Cognizant will use its digital engineering expertise to build and operate client-specific applications on the Philips HealthSuite digital health platform, the two companies announced today.
Applications from Cognizant will integrate advanced data analytics to provide relevant data to patients and clinicians at the appropriate point of care. As a result, cognizant and Philips said healthcare providers will better monitor their patients outside traditional clinical settings, and patients can stay more informed. The applications could also quickly provide actionable insights for both biopharmaceutical and medical device manufacturers.
“Partnering with Cognizant’s experienced digital engineering teams will accelerate the adoption of solutions built on Philips HealthSuite, delivering digital solutions across the healthcare continuum in a secure and compliant manner, and ultimately helping guide better health decisions for patients,” Shez Partovi, chief innovation & strategy officer at Royal Philips, said in a news release.
Built on Amazon Web Services, Philips HealthSuite provides an integrated, modular set of standards-based capabilities to support digital health development. The platform securely stores critical healthcare data and provides advanced data analytics and AI capabilities while delivering interoperability, connectivity, and regulatory compliance. Philips says that more than 100 types of medical devices are already integrated into HealthSuite, with its cloud platform already archiving more than145 billion clinical images.
