Royal Philips has launched Clinical Trial Accelerator on Philips HealthSuite, a customised set of capabilities that enables life science organisations to integrate, analyse and store clinical and patient-reported data drawn from multiple sources.

This facility enables actionable insights for faster and more informed decision making for firms.

Philips HealthSuite encompasses HIPAA compliant and secure Cloud capabilities.

In addition to allowing patient-centric trials at home, Clinical Trial Accelerator helps in managing data collection whilst also providing security and compliance expected from both patients and life sciencefirms.

Philips HealthSuite digital platform general manager Dale Wiggins said: “Philips HealthSuite already provides Cloud-based services and tools to a wide array of healthcare organisations, and with Clinical Trial Accelerator we have created a tailored set of capabilities to support life science organisations.

“Our innovative, flexible Cloud platform leverages our global healthcare capabilities and is supported by our compliance, security and interoperability expertise.”

HealthSuite’s capabilities include an AI Analytics Workbench that aids in enhanced decision making and standards-based interoperability for Digital Imaging and Communication in Medicine (DICOM) data.

It also features HealthSuite Clinical Data Lake, which is a micro-service that serves as a centralised big data repository for clinical data collection studies and includes controls to curate and manage data in order to address regulatory requirements.

The HealthSuite capabilities provide Cloud-based services and technical tools to companies to meet privacy, security and regulatory requirements. The firms can use these capabilities to develop and operate a new generation of linked healthcare applications.

HealthSuite is claimed to be built to solve the complex challenges of healthcare, and helps in managing device data, collecting personal and health data, storing and sharing data securely, analysing data, building and deploying AI models, and creating solutions on the cloud.

Furthermore, the HealthSuite capabilities power a Philips and third party connected healthcare applications in aspects such as image-guided therapy, sleep and respiratory care, ophthalmology, telehealth, and self-medication.
