Philips displays upgraded CIS
At the World Congress of Cardiology held in Barcelona this week, Royal Philips is showcasing a new release of its integrated cardiovascular information system to the European market, as well as demonstrating the commercial release of Motiva, its interactive healthcare platform, for the first time in Europe.
The Philips Xcelera R2.1 integrates exam results from all key cardiology subspecialties, including interventional cardiology, cardiovascular ultrasound, ECG, nuclear cardiology, cardiac CT, cardiac MR, and electrophysiology. This advanced cardiovascular solution for documentation, viewing, quantification, and reporting tasks provides clinicians with access to relevant images and information on patients across the hospital from a single workspace. The new release of Xcelera also brings a variety of new or enhanced clinical and reporting tools for 2-D and 3-D echo, cardiovascular X-ray, nuclear cardiology, 2-D and 3-D cardiac CT and MR, as well as for managing EP recording and mapping information.
Philips also demonstrated Motiva, a TV-based interactive healthcare platform that empowers patients to play a greater role in managing their own chronic conditions. Using a secure broadband connection to the home television, along with home vital sign measurement devices, Motiva enables healthcare providers to educate, motivate, and communicate with patients, as well as monitor their health status remotely. Motiva engages patients daily with an automated yet personalized program of healthcare content -- educational video clips, interactive feedback, health tips, and reminders --centered on evidence-based health behavior change strategies.
Philips also showcased its CT TrueView Technology, Comprehensive Cardiac Analysis, Electrophysiology Software Package, live 3-D pediatric echo and heart failure management capabilities, and the EP Navigator.
