Global healthcare technology company Royal Philips has been named Best Overall MedTech Company by the 2018 MedTech Breakthrough Awards. The Awards also recognised Philips SmartSleep as Best Sleep Monitoring Solution. The SmartSleep solution seeks to help those who sleep for fewer than seven hours a night to get deeper and more restful sleep.
In addition to SmartSleep, Philips has developed other important clinical innovations such as Philips Azurion, Philips Intellispace Enterprise Edition, and Philips Elition to improve workflows and help improve patient outcomes. “At Philips, we're are working closely with our partners to create connected solutions that can achieve seamless care, helping them to provide the quality patient care their communities expect, while delivering on our goal of improving the lives of three billion people a year by 2025,” said Vitor Rocha, CEO of Philips North America. “Being honoured by our industry peers with the MedTech Breakthrough Awards for Best Overall MedTech Company and Philips SmartSleep validates our strategy and confirms that our digital health solutions are being recognised by those who understand what is needed in order to move the healthcare industry forward.”
