Medical Care



Driven to make a dif erence People focused. Healthcare simplified.

Giving people the best healthcare possible Patients deserve the best possible care, but they also deserve the best possible experience. We help you give them both.
How? By making your work easier: removing the barriers that hold you back, providing you with advanced, effective and intuitive medical technology, and freeing up the time and energy you need to connect with your col eagues – and, most important of al , your patients.
And because each patient is an individual, we help you treat them as the unique person they are, from prevention or early diagnosis, right through to recovery, monitoring, or long-term disease management. Whether it's in the ambulance, the hospital, the office, or the home.
At the same time, we know you have to work within constraints: affordable, reliable, and sustainable are words we understand.
Care cycle driven

It is simple, really. We want to help save lives.
Automated external defibril ators (AEDs) help emergency responders,
both professionals and everyday people do just that. More than 10 years
ago, Philips was a major catalyst behind the public access defibril ation
movement. Now, more than 500,000 Philips defibril ators have been
distributed to airports, schools, workplaces, and homes worldwide.

Or they could divert her to a specialized hospital so this frightened woman can bypass the emergency department and go straight to the cardiac catheterization lab for angioplasty. There, Philips' integrated approach has simplified workflow so clinicians can focus on the patient experience and clinical outcomes. where it's neededPeople are getting older and the healthcare system is overburdened and costs are unsustainable. Health systems cannot simply scale the current model of care to improve quality and meet the needs of an increasing number of patients. The only option is to redesign the way critical care is managed.

RT is effective at palliating both locally advanced and met-astatic cancer, including related symptoms of pain, bleeding, or obstruction. Most data on pal-liative RT is in regard to its use in the treatment of painful bone metastases.
