Philips is aiming to provide a new remote intensive care unit monitoring program in Japan so that they can provide better healthcare services along with Telemedicine services.

Phillips is a well-known technology company that focuses mainly on improving people’s lives through their healthcare devices that are useful in diagnosis, treatment, and prevention.

The device will help with patient monitoring and keep health information.

They have collaborated with Showa University in Japan to roll out the country’s first telemedicine program at Showa University hospital and Showa Koto Toyosu Hospital. The program will help in increased savings and case volumes while the mortality rates will go down.

Phillips has implemented these services in different countries like US Middle East and other countries.

Jennifer Kelly, vice president at HealthiVibe, said in a statement. “Aligning with Elligo will increase our industry benchmarking database, providing valuable patient insights that will ultimately enhance our mission of making the patient voice an integral part of the clinical trial development process.”

Hiroyuki Tsusumi who is the CEO of Phillips Japan said in a statement that, “The eICU represents the future of globalized critical care, transforming the delivery of care from the bedside.”
