Philips teams with Microsoft

Philips Healthcare of Andover, MA, is collaborating with Microsoft of Redmond, WA, to build on Philips' healthcare informatics and advanced clinical decision-support products at the point of care.

The companies plan to integrate technologies to enhance delivery of health information, efficiency, and productivity, while reducing development and infrastructure costs.

At this week's annual Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) conference, Philips and Microsoft are showcasing two works-in-progress from the partnership.

The Philips Visicu eICU program is designed for remote, 24-hour monitoring of critically ill patients. Philips, in collaboration with Microsoft, is showcasing a conceptual Critical Care Analytics Portal designed to support executive decision-making.

Philips and Microsoft also will demonstrate technology interoperability with a look at the first of Philips' patient monitoring connectivity products, currently being adapted to run on Microsoft Windows 7.
