NYU Langone Health partners with Philips to accelerate health tech innovation

New York University (NYU) Langone Health is partnering with Philips to enhance patient care through innovation and technology commercialization.

The eight-year strategic partnership will enable NYU Langone clinicians to collaborate on health technology projects in real-time, with the support of Philips’ innovation and leadership in the field.

Specifically, clinicians will have access to the company’s IntelliSite Pathology solution, enterprise informatics, AI-enabled diagnostic imaging technologies, and the Philips Capsule Medical Device Information Platform (MDIP), which will enable them to simplify workflows and unlock the power of health data.

“Access to transformative health care technologies developed by Philips will provide our researchers with countless opportunities to advance knowledge and develop new diagnostic and treatment modalities that enhance patient care, safety and outcomes,” says Dafna Bar-Sagi, NYU Langone’s chief scientific officer, executive vice president and vice dean for science.

In addition to the technologies being made available to NYU Langone, the two organizations have also deepened their existing partnership through the development of new research programs initially focused on a roadmap for the future of digital pathology, patient monitoring, ultrasound, and MRI.

“NYU Langone has always been a trailblazer when it comes to technology adoption and providing world-class patient care,” says Julia Strandberg, Chief Business Leader of Connected Care for Philips. “With the adoption of these technologies, they are at the forefront of leveraging a new enterprise monitoring platform and business model to help enable a better patient experience, improved staff productivity and reduced cost of care. At the same time, they understand the real value of technology allowing clinicians to focus on what matters most — providing the best care possible to their patients.”
