Latest lineup offers data- and AI-driven care solutions aimed at
driving down costs and improving patient outcomes in new areas of
ORLANDO, Fla.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Samsung Electronics America is showcasing its latest technology
innovations that help healthcare providers offer value-based care at the
annual HIMSS conference. In Room W224 H, Samsung and key solution
partners will demonstrate an array of mobile and wearable solutions that
address some of the main challenges facing clinicians and caregivers,
and the patients and consumers they serve.
“One of the most important trends in healthcare is the move towards
value-based care, in which high quality care is provided at an
affordable cost,” said Dr. David Rhew, Chief Medical Officer & VP and
GM of Enterprise (B2B) Healthcare. “Healthcare organizations need to
shift their focus on keeping patients healthy and out of the hospital to
achieve this. Samsung’s and our partners’ digital health solutions have
an important role to play here, whether that’s delivering advanced tools
for clinical diagnosis and treatments or enhanced preventative methods
for consumer health management.”
Samsung will spotlight solutions in the following areas:
Meeting the Growing Need for Non-Intrusive
Senior Care Solutions
As the senior population continues to grow, healthcare costs and demand
for in-home medical solutions has soared. Technology is already being
integrated into care protocols for seniors in ways that are beneficial
to consumers, caregivers and clinicians. Through wearable- and
tablet-based solutions developed in partnership with Aira,
seniors and their caregivers benefit from simple and effective tools to
manage a range of chronic conditions. Real-time information captured
through wearable-based devices also bring critical piece of mind to
loved ones and caregivers.
Supporting Clinicians with Custom Digital
In clinical settings, it’s critical that new technologies not only
improve efficiencies while ensuring HIPAA compliance, but also
seamlessly integrate into existing workflows and legacy systems.
Samsung’s partners are leveraging Samsung technology to do this very
thing. Solutions developed by TigerConnect,
aid clinicians in managing a range of work—from medical training and
patient assessments, to internal communications and patient information
Empowering Consumers with Digital Wellness
Consumers have greatly accelerated the pace that new medical
technologies are made available based on demand and through improved
adherence with medical instructions. Remote patient monitoring and
patient engagement tools available from Samsung partners such as IdealLife,
Today allow consumers to substitute in-person follow up
visits to a doctor’s office or hospital with a virtual check-up.
Customized medical-grade mobile devices, leveraging Bluetooth technology
and protected by Samsung’s Knox security, empower patients and
clinicians with better health information and ability to communicate
Meeting Patient Demand for Medical Devices
As digital transformation continues to disrupt existing health
technologies, single purpose devices are rapidly become obsolete, as
they’re replaced by more intuitive and pleasing to use consumer mobile
devices. Samsung has been working with partners such as DexCom
to customize its user-friendly smartphones to serve as a consumer’s
primary care management platform and allow for more seamless and
discreet condition management. Programs have been implemented for
conditions including diabetes, cognitive diseases like Parkinson’s and
spinal cord injuries, chronic pain and incontinence.
Senior care and corporate wellness solutions will also be on display by Harman,
a Samsung company.
Samsung will host a panel at HIMSS, “Data Meets Diagnosis: How
Technology is Changing Brain Health Assessments” 3:00 – 4:00 p.m.
