Interoperability of Philips Capsule Medical Device Information Platform (MDIP) with Philips Patient Information Center iX (PIC iX) includes streaming, vendor-neutral data to support care delivery and collaboration

A single, comprehensive patient view 


October 11, 2023 — Royal Philips (NYSE: PHG, AEX: PHIA), a global leader in health technology, has announced the interoperability of Philips Capsule Medical Device Information Platform (MDIP) with Philips Patient Information Center iX (PIC iX), providing hospitals with a first-of-its-kind, comprehensive patient overview. As a world leader monitoring more than 600 million patients each year worldwide, Philips is creating an open patient monitoring ecosystem to bring together disparate medical devices and systems on a single interface. Interoperability between MDIP and PIC iX gives clinicians a new clinical perspective that enables the capture of streaming data flowing freely from a variety of medical device manufacturers on an open, scalable, secure platform. By disseminating this information through the Patient Information Center, clinicians have a single source, comprehensive overview of a patient’s condition that helps empower caregivers to make treatment recommendations confidently from anywhere throughout the hospital’s digital environment. 

Breaking down patient data barriers 

Historically, data from medical device vendors has been siloed, leaving clinicians with the laborious task of referencing multiple sources to gain a complete clinical view of the patient. The inefficiencies caused by this disjointed process can impact a clinician’s ability to deliver timely diagnoses and treatments to patients. Philips is addressing technical obstacles associated with interoperability, such as device-specific connectivity protocols and security challenges across the organization, to help caregivers view, document, report, and analyze data before making care-related decisions. 

Pulling data from a variety of different non-Philips devices, such as ventilators, infusion pumps, and third-party vital signs monitors, Philips presents and distributes the information in a single, standardized interface. Clinicians are then presented with a comprehensive picture of a patient's health based on available medical device data. Access to this level of detailed information may minimize the time a clinician spends prioritizing data from multiple sources. With the goal of creating efficiencies associated with determining diagnoses and treatment decisions, this new interoperability may allow caregivers to spend more time providing direct patient care. 

“Every day, clinicians make countless care decisions based on information from divided medical devices and systems. It’s time we start caring for the carers by making data more accessible,” said Christoph Pedain, General Manager, Hospital Patient Monitoring at Philips. “By ever-improving availability and accessibility of patient information, clinicians and patients benefit through enhanced workflows, insights, improved care delivery and safety measures that may lead to better health outcomes and the better use of staff and infrastructure.” 

Improving clinical workflows through harmonized data 

Data is captured from almost any device or patient monitor vendor with the aim of improving competencies and processes. Harmonized data is available to caregivers across the hospital. A streamlined, standardized view of the patient can be accessed through the central station, web, or mobile application, so clinicians can act more quickly regardless of their location in the hospital. Meaningful insights and status updates allow clinicians to automate administrative tasks or close information gaps, helping them save time and get back to treating patients. 

“In a healthcare landscape burdened by disparate data, there exists a need to usher in the next wave of clinical innovation. But one health technology company cannot do this alone,” said Lynne A. Dunbrack, Group Vice President at International Data Corporation, a premier global provider of market intelligence.  “The only way that hospitals can achieve the next level of efficiency and quality of care is by sharing patient data across systems, vendors, and devices. With this new offering, Philips is in a unique position to help drive new vendor-to-vendor interoperability standards to better support our care providers and the patients they serve.” 

Committed to an open ecosystem 

This interoperability is the latest example of Philips’ journey to create a large open patient monitoring ecosystem that includes third-party applications and algorithms. The unique vendor-to-vendor interoperability helps to improve access and availability to critical patient information, supporting care delivery and collaboration. A comprehensive ecosystem allows hospitals to better leverage digital health investments and manage devices across multiple vendors. Health systems can establish a balance between standardized and personalized care across acuities and disease pathways. 

Enabled by the Philips PIC iX infrastructure and applications that are centrally managed, maintained, serviced, and secured, customers will receive support and consultative services to help them navigate installation, analytics, and optimization.
