Philips Healthcare (NYSE:PHG) has combined some of the latest information technologies to help hospitals battle healthcare-acquired infections (HAIs), which can extend a hospital stay, lead to rehospitalization, and even to patient death.
HAIs can have devastating effects on patients’ physical, mental/emotional, and financial health, and they cost billions of dollars in added expenses to the healthcare system. There were an estimated 687,000 HAIs in U.S. acute-care hospitals in 2015. About 72,000 hospital patients with HAIs died during their hospitalizations, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
