Roy Jakobs was appointed internally to head connected care at Philips on 28 January, shortly before COVID-19 forced the first of many lockdowns around the world. The disruption prompted a rapid rethink of priorities, which has shown opportunities for lasting health care system change.
The advent of COVID-19 and its effects on care delivery have meant that short-term priorities for health care systems have switched temporarily to public health emergency mode. But the longer-term need to restructure delivery around outcomes and federated data management for patients is here to stay, says Royal Philips’ Jeroen Tas.
Philips has added a Clinical Trials Accelerator functionality to the cloud-based HealthSuite digital platform, underlining its role in securely managing and collecting device and personal data for use by third-party clients seeking to build health care solutions.
Seven companies – GE, Medtronic, ResMed, Hill-Rom, Vyaire, Hamilton Medical and Zoll – will manufacture 64,431 medical ventilators under the Defense Production Act at a cost of more than $1.4bn, the US Department of Health and Human Services said on 13 April. That figure, when combined with the $646.7m recently awarded to Royal Philips to make 45,500 vents, means the US government will spend more than $2bn on the devices.
