Royal Philips has revealed its latest eCareManager 4.1 enterprise telehealth software at the American Telemedicine Association’s Annual Telemedicine Meeting & Trade Show in Orlando, Florida in the US.

According to Philips, their latest telehealth technology builds on their success in delivering population health management solutions to help combat shortages of critical care teams by providing actionable insights to help improve patient outcomes.

Philips eCareManager is a Class II FDA 510(k) medical device that will provide seamless clinical integration between the teleICU and bedside care teams to help promote proactive care and coordination, allowing quicker intervention for high risk patients.

The platform’s clinical decision support algorithms and CensusMosaic, an enhanced organ-based visual layout and information display, are designed to save valuable time with a streamlined, single-screen view and upgraded entry process for improved data integrity.

“TeleICU technology is a powerful asset in providing proactive care by making quick catches around subtle changes in patient care and showing which patients need immediate attention,” said Chief Strategy and Population Health Officer at Presence Health, Dana Gilbert.

“Since implementing Philips’ eCareManager 4.1 as part of the beta testing process under IRB governance, we have been able to improve workflow efficiency for our clinicians and increase the number of patients that our team can oversee at a time while maintaining improved patient outcomes and thereby giving Presence Health one more way to provide quality, compassionate care,” continued Gilbert.

“Now more than ever health systems need to seamlessly integrate and utilise tools that will help their organisation optimise resources and take care of as much of the patient population as possible,” said Business Leader, Philips Wellcentive and Hospital to Home, Manu Varma.

“As we continue to face physician shortages, allowing health systems to scale their services while providing quality outcomes is critical in the shift to value-based care. This technology eases the burden on physicians by allowing them to see more patients and making the critical care delivery process more efficient, opening up more beds and improving readmission rates,” concluded Varma.
