Nov 24, 2020 PRESS RELEASES Comments Off on Philips debuts AI-enabled, automated Radiology Workflow Suite at RSNA 2020
November 24, 2020
Amsterdam, the Netherlands – Royal Philips (NYSE: PHG, AEX: PHIA), a global leader in health technology, today announced its participation in the RSNA 2020 virtual event, featuring its Radiology Workflow Suite of end-to-end solutions to drive operational and clinical efficiency through the digitalization, integration, and virtualization of radiology. At RSNA 2020, Philips will showcase a coordinated suite of offerings for the first time, introducing key solutions that come together to enhance the entire radiology workflow to address the most pressing operational challenges across diagnostic and interventional radiology.
The effective capture, analysis and reporting of data is now at the core of modern diagnostics, with healthcare providers increasingly challenged to implement integrated, digital systems that improve the experience of staff and patients, provide better health outcomes and lower the cost of care. The impact can be felt across the entire system, as 97% of radiology departments are unable to meet their reporting requirements,  and repeat, low-value, and unnecessary imaging exams cost them as much as $12 billion annually .
The situation has been further exacerbated by COVID-19. To manage backlog after an estimated 50-70% reduction in imaging volume during the peak of the pandemic, radiology departments are now being challenged to combine exams and procedures for patients with cancer, heart disease, and other conditions, while continuing to support critical care for COVID-19 patients. Combined with the growing global shortage of radiologists  and the fact that diagnostic and treatment workloads are expanding in both volume and complexity, radiology departments are under pressure to provide more precise diagnosis and treatment, while minimizing wait times for patients.
Integrated workflow solutions for patients, technologists and radiologists
By taking a systems view of imaging, Philips is connecting workflows (patient, acquisition, interpretation, collaboration) across the imaging enterprise to help improve outcomes for patients and enhance the efficiency and work experience of radiologists, technologists and administrators. Reinforcing Philips’ strong foundation in imaging, therapy guidance, and clinical solutions, Philips Radiology Workflow Suite is designed to be vendor-neutral and can be implemented in any radiology department around the world. Philips portfolio of integrated solutions featured in the Radiology Workflow Suite includes imaging technologies optimized for easy of scanning, informatics solutions and related solutions for disease management, patient management and more.
“Precision across the diagnostic enterprise is more important today than ever before. To help meet our customers’ greatest challenges, we are pivoting away from standalone products to an integrated systems and solutions approach focused on data and intelligence to drive operational efficiency in an automated way for informed practice management and continuous improvement,” said Kees Wesdorp, Chief Business Leader, Precision Diagnosis at Philips. “Visitors to our Philips RSNA virtual site will experience Philips smart connected systems with solutions that optimize radiology workflows, generate insights from integrated diagnostics leading to clear care pathways and predictable outcomes for every patient.”
The Philips Radiology Workflow Suite helps drive clinical and operational efficiency across all phases of the diagnostic enterprise, including:
Philips solutions spotlight at RSNA 2020: advancing precision diagnosis to enable a clear care pathway
