Philips debuts new cloud-based clinical analytics dashboard to enhance patient care and staff effici





Royal Philips announced the launch of IntelliSpace Console Critical Care, a cloud-based clinical decision support dashboard supporting enhanced workflows in the intensive care unit (ICU). Debuting at the 2016 HIMSS Annual Conference and Exhibition in Las Vegas, Nev., IntelliSpace Console is designed to improve critical care with smart clinical decision making, enhanced patient monitoring and tracking of quality metrics.
The easy-to-use dashboard gives clinicians access to patient data across multiple systems and EMRs to help streamline, prioritize and analyze complex patient data quickly. IntelliSpace Console is the result of a multi-year clinical study and a research collaboration with Ambient Clinical Analytics and the Mayo Clinic. It is the latest to join Philips’ portfolio of advanced health technology and integrated informatics solutions helping to improve workflow efficiencies and patient outcomes with clinical decision support applications.
In critical care settings where every second counts, clinicians need to make timely care decisions and navigating the vast amounts of clinical data available at the patient bedside can make it difficult for clinicians to analyze so much information at once. IntelliSpace Console addresses this issue comprehensively and transforms patient data from multiple sources, including EMRs, into actionable insights. The smart dashboard provides intensivists, nurses, respiratory therapists and other specialists with the context-relevant clinical information needed to make decisions quickly and efficiently in critical care settings, leading to better care and greater productivity.
“As health systems continue to move toward value-based care while at the same time facing an explosion of patient data, solutions such as IntelliSpace Console help clinicians make sense of increasingly complex patient information in a meaningful way,” said Carla Kriwet, CEO, Patient Care and Monitoring Solutions, Philips. “This advanced visualization dashboard enables clinicians to make quick, informed decisions, and ultimately provide enhanced care across the health care continuum.”
“The amount of patient data available in the Intensive Care Units is incredible, but it also places a substantial burden on the acting clinician to make quick and effective patient care decisions while making sense of mountains of information,” said Vitaly Herasevich, MD, PhD, of Mayo Clinic, one of the co-inventors of the technology. “This new solution is formatted as a real-time dashboard that organizes information the way a clinician processes data in a real-life patient scenario to facilitate decision making. This reduces stress, saves time, supports workflow and enhances the care process while allowing multiple members of a patient’s care team to be ‘on the same page’.”
