Should the software detect signs of patient deterioration, clinicians will be notified to step in and manage care.

Patients enrolled in this program have indicated higher levels of satisfaction, with 80 percent referring to the biosensor as innovative care, and 73 percent saying they feel better taken care of when wearing the sensor. In addition, 95 percent rate the sensor as comfortable to wear on their chests.

Prasad says in addition to improving clinical outcomes and patient satisfaction, these innovations are furthering Northwell Health’s confidence in its ability to determine and provide the right set of care to patients at the earliest possible moment.

“We are excited to go forward with this innovation strategy to catch the patient before the patient becomes a real patient, and add this continuum of care from the ED to the ICU to the home, and hopefully keep them there for a long time,” he said.

In addition to Northwell’s successes with Philips, the roundtable also addressed Philips’ integration and views on AI capabilities for imaging technologies, such as Illumeo; the launch of its next-generation patient monitoring solution in the U.S.; its acquisitions of Forcare and VitalHealth; and its partnership with Phoenix Children’s hospital to accelerate the creation of solutions for addressing the needs of children.

Other speakers included Carla Kriwet, CEO of Philips Connected Care and Health Informatics; David Higginson, CIO of Phoenix Children’s Hospital; Derek Ross, business leader of population health management for Philips; Yair Briman, the CEO of health care informatics at Philips; and Felix Baader, Philips’ business leader for monitoring and analytics.
