Philips said today its Trilogy family of portable ventilators are slated to be connected to its Care Orchestrator connected care management application.
The Care Orchestrator program is a cloud-connected health app designed to connect informatics and intelligence info for providers, payers and patients alongside clinical management workflow information.
The system is slated to go operational this year, and will connect sleep and respiratory devices, electronic medical records, insurance claims and billing systems as well as other applications from Philips’ HealthSuite Digial Platform.
“Enabling cloud connectivity of Philips’ Trilogy ventilation line is an important step toward our larger ambition to commercialize a respiratory care management service that enables better health and better care at a lower cost. Philips wants to empower the homecare community to work as one with the patient, enabling increased possibilities in remote patient monitoring and enhanced care from the hospital to the home,” respiratory care biz leader Eli Diacopoulos said in a press release.
Users of connectivity-equipped current Trilogy ventilators will be able to connect to the Care Orchestrator through a simple update, Philips said.
In addition to Trilogy ventilators, the company said its EverFlo and SimplyGo oxygen concentrators and iNeb respiratory drug delivery device will also be able to connect to the Care Orchestrator.
