Philips, Children's Hospital Medical Center team up to enhance data availability

Omaha, Neb.-based Children's Hospital and Medical Center signed a 10-year agreement with Philips, a health technology company, to help drive technological innovations in pediatric care.

The strategic partnership will focus on opportunities that can improve quality and cost effectiveness of patient services. It will focus on connected solutions in diagnostic imaging, patient monitoring, respiratory solutions and clinical informatics.

Under the agreement, Children's will look to standardize care across its departments by deploying Philips' technologies, which will hopefully break down barriers to patient data and clinical decision tools.

"As the only full-service pediatric specialty healthcare center in Nebraska, we know that families from across the region are putting their trust in us," said Richard Azizkhan, MD, president and CEO of Children's. "The partnership will help us deliver on our commitment to improve the life of every child by providing our staff with the clinical support tools and training that can drive a consistent patient experience, improve workflow throughout our network and help improve patient outcomes."
