The Philips Medical Tablet is meant to provide remote access to patient data. The goal is to allow health providers to improve workflows and better manage increases in patient volume. A fully portable setup is possible for the remote monitoring kit— an important feature during the present COVID-19 pandemic as well as future emergencies. Plus, the Medical Tablet is not linked to a central monitoring station, so it can communicate through a WiFi connection.
“As clinicians work to navigate increased workloads, safety concerns, and transitions to remote care settings, they require solutions that map to these increasingly challenging circumstances,” said Peter Ziese, GM of Monitoring Analytics at Philips.
“The Philips Medical Tablet with IntelliVue XDS software gives clinicians critical patient data like vital signs and clinical decision support applications right at their fingertips, empowering them to make informed care decisions no matter where they are,” Ziese said in a Feb. 1 news release.
