Call it the birth of app-based ultrasound. Vitor Rocha, CEO of Ultrasound at Philips said “App-Based Ultrasound provides valuable information to the right people at the right time. It’s designed to drive transformation in care delivery and digital health – a dynamic combination that can extend the reach of ultrasound in a remarkable way.”
Philips envisions an “app-based ultrasound ecosystem,” and open innovation platform delivering ultrasound earlier to people who need imaging, and expanding access among more healthcare providers.
J. Christian Fox, MD, clinical emergency medicine professor at the University of California, Irvine says “In heavily trafficked, high-stress environments such as the emergency department, access to technology like app-based ultrasound that can promptly direct treatment is critical to both the provider and patient in achieving positive health outcomes.”
