The challenge


Budget constraints in healthcare are hardly limited to IT and informatics. But making decisions such as whether to invest in new technology or optimize existing systems is a near-daily concern, in particular when it impacts your electronic medical record system and its critical role in your infrastructure.


IT investment decisions must deliver not only interoperability and seamless integration, but they are also expected to show a clear financial impact on the bottom line—delivering value both today and over time, and reducing healthcare costs.


With a greater scrutiny on results, leaders in IT have to demonstrate the ability to select and manage technologies that can quantifiably enhance their systems in a meaningful way.

The opportunity


Health informatics and IT leaders are increasingly relied upon as a key strategic decision-maker, with both the potential to influence and responsibility to impact the financial performance of a health system.


Our goal is help you maximize efficiency and reduce waste—whether optimizing the efficiency of staff and equipment, or investing in remote technologies that can deliver care in less expensive settings and reduce readmissions.


Philips works as a true partner to help you meet your fiscal and operational goals—and create cost-saving and containment opportunities—with your budget and enterprise in mind.
