Philips, American Well team up in global telehealth venture

U.S.-based telehealth provider American Well and Amsterdam-based Philips, a health IT company, joined forces to embed American Well's mobile telehealth services into an array of Philips solutions, the companies announced Monday.

Under the agreement, the companies are seeking to bring telehealth services to Philips' platforms for both healthy consumers and patients with medical needs. American Well's services will be integrated with Philips' personal health and wellness, population health management and clinical programs.

"Partnering with American Well to deliver highly personalized virtual care solutions to consumers and healthcare professionals fits Philips' vision of 24/7, coordinated care across the health continuum — the right care delivered at the right time in the right place," said Jeroen Tas, chief innovation and strategy officer at Philips. "American Well already collaborates with many of the largest insurers and healthcare providers in the U.S., offering great opportunities for joint business development with the aim to create a better patient experience in this important new area of digital healthcare delivery."
