Amsterdam, the Netherlands – Royal Philips (NYSE: PHG, AEX: PHIA), a global leader in health technology, today announced its Vendor-Neutral Image Viewer (Vue Motion) has won KLAS Research’s 2021 Best in KLAS Universal Viewer (Imaging) award. This marks the fourth year in a row that Philips’ zero-footprint, enterprise-wide viewer has received recognition in KLAS Research’s customer review-driven awards program. This latest accolade demonstrates Philips’ commitment to optimizing workflows to enhance timely, efficient and coordinated document sharing, giving radiologists and physicians seamless, secure access to patients’ imaging reports across multiple facilities and health IT systems to help shorten the path to precise decisions and treatments. Philips’ Image Management software (Vue PACS) and Philips EMR (Tasy), which brings data together from the electronic medical record to the referring physician to help standardize and centralize processes for enhanced efficiency, also received recognition in this year’s ‘Best in KLAS Awards: Software and Services’ report, being ranked top performers in several world markets.
The Philips Enterprise Viewer module eliminates the need to download software for medical data or image viewing. The viewer can be embedded in a HIS or EMR portal to enable authorized users across the enterprise to quickly and easily view patient data and images with a single log-in. The independent viewer can be integrated with other suppliers’ DICOM archives or XDS repositories to ensure that clinicians have access to current or prior imaging, video and waveforms studies and other patient data whenever and wherever needed.
KLAS Research’s Best in KLAS recognition in the software and services market segment is awarded for solutions that have the broadest operational and clinical impact on healthcare organizations.
“Each year, thousands of healthcare professionals across the globe take the time to share their voice with KLAS,” said Adam Gale, KLAS President. “They know that sharing their perspective helps vendors to improve and helps their peers make better decisions. These conversations are a constant reminder to me of how necessary accurate, honest, and impartial reporting is in the healthcare industry. The Best in KLAS report and the awards it contains set the standard of excellence for software and services firms. Vendors who win the title of ‘Best in KLAS’ should celebrate and remember that providers now accept only the best from their products and services. The ‘Best in KLAS’ award serves as a signal to provider and payer organizations that they should expect excellence from the winning vendors.”
“When it comes to Enterprise Imaging, healthcare organizations are looking for informatics partners to advance digital transformation with scalable solutions that enable secure data access, streamline workflows, and help drive greater quality care,” said Calum Cunningham, General Manager of Enterprise Diagnostic Informatics at Philips. “This recognition by KLAS Research underscores the effectiveness and value of our patient-centric strategy. With our advanced clinical and operational capabilities, enhanced by AI and analytics, we are able to partner with healthcare systems in a more meaningful way as we work toward one integrated workflow that brings data, technology and people together to deliver on the Quadruple Aim of improving patient outcomes, improving patient and staff experience, and lowering the cost of care.”
Philips’ Vendor-Agnostic Image Viewer quickly and securely delivers the right clinical images to authorized stakeholders – including clinicians, patients, payers and administrators – removing the barriers of technology, location and mobility in order to improve healthcare delivery, lower costs and provide a better patient experience in multiple settings. For example, referring clinicians can use the system to show radiology images to their patients in the comfort of a doctor’s office or the patient’s home, helping to build the patient engagement and confidence that leads to better decision-making and therapy adherence.
Philips Picture Archiving and Communication System (Vue PACS) is a scalable and modular image management solution that provides hospitals and related institutions with scalable (local and wide area) PACS functionalities.
