Philips and Samsung Team Up to Expand IoT Connected Health Ecosystem

By

Royal Philips, a global developer of health technology, and Samsung Electronics have announced plans for a strategic partnership to connect Samsung’s ARTIK Smart IoT Platform to the Philips HealthSuite Digital Platform. This collaboration is designed to allow the Samsung ARTIK ecosystem of connected devices to safely access and share information with Philips’ cloud platform.

“This collaboration will enable healthcare application developers to focus on the development of innovative applications rather than on the technical integration of devices,” said Dale Wiggins, GM, HealthSuite Digital Platform, Philips. “By strengthening our HealthSuite ecosystem with Samsung ARTIK, we will be taking another important step in breaking down the silos in today’s healthcare domain to create a trusted and seamless care experience for both consumers and care professionals.”

Device manufacturers using Samsung’s ARTIK hardware or cloud services will be able to deliver new benefits to their customers with the broad range of applications and services provided by the Philips HealthSuite Digital Platform, including integration of devices and device data into Electronic Medical Records (EMR), Personal Health Records (PHR), and advanced health analytics. Healthcare application developers working with the Philips HealthSuite Digital Platform will be able to use data from devices connected to Samsung’s SmartThings Cloud to develop new, data-driven connected health solutions. They will also be able to leverage data from various sources and IoT solutions, like QualcommLife, Validic and Philips’ own HealthSuite IoT solution which is based on Amazon Web Services IoT.

“This is an incredibly exciting time in healthcare, as the industry begins to harness the power of data to bring better care to consumers,” said James Stansberry, SVP and GM, ARTIK IoT, Samsung Electronics. “Samsung ARTIK-enabled devices and cloud services integrated with Philips HealthSuite can address the growing need for connected health platforms that can safely access, share, and analyze information, helping health systems and providers achieve their goal of delivering better care to consumers, from prevention and detection to diagnosis and treatment.”
