Philips on AWS

Founded in the Netherlands in 1891, at the dawn of electricity, Philips first developed cost-effective, reliable incandescent light bulbs before expanding to early medical X-ray imaging, personal care electronics, and even the invention of the CD and DVD. More recently, Philips has honed its focus on creating innovative technological solutions for health and well-being, building its HealthSuite Platform on AWS to drive improved patient outcomes.

Founded in 1891, Philips is a leading health technology company focused on improving people's health and enabling better patient outcomes. As an early adopter of Amazon Web Services (AWS), Philips relies on dozens of AWS services to power the Philips HealthSuite Platform. The platform helps customers improve their efficiency and delivery quality with services that include connections to clinical-grade smart devices, a built-in framework to ingest, manage, and analyze healthcare data, and more. AWS provides Philips and its customers with scalable, cost-effective, regulatory and HIPAA-compliant solutions. From the cloud to the edge, Philips speeds innovation, simplifies security and compliance, and increases efficiency in delivering innovative healthcare solutions by building on AWS.

Disrupting Within: Driving Better Health with Philips

Patients deserve personalized care. But delivering the best health outcomes possible is challenging when there's no centralized location for patient records—and all patients don’t have equal access to the same quality of care.

Its HealthSuite System of Engagement centralizes and secures data, while Philips Oncology Pathways Navigator, built on first-class treatment pathways provided by Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, provides doctors with access to excellent treatment recommendations.
