Philips Healthcare has recently partnered with openDoctor with the aim of delivering an integrated radiology patient engagement platform, leveraging openDoctor’s real-time online appointment scheduling services as part of its patient management solution. A user-friendly platform was created as a result, allowing patients to book appointments that are convenient for their individual schedules while optimizing staff and location availability simultaneously.
The company has also collaborated with Ibex Medical Analytics Ltd. to jointly promote digital pathology and AI solutions to hospitals, pathology laboratories and global health networks.
With an integrated vacuum pump, the LP100 combines irrigation and suction functions in one device, making it the device of choice for minimally invasive surgeries. Additionally, it provides full flexibility, as it is possible to combine irrigation with integrated suction, or wall suction. A suction and irrigation volume of up to 2 liters per minute enables a clear view during the operation. Based on RFID technology, the system also provides greater safety during treatment by ensuring that a new irrigation tube is used for each patient.
