Philips India, IntelliSpace to provide healthcare access solutions

Our Bureau Mumbai | Updated on June 27, 2013

Philips India is keen to increase healthcare access across India, especially in the field of critical care. The company announced the expansion of the network of hospitals connected using the IntelliSpace Consultative Critical Care (ICCC) solution.

This is a solution that enables an intensivist at a central location to monitor patients in distant multiple Intensive Care Units (ICUs), almost in real time without compromising on quality of information available to them. It provides a solution to the growing shortage of qualified physicians and nurses, while dramatically improving quality of care, the company said.

The new hospitals added to this network include Aditya hospital at Warangal, Andhra Pradesh, Sreeranga Hospital at Chengalpet, Tamil Nadu and Geetanjali hospital at Tiruchirapalli, Tamil Nadu.

These hospitals will be connected to the Chennai-based InTeleICU, which will act as the command centre monitoring the ICUs of the newly connected hospitals.

This solution enables the ICUs of several remote hospitals to be connected to a big specialist ICU care where best in class critical care specialists monitor and review patient remotely through online data from connected patient monitors and real-time video images of patient conditions.

“The solution has been designed to meet two big healthcare challenges that India is currently facing: lack of qualified critical care experts and access to quality critical care for people in smaller towns and villages,” said A Krishnakumar, President, Healthcare, Philips India.

The IntelliSpace Consultative Critical Care solution, conceived and developed at Philips Innovation Campus Bangalore, focuses on empowering and providing best specialised advice to the onsite clinical staff and working collaboratively with all other specialists.
