New platform aids diagnosis by leveraging genomic, oncology info
A vendor offering a platform for radiology and other imaging modalities is expanding it to incorporate other large healthcare data sources.
The new version of the Philips IntelliSpace Enterprise Edition is intended to incorporate oncology, precision medicine and other data, to enable more coordinated diagnosis and treatment of patients.
The expansion of the platform will enable it to be used to achieve personalized medicine, holding the information needed for individualized diagnoses and treatment for cancer patients, Philips says.
The platform enables interoperability between different types of data, enabling physicians to work with imaging, electronic heard records data and genomic information to achieve more accurate diagnoses, says Rob Cascella, chief business leader for precision diagnosis for Philips.
The platform also provides hospital networks the possibility to exchange clinical information, to help improve the overall experience and efficiency through standards-based interoperability.
“The goal is to turn information into knowledge and wisdom in treating patients,” Cascella says.
The enhanced integration in the new platform builds on the existing suite of offerings from IntelliSpace Enterprise Edition. It should enable clinicians to have wider access to data from advanced technology solutions with the goal of reducing costs, improving patient and staff satisfaction and achieving transformation toward value-based care.
“In the constantly evolving health IT landscape, we’re dedicated to working with leading hospital organizations like CarolinaEast Health System, to provide them the most advanced technology and adaptive intelligence to manage vast amounts of patient-generated data to help drive precision diagnosis,” said Carla Kriwet, Chief Business Leader of Connected Care at Philips.
“With the additional capabilities of IntelliSpace Enterprise Edition, clinicians at CarolinaEast have access to data from disparate sources – including integrated information within the EHR – and predictive analytics, to help drive better informed care decisions.”
