Philips launches AI platform for healthcare
• Philips HealthSuite Insights delivers healthcare-specific tools and technologies to address the full process of building, maintaining, deploying and scaling AI solutions
• Industry-first online marketplace offers curated, readily available AI assets for license
Amsterdam, the Netherlands – Royal Philips (NYSE: PHG, AEX: PHIA), a global leader in health technology, today announced the launch of HealthSuite Insights, including the Insights Marketplace, to support the advancing adoption of analytics and artificial intelligence (AI) in key healthcare domains. Making their debut at the 2018 HIMSS Conference & Exhibition (HIMSS18), HealthSuite Insights gives data scientists, software developers, clinicians and healthcare providers access to advanced analytic capabilities to curate and analyze healthcare data and offers them tools and technologies to build, maintain, deploy and scale AI-based solutions. Insights Marketplace will provide the healthcare industry’s first ecosystem where curated Artificial Intelligence assets from Philips and others are readily available for license.
AI-based solutions have great potential to improve patient outcomes and care efficiency. However, developing and deploying AI solutions for healthcare use cases can be time consuming, resource intensive and expensive. HealthSuite Insights eases the logistical challenges of deploying AI solutions in research and clinical environments. It accelerates the development of analytics solutions, and reduces development and total cost of AI solutions.
“The quality of your AI is only as good as the quality of the data you feed into it,” said Jeroen Tas, Chief Innovation & Strategy Officer Philips. “We have designed HealthSuite Insights to be used by the people who work with patient data on a daily basis and have the contextual understanding; including doctors, clinicians and hospital managers. With the HealthSuite Insights platform, we give them the ability to bring all the relevant patient information together, curate the data and use the power of AI to support precision diagnosis, personalized therapy, early intervention and greater hospital efficiency.”
Proven tools and technologies
The tools and technologies available through HealthSuite Insights already enable the machine learning and deep learning applications in Philips’ diagnostic imaging solutions, patient monitoring solutions, and oncology and genomics offerings. Enabled by the platform, Philips leverages AI across these innovations, by combining it with other technologies and a deep understanding of the clinical, operational and personal context to augment care professionals and patients/consumers.
Insights Marketplace for reusable AI assets
Philips’ Insights Marketplace initially offers assets supplied by Philips – including assets developed by leading scientists at Philips Research. Medically validated Philips assets will be added later this year. In late 2018, the Insights Marketplace will be further expanded to include assets submitted by third parties.
AI assets built using the Insights Platform are designed to be secure regardless of the execution environment, with sophisticated Identity and Access Management, integrated Blockchain services, and data collection and management services built in. The Insights platform can be deployed on a healthcare cloud infrastructure such as the Philips HealthSuite Digital Platform, or on premise at a provider site.
For more information on HealthSuite Insights and Philips’ full suite of integrated solutions for driving operational efficiency and improving clinical excellence, visit booth #3812 at the 2018 Annual HIMSS Conference & Exhibition taking place March 5 - 9 at the Sands Expo in Las Vegas, NV.

Philips spotlights intelligent, interoperable solutions to drive patient outcomes, clinical excellence and operational efficiency at HIMSS 2018
• Philips’ health IT solutions connect people, data, and technology seamlessly to meet the biggest challenges facing healthcare providers in delivering on the quadruple aim
• Philips’ Adaptive Intelligence approach combines artificial intelligence with the company’s deep understanding of clinical, operational and personal context, to help improve patient outcomes, reduce costs and enhance patient and staff satisfaction
Amsterdam, the Netherlands – Featuring new and enhanced intelligent connected health solutions at the 2018 HIMSS Conference & Exhibition (HIMSS18), Royal Philips (NYSE: PHG, AEX: PHIA), a global leader in health technology, will showcase a broad range of population health management, clinical informatics, cloud-based technology and advanced monitoring analytics solutions to help enhance decision support, improve clinical performance, and drive operational efficiency.
The amount and quality of data available to support clinical decisions is exploding, but data is trapped in silos throughout the hospital enterprise. With health care costs escalating and reimbursements declining, hospital IT leaders are further challenged with ongoing consolidation that creates fragmented IT systems. EHR (electronic health record) implementation and interoperability challenges require seamless cross-system data sharing and collaboration to support clinicians and improve clinical workflow.
Philips has enhanced its deep healthcare informatics portfolio with its most recent acquisition of Forcare, a leader in open-standards-based interoperability software solutions, providing seamless and secure data integration across multiple hospital systems and care settings. Combined with Philips IntelliSpace Enterprise Edition – a full suite of interoperable healthcare informatics applications and services for hospitals and integrated health networks – Philips is helping to meet the evolving challenges of budget constraints and the management, interoperability, security and value maximization of health data and IT platforms.
At the same time, as care moves from the hospital to lower cost settings, including the home, a proactive approach to acute care and precisions diagnostics is needed to help improve health and reduce costs for entire patient populations. With the acquisition of VitalHealth, a leading provider of cloud-based population health management solutions for the delivery of personalized care outside the hospital, Philips has expanded its Population Health Management portfolio with advanced capabilities to manage chronic disease care pathways across multiple settings and disciplines, while actively tracking patient-reported outcomes.
“Philips’ deep expertise in healthcare information technology, including AI, combined with insights gained from our strong customer relationships, uniquely positions us to unlock the collective intelligence and insights across departments within the hospital to deliver the right information at the right time to clinicians,” said Carla Kriwet, CEO, Connected Care and Health Informatics, Philips. “At the core of our HIMSS presence this year is our adaptive intelligence approach and open architecture technologies to help improve interoperability and to enable superior data-driven clinical decisions, improve staff and equipment productivity and drive better patient outcomes and engagement.”
