This new award reflects Philips’s dedication to improving workflows to increase reliable, successful, and organized paper sharing, offering seamless, safe access to medical imaging information through various hospitals and health IT networks for radiologists and physicians to help shorten the road correct decisions and treatments.

FREMONT, CA: Royal Philips, a global pioneer in health technologies, has announced that it has received the KLAS Researchs 2021 Best in KLAS Universal Viewer (Imaging) award for its Vendor-Neutral Image Viewer (Vue Motion). This marks the fourth year in a row that, in the KLAS Researchs consumer review-driven awards scheme, Philips zero-footprint, enterprise-wide viewer has won acclaim. This new award reflects Philips’s dedication to improving workflows to increase reliable, successful, and organized paper sharing, offering seamless, safe access to medical imaging information through various hospitals and health IT networks for radiologists and physicians to help shorten the road correct decisions and treatments.

Philips Image Management software (Vue PACS) and Philips EMR (Tasy), which brings data together from the electronic medical record to the referring doctor to help standardize processes for improved productivity, also received recognition in this year’s Best in KLAS Awards: Software and Services report, being ranked top performers in several world markets.

The Philips Enterprise Viewer module removes the need for medical data or image viewing app downloads. To encourage registered users around the company to rapidly and efficiently display patient data and photographs with a single log-in, the viewer may be inserted in an HIS or EMR portal.

The independent viewer should integrate DICOM archives or XDS collections with other providers to ensure that clinicians have access to current or previous imaging, video and waveform samples, and other patient knowledge anytime and wherever necessary. In the information and services industry category, KLAS Research Best in KLAS recognition is awarded for applications that have the broadest organizational and clinical impact on healthcare organizations.

“Each year, thousands of healthcare professionals across the globe take the time to share their voice with KLAS,” said Adam Gale, KLAS President. “They know that sharing their perspective helps vendors to improve and helps their peers make better decisions. These conversations are a constant reminder to me of how necessary accurate, honest, and impartial reporting is in the healthcare industry. The Best in KLAS report and the awards it contains set the standard of excellence for software and services firms. Vendors who win the title of Best in KLAS should celebrate and remember that providers now accept only the best from their products and services. The Best in KLAS award serves as a signal to provider and payer organizations that they should expect excellence from the winning vendors.”

“When it comes to Enterprise Imaging, healthcare organizations are looking for informatics partners to advance digital transformation with scalable solutions that enable secure data access, streamline workflows, and help drive greater quality care,” said Calum Cunningham, General Manager of Enterprise Diagnostic Informatics, Philips. “This recognition by KLAS Research underscores the effectiveness and value of our patient-centric strategy. With our advanced clinical and operational capabilities, enhanced by AI and analytics, we are able to partner with healthcare systems in a more meaningful way as we work toward one integrated workflow that brings data, technology and people together to deliver on the Quadruple Aim of improving patient outcomes, improving patient and staff experience, and lowering the cost of care.”

Philips Vendor-Agnostic Image Viewer provides the relevant clinical images easily and safely to approved users, including physicians, patients, payers, and administrators, eliminating hardware, location and mobility barriers to enhance healthcare quality, reduce costs, and improved patient service in different environments. For instance, referring doctors may use the device to display their patient’s radiology photos in the convenience of a doctor’s office or the home of patients, helping to create patient interest and trust that contributes to greater commitment to better decision-making and therapy adherence.

Philips Picture Archiving and Communication System (Vue PACS) is a scalable and flexible image management technology that offers scalable (local and wide area) PACS capabilities to hospitals and related organizations. The informatics portfolio of Philips Enterprise Imaging helps hospitals and imaging centers as they aim to connect and improve performance, maximize patient service, health outcomes, and staff experience while minimizing care costs.
