advanced digital images in all modalities, including PET, CT, MRI, and ultrasound. Having a patient's complete medical history and images incorporated into the electronic medical record (EMR) and readily available will improve patient outcomes and lower costs."

The pilot installation at GRMC started with radiology and will expand to cardiology, obstetrics and all other imaging services over the next few months.

Philips IntelliSpace PACS is part of the growing portfolio  within Philips recently-launched Healthcare Informatics Solutions and Services Group, which offers consulting and solutions services to hospitals and health systems as they pursue new, more effective models to improve access, optimize workflows and increase quality across the continuum of care. IntelliSpace PACS interoperability with the EMR provides relevant data and collaboration throughout the enterprise to significantly advance workflow management, diagnostic imaging and reporting.

"Innovative health systems like Georgia Regents are moving to new business models of patient-centric care, recognizing that  accessible and accurate imaging data is a critical piece of the puzzle," said Jeroen Tas, chief executive officer, Philips Healthcare Informatics Solutions and Services. "This is just one of the system-wide, interoperable solutions we'll be implementing at Georgia Regents to enable clinicians to better collaborate on diagnosis and treatment, provide broader insight into patient data and expand high quality healthcare to areas where it's needed most."
