In June, Philips released its Future Health Index 2019 report, “Transforming healthcare experiences: Exploring the impact of digital health technology on healthcare professionals and patients,” which looked at the shift from volume-based to value-based care and the effort to create more sustainable health systems worldwide.

The annual report, now in its fourth year, focused on the role of digital health technology and found that while “the majority of individuals” want access to their digital health records and are ready to share them with healthcare professions, “insufficient data sharing” is still a challenge at present.

“Two-way sharing of information is not only essential to deliver the right care at the right time, it also helps to improve the patient and clinician experience,” Kimpen noted in a statement at the time. He stressed that the report shows that better informed patients took better care of their own health, as well, which also tends to lower healthcare costs. “The patient-clinician relationship is highly symbiotic,” he observed, adding that, “what one side does affects the other, and vice versa.”
