Today’s hospitals face multiple challenges. How to provide enhanced services without increasing the burden on a system that is already pushed to its limits? How to make care cost-effective at a time when the cost of healthcare is rising? How best to use resources and support front-line staff to reduce errors and improve quality of care?
Enabling quality healthcare
Philips Healthcare Solutions helps care providers manage the uncertainty surrounding the investments, resources and technology that are so vital to quality healthcare provision. Extending far beyond the supply of equipment, our portfolio of healthcare services includes ﬁnance solutions (MediGo), turnkey project solutions (MediQuip) and managed services (MediServ). These allow hospitals to plan, implement and manage their long-term technology provision with solutions tailored to their speciﬁc needs, thereby meeting clinical expectations and business and operational imperatives. This leaves them free to concentrate on what matters most – their patients.
Beneﬁts all round
We help our clients increase their return on investment through cost reductions and improved process efﬁciencies. And by keeping them up to date with the most modern and innovative medical technologies, we help them achieve faster patient throughput, cutting cost per patient and reducing the number of units and staff required to service patients. For patients, this translates to shorter waiting times, fewer rescheduled appointments, faster examinations and less anxiety associated with the care process.
